Alstef Awarded Additional BAGXPress Contract at Paris Orly West

Following the successful trial of an Alstef BAGXPress baggage drop-off machine at Paris Orly’s West Terminal, Aéroports de Paris improved its passenger flow by reorganising the
baggage drop-off area in Hall 2.  Now, some modifications will be made to the terminal in order to install five more BAGXpress machines.  ADP has also asked Alstef to replace the conveyor system.
The development of BAGXPress, designed by Alstef and Aéroports de Paris, started about three years ago with the manufacturing of several prototypes.
BAGXPress has been designed to provide the fastest check-in process, with up to 120 bags per hour.  The revised baggage area is scheduled to open in time for the Christmas holiday period.
