Montréal-Trudeau Airport installs self-service bag drop


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.

Montréal-Trudeau Airport (YUL) has installed automated baggage handling from Materna intelligent passenger solutions (ips), as the airport prepares for increases in passenger numbers. A total of 16 self-bag-drop units are now in operation at the airport.

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.


Join the baggage innovation hub for the air transport industry – low-cost, effective and productive technology realisation

Last year the FTE Baggage Innovation Working Group went from an idea to a membership of nearly 400, delivered a proof of concept, built an airport lab network and ran a face-to-face meeting alongside FTE Global in Las Vegas. Following the successful launch of the initiative, FTE is introducing the expanded BIWG for 2022. The working group brings together the most innovative and progressive baggage supply chain companies, airlines and airports from across the industry to provide a unique platform for the development of new techniques, technologies and business models to deliver tangible change in the baggage sector. It is the industry’s best networking platform for those serious about baggage.

The Baggage Innovation Working Group meets every six weeks, and is led by our industry captains including Andrew Price, Head of Baggage Transformation, FTE; Jason Odey Director, Global Baggage Excellence, Air Canada; Kevin Kleist, Emerging Trends Advisor, Southwest Airlines; Darin Juby, Director Baggage Services, Greater Toronto Airports Authority; and Idar Sørgjerd Manager, Baggage Handling Service, Technical Infrastructure & Innovations Avinor, who set the high-level agenda for each BIWG meeting. The next BIWG call will take place on 16 February, 15:00 CET and will look into the trends for the year ahead and conclusions from our latest POC around reclaim optimisation. The POC aims to develop a tool that can be used to automatically allocate baggage reclaim belts based on the arrival patterns of aircraft and their baggage loads.

Members who have already signed up for 2022 also include SITA, Collins Aerospace, Amadeus, Brock Solutions, and Owens Group. Interested in joining? Find out more and contact us for more information on our low-cost membership options.
