Pteris Global

Pteris Global has deployed its baggage handling system at Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport’s new terminal.

The new system, which handles 3,000 bags a day, streamlines the baggage drop-off process by allowing passengers to process their luggage at a single location without having to go to different bag drops for domestic, trans-border and international destinations.

BHS scans every piece of baggage, some items twice, using a Pteris Global system housed in the massive baggage-handling facility, which is located below the arrivals area.

The airport’s new baggage system is much more energy efficient than the old system, because the new computer controls ensure belts run only when necessary, compared with the previous system, which ran belts full time, according to Pteris Global.

The system’s key benefits are its ability to identify and overcome capacity and bottleneck constraints, and its security measures, which offer low operating and maintenance costs.

Pteris Global CEO Oon Chong Howe said the baggage systems demonstrated exceptional capabilities in managing the rigorous demands of airport baggage handling while creating a seamless passenger experience.

"We have been informed by the local airport consultant in Winnipeg that this is the first time that bags reached the arrival carousels before passengers arrive at the arrival hall," Howe said.

Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport opened its new terminal on 30 October 2011.

The terminal was designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects in collaboration with Stantec.
