Studies For a Baggage Handling System for an Airport

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Airports & Aviation

Project Description

Faced with the global increase in air traffic and the saturation of its facilities, the Emirate of Dubai planned to expand its Al Maktoum International Airport (AMIA) and turn it into the world’s largest hub, with a capacity of 200 million passengers per year (capacity of 120 million for the initial phase).

We were called on by the client, a major player in the airport sector, to deliver contracting support for the Baggage Handling System (BHS).
We presented several integrated technical solutions with detailed information about the intended technologies and their implementation based on functional requirements: volumes allocated for implementing the BHS, baggage flow requirements, availability and reliability goals. We also put forward architectural proposals for baggage supervision and flow. The volume and surface of each integrated solution was compared as well as the system performance levels.

As a result, a model layout was proposed for optimised baggage sorting in terms of quantity of handling equipment, surface area and volume (depending on location of BHS), number of vehicles and baggage travel distance.
