Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands has begun installation of a baggage transport system known as Backbone.

The €800m ($1.1796bn) project aims to increase the facility’s baggage handling capacity to 70 million items in the future.

The airport signed a contract with Vanderlande Industries and IBM for the new integrated system, which will link the airport’s west, E, D and south baggage basements.

Two rows of check-in desks in departure hall 2 will be closed from May 2011 to September 2012 to facilitate the completion of the work.

Work on the project is scheduled to begin in March 2010, and is expected to be complete by 2013.
