Materna to install bag-drop solution at Toronto Pearson International

LinkedIn +

Materna, a provider of self-service bag drop solutions for the aviation sector, has been awarded a contract to implement a new bag-drop installation at Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada.

Toronto Pearson is Canada’s biggest and busiest airport, welcoming 41 million passengers in 2015. Materna’s self-service bag-drop solution will enable airlines to automate the bag-drop process for already checked-in passengers. Travelers may print or download their travel documents at home or on their mobile device, and can then move straight to the baggage drop-off area when arriving at the airport, rather than standing in line. The interaction with the bag drop process is fast and user-friendly enabling passengers to move to the boarding gate with only a short stop.

To better support operations in North America, Materna has opened a new subsidiary in Toronto on October 1, 2016. One year ago, Materna opened a subsidiary in Orlando, Florida, following a similar contract at John Wayne Airport in California.
