Baggage Handling System at the YYC

Baggage Handling System at the YYC

To ensure that passengers at YYC, one of Canada’s busiest airports, provides the highest quality experience for its passengers, it is important that the Baggage Handling Systems (BHS) in both the International Terminal and Domestic operate as one system to provide seamless connections for baggage between domestic, international and transborder flights.

With the new International Terminal completed and in operation for over a year, and with over 16 million passengers (and rising) being processed per year at the airport, The Calgary Airport Authority  is working with YYC and Crisplant (a leading innovator of baggage handling systems) to update the Domestic terminal with the faster and more energy-efficient baggage movement systems already in use in the International Terminal.

CTV recently featured the BHS and what it is capable of, check it out here: https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1314757

A Place for Everyone!

Construction on the new Jasper Place Transit Centre in Edmonton has started supporting the City’s vision for growth and enhanced passenger experience.  Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) sees upwards of 400,000 riders per day, and is an important way for Edmontonians to connect. The new facility will have bright, comfortable waiting areas designed to accommodate more people. The old brick building on the northwest corner of the transit centre is to be demolished and a new, smaller facility will take its place and will feature integrated landscaping, bike parking, and seating.
