ADB Safegate Airport Systems has signed a five-year implementation and support agreement for a baggage reconciliation system (BRS) at King Khalid International Airport.
The contract was signed in partnership with Saudi Arabian Trading and Construction Company (SATCO), a leading gate solutions provider and build-transfer-operate (BTO) specialist, and a key member of the renovation project of Terminals 3 and 4 at the Riyadh airport.
The BRS from ADB Safegate will be installed in the recently renovated terminals. Due to open in spring 2021, they will serve up to 40 million passengers over the next five years. The solution will help reduce mishandling of baggage and minimize the cost of repatriating the bags, while improving security of baggage operations and overall tracking visibility from check-in to collection at destination. It is expected to improve the airport’s compliance with international standards such as IATA Resolution 753.
