SITA acquires self-service bag-drop manufacturer Type22

Air transport IT provider SITA has today (December 2) announced the acquisition of Dutch-based self-service bag-drop developer Type22.

The acquisition will strengthen SITA’s end-to-end technology solutions by adding Type22’s self-service bag-drop portfolio, including its Scan&Fly and Drop&Fly solutions.

Francesco Violante, CEO of SITA, said, “SITA has been providing its Self BagDrop solution since 2010, with several successful deployments worldwide. According to SITA’s 2015 Airport IT Trends Survey, 62% of passengers will use self-service bag-drop by 2017. Recognizing the tremendous potential in the market made acquiring Type22 a logical next step that will make us leaders in self-service bag-drop integrated with common-use systems. The addition of Type22’s product portfolio and expertise will provide SITA’s customers with automated self-service bag-drop solutions that are perfect for both new airport terminals, as well as retrofitted into existing desk environments.”

Roel Reijnen, managing director of Type22, said, “At Type22 we have been entirely focused on self-service bag-drop solutions since 2011 and our team has the technical experience as well as a keen understanding of the needs of the customer. With an established strong customer base in Europe and Asia, we look forward to continued growth in these and other markets, adding to the SITA success story.”

SITA will continue to develop Type22’s products and will provide support for all of the company’s existing customers. Members of Type22’s staff will remain located in Delft, in the Netherlands.
