SITA bag drop solution installed in T1 at Stuttgart Airport

Air transport IT provider SITA has completed the installation of its Scan&Fly self-service bag drop solution in Terminal 1 (T1) at Stuttgart Airport in Germany. Passengers of the German low-cost carrier Eurowings will be the first to enjoy the service, which will enable them to check in and drop their bags in less than a minute, helping to alleviate congestion. Further units will be rolled out within Terminal 3 (T3) in the coming months.

Wolfgang Müller, chief operating officer, Stuttgart Airport, said, “SITA’s retro-fit solution was ideal, it utilizes our existing airport infrastructure so no additional terminal space was required. With Scan&Fly we look forward to fewer queues, happier passengers, and fast and safe bag drop.”

SITA’s common-use Scan&Fly solution is easy to retrofit, has a high-quality interface, and boasts a scanning arch which ensures only conveyable bags with a readable bag tag enter the baggage handling system.

Dave Bakker, SITA president, Europe, said, “Passengers want self-service and we know that they are happier at the steps of the journey where they have more choice and control in how they manage their trip. Retrofitting self-service bag drop is a quick and easy way to make this happen. In fact, our solution Scan&Fly allows more passengers to drop their baggage within the same check-in area, with less queuing and can increase terminal capacity by up to 60%. It is the perfect choice for airports – its plug-and-play design means it can be installed overnight onto existing airport check-in desks. It’s easy to use so passengers and airlines love it too.”
