Copenhagen International Airport in Denmark is set to deploy all available staff and equipment to ensure that a technical hitch with its baggage system, which delayed more than 50 flights, does not happen again.

A technical problem in the computer system that controls the baggage facility at Copenhagen International Airport delayed more than 50 flights and resulted in the misplacement of 3,000 pieces of baggage on 4-5 July 2009, airportnews.aero reports.

The airport is also working closely with airlines and handling companies to avoid further technical problems in the baggage system.
