SPPAL to continue maintaining BHS at Mexico City Int. Airport
27 February 2017
Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) has received an order from Mexico City International Airport to continue maintaining the baggage handling systems reliably and efficiently. With the extension of the comprehensive contract, the company remains responsible for all preventive and corrective services of the systems in Terminals 1 and 2. Siemens is making a crucial contribution both to the smooth operation of the airport and to passenger satisfaction. Around 40 million passengers passed through the international hub in 2016, making it the busiest airport in Mexico and the second busiest in Latin America. It offers direct flights to 118 destinations worldwide. Siemens installed major parts of the baggage handling systems in Mexico City and has been the tried and trusted service partner of the airport operator since 2008. A SPPAL team of 68 engineers, mechanics and electricians concentrates on preventive maintenance to avoid system downtimes and service interruptions. This also maximises the length of the service lives of the systems. If faults occasionally occur despite the preventive measures, the qualified service team can rectify them quickly on-site. SPPAL has established itself as a technology and service partner for airports and airlines all over the world. Its successful track record includes long-term operation and maintenance contracts at about 40 airports, where customers benefit from a comprehensive portfolio of modular and customisable technical services.
