Paris CDG partners with Cofely for latest bag drop trial


Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport’s trial of the uDrop

Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport’s trial of the uDrop solution follows Aéroports de Paris’ pilots of bag drop solutions from Type22 and Phase 5 Technology.

Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport has started another self-service bag drop trial, this time alongside Cofely Airport Services, which has supplied the airport with its uDrop solution, which can be configured to offer either a one- or two-step process.

Aéroports de Paris is working with various suppliers to help identify the solution that best suits its requirements. As we reported in February, four Scan&Fly self-service bag drop units were installed at Paris CDG in a separate pilot, while Phase 5 Technology has also previously supplied a system for a trial programme at Paris-Orly Airport.

Referring to the latest trial, Cofely Airport Services Vice President Pierre Loyer said: “Our goal with this trial is to improve our passengers’ experience and provide a solution the airport is comfortable using”. He added: “It takes only about 30-40 seconds per passengers to use; it’s very quick.”

Loyer also explained that he sees bag drop as the “next logical step toward passenger empowerment”. “It increases check-in capacity without any terminal building extension and improves the passenger experience,” he added.
