Leonardo baggage automation systems: always in safe hands

15 June 2020

Delicate and valuable. Unique and irreplaceable. Essential for work and pleasure. Whether it’s a Stradivarius violin, a Murano glass chandelier, a Ming vase, or – more commonly – a suitcase for the holidays, Leonardo’s baggage handling systems treat every item of airport luggage with the maximum care.

Our automation systems have been developed through 40 years’ experience of turnkey projects created for major high-traffic international airports around the world. Rome Fiumicino, Zurich, Geneva, Paris Orly, Lyon, Mulhouse, Kuwait City, Hong Kong, and recently Frankfurt, are just some of the success stories where technological solutions have made Leonardo a global leader in the design and build turnkey Baggage Handling systems.

The key to many of these successes lies with our MBHS® (Multisort Baggage Handling System), a cross-belt system that positions Leonardo as the first and one of the few companies with the know-how to adapt this technology to the logistics of baggage handling within the airport infrastructure.

MBHS®, which complies with IATA regulations and the stringent requirements set by airport systems specialists BNP Associates, provides the best possible handling performance on all objects, including fragile items and those with non-standard wheels, protruding straps, high-friction surfaces or irregular shapes. All this is achieved with substantial savings in energy consumption, management and maintenance costs, while delivering excellent space optimisation. It also features total integration with overall airport management IT systems, from check-in through high-security monitoring to baggage collection.

MBHS® means turnkey design, effectiveness, reliability, security, customisation, flexibility, integration, and sustainability.

Leonardo baggage automation. Ready for the encore.
