The reconfiguration and renovation of the Great Hall in the Jeppesen Terminal at Denver International Airport will include the largest self-bag drop (SBD) installation in the world.
The US subsidiary of Germany-based Materna is providing 176 hybrid SBD units and 40 common-use self-service (CUSS) check-in kiosks, for completion by 2020. “Some major airlines are already undergoing integration,” Materna announced in a statement on 10 September.
Materna received the contract from Great Hall Partners (GHP), which is the public-private partnership responsible for the USD650 million, 42-month overhaul.
The hybrid solution for Denver blends a traditional agent counter with a SBD unit and scanner portal, positioned over the conveyor for scanning bag tags. Overweight or outsized baggage is rejected.
