The New Merkur by Materna and eKiosk

Aviation specialist Materna has extended its range of products for automated passenger handling. Materna now presents the prototype of a new self-service kiosk for automated baggage drop at airports.

At this year’s Aviation Forum in Hamburg, Germany, Materna is presenting its new retrofit kiosk Merkur for the first time.

Although the Merkur is designed for unmanned baggage handling, the check-in desks where it is installed can still be used for normal staffed check-in service.

The product launch is set for March 2016.

This self-service kiosk can be flexibly deployed, and fits in conveniently with existing conveyor systems at airports.

The system provides for the highest levels of security, is easy to operate, and can be integrated in the infrastructure of baggage handling halls.

Materna developed the kiosk together with partner company eKiosk, a supplier of complete solutions in the field of info terminals and kiosk systems.

In addition to printers, it also includes a scanning module, which recognises and checks any tags on the baggage.

Materna has been delivering solutions for automated passenger handling to airports and airlines for many years now. Their key focus is on self-service systems, such as those used for check-in, boarding, baggage handling, secure access and payment.

Over the years Materna has established an excellent reputation among its many customers which include Lufthansa, Germanwings, easyJet, Airberlin, Hamburg Airport, Vienna Airport, Gatwick Airport and Vilnius Airport.

Other customers, such as Emirates airline and airport operator dnata, are also to be found in Arab countries.

Merkur will be presenting at the Aviation Forum in Hamburg, Germany, from 10-11 November.

Materna is one of the most renowned suppliers of self service systems for airports and airlines in the world.
