Alstef Group has been awarded the contract to upgrade Strasbourg Airport's baggage handling system (BHS). 

The project involves adapting Strasbourg’s baggage screening systems to meet the latest EASA Standard 3.1 screening requirements. Alstef Group will add a new make-up carousel and upgrade the outbound system for over-size items, to improve the terminal layout and create more space. The project also includes relocation of eight check-in counters, modifications of two feed line connections to the inbound carousels and a comprehensive upgrade of the PLC (programmable logic controller)and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems.  

Following the two-year warranty period, Alstef Group will provide a four-year maintenance contract to help ensure the longevity of the equipment.  

“We are very pleased to have selected the Alstef Group tailor-made solution to modernise our baggage handling system,” said Strasbourg Airport CEO Renaud Paubelle. “We will also leverage Alstef Group's expertise to optimise implementation [of the new BHS] and reduce negative impacts on operations.” 

Strasbourg Airport serves the Alsace region of France and the European capital of Strasbourg, offering leisure and business flights throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. The city of Strasbourg hosts many European institutions and bodies, including the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, and the European Court of Human Rights.

Alstef Group designs, integrates, and supports automated turnkey solutions for the airport, intralogistics and parcel markets.
