Spain’s Palma de Mallorca Airport has awarded a contract to Siemens Logistics to upgrade and optimise its baggage handling system.

Under the contract, Siemens Logistics will aid the airport operator Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea (Aena) in adhering to international baggage screening specifications.

The company will integrate the new screening units and install six of its tilt-tray sorter units (VarioSort TTS), 60 check-ins counters and 79 baggage carousels.

The VarioSort tilt-tray sorter (TTS) features a reliable design.

Work will be carried out in phases to ensure that airport operations are not disturbed. Siemens expects the work to be completed in five years.

Siemens Logistics CEO Michael Reichle said: “As a proven partner for integration projects, we are pleased to continue our successful cooperation with Aena.
