Materna ips has successfully installed a trial version of its latest Self Bag Drop system at Cork Airport in Ireland.

The airport's demand included a new system which connects to the DCS (departure control system) ASTRAL from Aerlingus.

Thanks to smooth integration into the existing conveyor system Materna installed a state-of-the-art bag drop kiosk designed by EVANS Airport Solutions using the Materna CUSS application.

As an additional benefit and for safety reasons the bags are scanned while passing a customized scanner bridge.

All components are using modern technology and fulfil valid security standards.
