Kyzylorda Airport in Kazakhstan has awarded a contract to Alstef Group to design and deploy the baggage handling system (BHS) at its new terminal.

Under the contract, Alstef will be responsible for installing the outbound and inbound systems.

In a statement, the technology provider said: “The outbound system will feature seven-scale and induct check-in conveyors, along with a collector conveyor: an outbound conveyor system with Automatic Tag Readers (ATR integration), X-ray screening integration, a new screening room, and a make-up lateral.

“The inbound system will include a reclaim carousel with a feed line, fire doors, and an out-of-gauge roller deck.”

The BHS project will be completed next year.

Alstef will be tasked with the design, deployment and commissioning of the new equipment and technology.

Once completed, the new BHS system is expected to improve efficiency at the airport and facilitate travellers’ experience.

The new terminal at Kyzylorda Airport is being supported by funding from Bulat Utemuratov’s Foundation.

It is expected to double the airport’s capacity.

Last month, Alstef secured a BHS contract from Strasbourg Airport in France.

The contract scope included the addition of a new make-up carousel and the overhaul of the outbound system for oversized items.

Last year, Alstef received a contract to upgrade the international terminal baggage handling and screening system at Henri Coandă International Airport in Bucharest, Romania.
