Pteris Global Bags $5m Project

AIRPORT LOGISTICS system provider Pteris Global has secured a project worth US$5m to supply and install baggage handling systems for Terminal 3 at Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport, China.
The company previously supplied similar systems for the airport’s Terminal 1 in 2000.  The new project is part of management’s plans to upgrade and expand the airport.
Pteris Global will design and install three check-in islands with 84 check-in counters, six baggage departure lines with a total length of 2,887ft (880m), six departure carousels of 1,073ft (327m) and eight arrival carousels of 2,736ft (834m).
CEO of Pteris Global Oon Choong Howe said the new order “re-affirms our competitive position in China.”
Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport recorded 17 million passengers in 2010 and, after the expansion, it hopes to achieve a capacity of 25.6 million passengers, 500,000 tons of cargo and 260,000 annual flights.  Work is due to be completed by the end of 2012.
