The new check-in area in the terminal building at Montréal-Trudeau Airport delivers an improved passenger experience with its 16 new self-bag-drop units, positioned as a self-bag-drop island.

Utilising a two-step process, passengers can now print bag tags at the check-in kiosk and move directly to a self-bag-drop unit, decreasing processing times and therefore enhancing the passenger experience.

The innovative Air.Go solution from Materna enables Montréal-Trudeau Airport to achieve more effective passenger handling and is a key step in handling the challenges of rapidly growing passenger throughput.
