MATERNA has successfully installed a trial version of its latest self-service bag-drop system at Cork Airport in Ireland.
The airport’s demand included a new system that connects to the ASTRAL departure control system (DCS) 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 its CUSS application.
As an additional benefit and for safety reasons, the bags are scanned while passing a customised scanner bridge.
All components use modern technology and fulfill valid security standards.
Cork Airport is the international gateway to the south of Ireland and is the country’s second busiest airport after Dublin Airport, which is also part of the DAA Group of Irish state-owned airports.
Cork Airport manages an average of 7,000 passengers a day, rising to 15,000 during the peak season and up to 60 aircraft movements a day. An average of 2.4m passengers use Cork Airport every year, flying to more than 50 destinations across Europe.
