The airport´s demand included a new system which connects to the DCS (departure control system) ASTRAL from Aerlingus.

Thanks to smooth integration into the existing conveyor system Materna installed a state-of-the-art bag drop kiosk designed by EVANS Airport Solutions using the Materna CUSS application.

As an additional benefit and for safety reasons the baggage is scanned while passing a customized scanner bridge.

All components use modern technology and fulfil valid security standards.
