Materna to unveil its latest self-service bag-drop system
25 February 2015
Dortmund, Germany-based Materna GmbH will unveil its latest self-service bag-drop system, which now includes a payment feature, at the 2015 Passenger Terminal Expo (PTE) taking place on 10 to 12 March in Paris, France. The company will be conducting live demonstrations of the latest common-use bag drop with different types of kiosks and scanning modules at stand 3050. The new payment function enables passengers to use credit cards to pay the excess baggage fee directly at the self-service bag-drop kiosk or via a mobile payment device handled by a floorwalker. Materna has been awarded a contract to install 50 self-service bag-drop systems with kiosk payment 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 (Common Use Web Services) definition.
