Sofia Airport has announced an Expression of Interest for the design, manufacture, supply, installation and commissioning of a new Baggage Handling System (BHS) at Terminal 2. It includes systems for both departing and arriving passengers. SOF Connect will accept proposals until July15.

The press statement says: “Based on latest EU and National standards and providing best in class passenger experience, the new BHS will allow for significant increase in capacity, security and efficiency for checked baggage.

“The innovative BHS will facilitate smart check-in process, online check-in and additional baggage reclaim belts in the arrivals area are also planned. Interested parties will be required to cover a period of 10 years for maintenance of the system.

The Baggage Handling System is the centrepiece of the transformation of the airport. The planned reconstruction also features more check-in counters, optimized security checks with enhanced capacity, completely new retail spaces, a whole redevelopment of dining and entertainment areas along with a major overhaul of the car park next to Terminal 2.
