Passenger Terminal Today - Elizabeth Baker
Paris Aéroport (Groupe ADP) plans to deploy more than 100 of Amadeus’s self-service Auto Bag Drop (ABD) units at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports to deliver a smoother passenger experience.
The deployment is intended to help the company meet the recovery in air travel demand by reducing passenger queues. Amadeus states that self-service bag drops with these machines take 37 seconds on average, which will also increase the airports’ passenger handling capacity. These 100 self-service machines add to 360 such machines already in operation, meaning passengers can choose self-serve bag drop at more than half of the check-in service points across Paris’s airports.
