Vanderlande Industries completed the first part of the baggage handling system for Edmonton International Airport (EIA) in Alberta, Canada. The completion of this first phase allowed for a successful opening of the doors to the new US Departures expansion on February 11, 2012.
Passengers flying to the US can now enjoy a speedier and easier experience in the new terminal, which is four times the size of the previous US departures area.
Henk de Groot, VP of operations at Vanderlande Industries said: "Vanderlande Industries is proud that Edmonton International Airport chose to use our BAXORTER technology which provides a reliable baggage tracking system meeting the needs of both the airport and CATSA. It also supports Edmonton International Airport’s vision of being a world-class airport. The Edmonton Airport Authority also embraced sustainability as a core value and chose Vanderlande Industries’ GREENVEYOR, a conveyor with many operational environmental benefits."
