Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport – BHS Upgrade and BAGXONE AGV

Outbound BHS for Terminal 2, transfer connection to Terminal 1 plus the addition of a BAGXONE AGV for – by exception – screening to departures transfer.

About this Project

  • Location: Belgrade, Serbia

This project, awarded by Vinci in December 2021, underwent installation in multiple phases, primarily focusing on completing the baggage handling system in the new Terminal 2 while establishing vital connections with the existing Terminal 1 baggage system.


A notable innovation is the integration of the BAGXONE Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV), providing seamless connectivity between the screening reconciliation zone and the departures make-up carousels. In rare instances, the AGV can also efficiently redirect baggage from the reconciliation zone to the baggage destruction zone.

The on-site work, initiated in June 2022, commenced with the first departure phase in the southern area of Terminal 2. This phase encompassed the installation of 28 check-in conveyors and counters, outbound screening and sortation systems, make-up carousels, out-of-gauge lines, and roller tables. 

Simultaneously, phase 3 concentrated on establishing a two-way connection between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, integrating essential systems and installing 50 conveyors. The final departures phase focused on the dedicated transfer line, comprising 13 conveyors designed for efficient baggage transfer. The entire system is controlled via the Alstef Group BAGWARE – a proprietary software suite providing Sortation Allocation Control (SAC) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).

The commissioning of the BAGXONE AGV was completed in early June, underscoring the agility and efficiency of AGV-based baggage handling solutions in managing low throughput baggage logistics while optimizing airport floor space.
