Guam’s AB Won Pat International Airport Authority has announced plans to install a new baggage handling system at Guam International Airport.

The $26m system will feature three new pods with automated screening technology and aims to not only double the baggage handling capacity, but also free up space in the airport for passenger movement.

"The airport is one of Guam’s most critical facilities."

The project is being funded by the US Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration.

Governor of Guam Eddie Bazza Calvo said: "The airport is one of Guam’s most critical facilities. It’s the first place our visitors see and it is the last place we have to leave a lasting impression with them.

"This new system is further proof that our federal partners have faith in our ability to move these projects forward and the credibility to be transparent with critical federal funds."

The airport’s operator, Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics, will be replacing the current baggage handling system with an upgraded state-of-the-art system and the installation is scheduled to be completed by 2016.
