The BHS will support full self-service (self-bag drop) at pre-check-in for a flight as well as allow check-in agent-assisted service.

Alstef Group has secured a contract from Sofia Airport in Bulgaria to supply, install, and maintain a new baggage handling system (BHS).

The deployment of the passenger baggage management solution under the BGN20m ($11m) contract is said to align with the pace of traffic rebound and the airport’s development plans.
