Montreal introduces common use self bagdrops

Only four clicks needed to complete the bagdrop process

Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) and ALSTEF Canada announced the official inauguration today, at Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, of new generic self-bag-drop stations for passengers flying to the United States.

This new automated solution is quick and intuitive, with only four clicks needed to complete the bag-drop process. Passengers making use of the new system gain more control over their time and their airport experience.

James Cherry, President and Chief Executive Officer, ADM:

“The new self-serve system aims to enhance the user experience and make U.S.-bound passengers’ route through the airport terminal even more fluid.

“The system is very easy to use and has quickly been adopted by nearly 50% of passengers.

“We can proudly say that this self-serve system, usable by all airlines, is a world first.”

Mr. Pierre Marol, Chief Executive Officer of ALSTEF:

“These new drop-offs created by ALSTEF are the result of our continued innovation.

“This system is both intuitive and easy to use for passengers, and at the cutting-edge of technology to meet all U.S. Customs and Border Protection security requirements.”

The project, conducted jointly by ADM and ALSTEF, involved conversion of 8 of the 17 conventional bag-drop stations in the transborder area of the terminal.
