Paris CDG launches self-service bag drop trial
Four Scan&Fly units will be trialled for three months in Paris Charles de Gaulle’s Terminal 2E.
Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport will soon start a three-month trial of Scan&Fly self-bag drop units, which allow passengers to drop off their own bag without assistance from an airline agent.
The bag drop units, which are supplied by Type22 and can be retrofitted into existing check-in desks, will be available to Air France passengers flying from Terminal 2E.
For Aéroports de Paris (AdP), owner and operator of Paris CDG, and Air France, the aim of the trial is to test the processing speed and overall reliability of the Scan&Fly units. The trial is expected to start in March and FTE will keep you posted on how the units perform during the trial.
AdP has previously trialled self-service bag drop at Paris-Orly Airport alongside ALSTEF.
The FTE 'On the Ground' conference at FTE Global 2014, which will take place in Las Vegas from 24-26 September, will include a dedicated Baggage Advancements Workshop. In this session, senior representatives from airlines, airports and suppliers will explore how the industry can provide an all-encompassing and consistent baggage offer for passengers worldwide, and what impact the likes of home-printed and permanent bag tags will have on future baggage processes.
FTE Global 2014 will also include the 'Up in the Air' conference stream, an extensive exhibition of the latest passenger-focused solutions, the FTE Awards ceremony and an exciting social programme.
