Materna is to supply a self-service bag drop installation for Toronto Pearson International Airport. Toronto Pearson is Canada’s biggest and busiest airport, welcoming 41 million passengers in 2015.
The installation allows passengers from several airlines to check in their luggage autonomously. The airport has undergone recent facility improvements as part of a larger project to update the way passengers check in with their airlines, access security screening and, for passengers traveling to the United States, Customs and Border Protection.
The self-service bag drop allows airlines to automate the bag drop process for already checked-in passengers. Passengers have different choices as part of their check-in experience. They may print or download their travel documents at home or use their mobile device and move straight to the baggage drop-off on arriving at the airport, rather than standing in line.
For better support on-site, the company opened a new subsidiary in Toronto on October 1st.
Materna opened a subsidiary in Orlando, Florida, following a similar contract at John Wayne Airport in California. The company has also acquired the Norwegian self-service bag drop company DSG Bagdrop AS.
