Passenger Terminal Today - Hazel King
Glidepath Limited, now trading as Alstef Group, has been selected to supply, install and commission the new baggage handling system at Princess Juliana International Airport (PJIA), the main airport on the Caribbean Island of Sint Maarten.
The project is part of a major national recovery and resilience program managed by the World Bank to repair and rebuild the terminal following extensive damage caused to the airport by Hurricane Irma in 2017.
The baggage handling system (BHS) replacement includes an outbound sortation system with 22 check-in locations, 12 self-serve bag drops, two in-line Standard 3 CT x-ray machines, a manual encode lane and automatic sortation to three makeup carousels controlled by Alstef Group’s proprietary Bagsort Lite software. The new inbound system will comprise three new horizontal carousels with feed lines.
