Rising demand at Riga International Airport has prompted the Latvian gateway to award a €1 million contract to Logan Teleflex to upgrade its baggage handling system.
The contract will see UK-based Logan Teleflex design and project manage the delivery and implementation of the baggage handling system, including crucial level 2 and 3 x-ray screening equipment machines, prior to a go live date of March 2011.
Importantly, the new system will be located in an extension to the existing terminal, thus avoiding any impact on the airport’s busy day-to-day operations.
The Logan baggage system features a dedicated 100% HBS screening line to enable it to cope with the increased number of bags, which must be screened to EU standard before being loaded onto the scheduled connecting flight.
Earlier this year, Logan Teleflex announced that it was working on an additional Baggage Handling Systems (BHS) for the new Terminal 2A facility at Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport.
