Siemens receives upgrade contract for Munich Airport Siemens Logistics has received an order to upgrade the baggage handling system in Terminal 2 and its satellite building at the Franz Josef Strauss Airport in Munich. By integrating innovative screening units, Siemens supports the customer to ensure that international specifications for baggage checking are met to the highest degree, and to continue to successfully manage the ever-increasing number of passengers. The customer is the “Terminal 2 Gesellschaft”, a joint subsidiary of Munich Airport and Lufthansa. This upgrade to the current safety and security regulations for baggage handling, which require explosives detection systems based on Standard 3 of the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC), calls for replacement of the X-ray equipment in the baggage handling system. Siemens is also implementing screening units of the latest generation that provide high-resolution 3D-imaging and enhanced scanning quality.
