Passengers don’t want to be waiting too long nor have to rush or find out their bags didn’t make the flight. The strive for excellence puts baggage handling staff under even more pressure to re-direct the luggage accurately, often within a small timeframe and avoiding short-shipments. One of the major hurdles to be overcome is unreadable bag tags. The majority of luggage can be easily processed through the fully automated Baggage Handling System (BHS) but periodically bags with unreadable tags must be directed to a Manual Encoding Station (MES). This diversion adds extra time and may cause delays. of the no-read bags no longer have to be diverted to a MES as an image of the tag is sent directly to an operator who encodes the information remotely.

them now they definitely worked well enough for us to consider this at a later stage when we implement mobile devices as part of the BHS operation. Will VCS replace the need for MES? KM: I don’t think that it will completely replace it but it will certainly reduce the need for MES which was our objective. How do you justify the investment in the VCS? KM: We already had cameras installed so the decision to make a business case for the VCS was a natural development. I would have to add, however, that even if we had needed to invest in cameras, the reduction in no-reads alone would have been...

NEW APPROACH TO BAGGAGE STORAGE From a line-based to rack-based early bag store A new approach to the early baggage storage (EBS) promises to provide more flexible check-in times for passengers in addition to helping airports to manage peak volumes and enhance the productivity of the groundhandling staff. The move from the conventional line-based EBS, based on a sorter, conveyor or tote-based system, to a rack-based CrisStore® system transforms the conventional EBS into a dynamic EBS. This changes the conventional push-based system, in which bags are introduced, sorted and discharged to a...
