Sydney Airport has purchased four self-service bag drop units to help expedite the check-in process for Qantas passengers in Terminal 1 (T1). The airport bought the units from baggage handling technology developer ICM Airport Technics following a successful 12-month trial. In that time the four ICM Auto Bag Drop self-service units processed more than 125,000 items of luggage.

Richard Dinkelmann, managing director of ICM Airport Technics, said, “We are delighted that Sydney Airport has made the decision to purchase our Auto Bag Drop Units for the T1 International Terminal following a very successful pilot.

“These market leading self-service bag drop units not only deliver notable benefits to both airports and airlines, but they present passengers with a simpler and faster service for checking in their bags – it is very rewarding for us to see that Sydney Airport has experienced first-hand such improvements. This is another key milestone for bringing the Australian-developed Auto Bag Drop experience to international travel across the world.”
