Geneva International Airport in Switzerland has awarded Logan Teleflex an £80,000 ($123,386) contract to supply an advanced out-of-gauge (OOG) baggage handling system.

Equipped with two 90-degree lines with a modular chain conveyor, the OOG system has been designed for all airlines operating from the airport's Terminal 1.

The system is designed to maximise baggage capacity and throughput when OOG bags are transported along the various conveyor lines.

The OOG system will include 35m of 1m-wide conveyor belt, 90m of 1.2m-wide conveyor belt, and 1.2m-wide belt curves with a special radius of 5m in order to avoid bags becoming jammed because of their size.
