Following a public tender, Bucharest National Airports Company (CNAB) has awarded Alstef Group an international terminal baggage handling system and screening upgrade project at Henri Coandă International Airport located in Otopeni, just north of Romania’s capital city, Bucharest.

The project will be completed over two years and includes 56 new check-in conveyors, 12 self-service bag drops, a new outbound sortation system with five new Standard 3 screening machines, two new make-up carousels, and a transfer connection to the domestic terminal. Alstef Group will also manage the civil works/HVAC etc associated with expansion to ensure a fully coordinated approach to the project phasing.

“This is our first project working with CNAB” states Thibault Chambon, Regional Sales Manager for the Alstef Group, “and we have also been awarded a five-year operations and maintenance contract beginning at the completion of the project” continues Thibault.

Henri Coandă International Airport is the largest and busiest airport in Romania and one of two airports serving Bucharest.

This is the first project in Romania for the Alstef Group which is expanding its presence throughout Eastern Europe with the recent award of a major upgrade project at neighboring Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport (Belgrade Airport) in Serbia.
