Gatwick Airport is the first airport worldwide to introduce kiosk payment for self bag drop systems so as to simplify baggage check-in for its customers. Materna recently has been awarded the contract for this and will install 50 systems at Gatwick Airport starting in April 2015.
Materna’s self bag drop system comes with an intuitive graphical user interface so that passengers can drop off their luggage very quickly and easily. Its solution is based on the IATA CUSS standard and also supports the new CUWS definition (Common Use Web Services). Visitors at PTE will be able to test this service for themselves.
