Consortium Awarded New Baggage Contract at Paris Charles de Gaulle

Paris CDG   ADPThe Beumer Group and Alstef will install a new baggage handling system to handle checked-in luggage from the airport’s existing Terminal 2E to Satellite 3 (S3).
Satellite 3, which handles large-capacity aircraft such as the Airbus A380, previously used the systems in Terminals 2E and 2F to handle check-in bags.
ADP says the move will allow it improve its operational performance in the event of future growth of operations.
The consortium’s new baggage handling system will connect six existing checked-in islands to a new Crisplant CrisBag system, with a capacity of 3,200 bags per hour. It will include five integrated Standard 3 screening machines. Alstef will supply and install 4,593ft (1,400m) of conveyors, 12 make-up laterals and six make-up carousels.
Nadine Vennat, spokesperson for Aéroports de Paris commented: “Starting in 2018, this new BHS will allow Air France and its Skyteam partners to improve sorting quality and reduce delays for baggage checked in at Terminal 2E. The additional equipment to collect and sort connecting baggage to Satellite 4 (S4) will be the object of an additional call for tenders in 2016.”
