Bagflow, Vanderlande’s end-to-end baggage logistics concept, has been chosen as the winner of the inter airport Europe Excellence Awards in the interFuture Special Award category.
The inter airport Europe Excellence Awards acknowledge the aviation industry’s best solution focused technologies that help to develop the market. The interFuture Special Award category rewards visionary new ideas, products and services that help to build a platform on which to define and create the airport of the future.
By establishing an integrated approach to the total bag process – from the bag drop right through to the aircraft – Bagflow enables airports to handle more bags in the same footprint, optimize resource use, and keep costs under control. The award was voted for by the international airport community, and Vanderlande was formally presented with the prize during the opening and awards ceremony on October 8.
Vanderlande board member and executive vice president airports Andrew Manship accepted the award on behalf of the company. He said, “Winning in this category is confirmation that we not only understand the challenges facing the aviation industry, but are able to define solutions that help it surpass them.”
