Denver International Airport implements Materna's self-bag drop

Denver International Airport (DEN) has equipped ticket counters with the world´s largest installation of self-service equipment as part of the ongoing renovation of the airport, the company said.

DEN and the company Great Hall Builders, which was founded for the purpose of the renovation, have selected the solution from self-service specialist Materna US. Materna´s self-bag-drop solution gives the airport the highest level of flexibility and security in passenger handling, helping to handle the tremendous growth in passenger traffic.

The implementation of the Materna self-bag-drop systems is part of the USD 650 million Denver International Airport´s (DEN) Great Hall project that is now underway. As part of the planned redevelopment of DEN´s Jeppesen Terminal, Materna has been commissioned to equip the world´s second largest airport by land area with extensive self-service equipment by 2020.

Materna´s self-bag-drop solution comprises a classic agent counter combined with a self-bag-drop unit and scanner portal positioned over the conveyor to scan baggage tags, as well as numerous other features. The scanner unit also ensures safe baggage handling processes by only accepting baggage of the correct size and weight.

As a leading IT service provider, Materna employs more than 2,000 people around the world and generated sales of 254 million euros in 2017. Materna covers the entire service spectrum of a full-service provider in the premium segment: from consultation and implementation through to operations.
