Behind the scenes of a baggage handling system

Issue 2 2011  •  11 April 2011  •  Michael Rumpf, Senior Project Consultant, Baggage Operations at Muscat and Salalah airports, Oman

When planning for a new BHS (Baggage Handling System) I recommend looking at your bags as if they were customers. Similar to a study on passenger profiles for a new terminal, an analysis of bags should be done. The dimensions, typical shapes, materials, per Pax ratio, even content will get you important results that have to be taken into consideration for planning a new BHS.80% of the typical Middle East checked baggage would be out-of-gauge in Europe, so it is important to get the average profile and per route specifics of your baggage to cater for sufficient baggage handling facilities.
