About this Project

Glidepath was awarded the contract to design, supply, install and commission the Baggage Handling System for the new CIAL Integrated Terminal Project.  The system comprised of 52 new check-in conveyors and an un-manned self-service bag drop feeding into a screening and sortation system located on the mezzanine level of the baggage make-up hall.  International and Domestic baggage are separated and screened before the automated sortation system delivers the bags to one of five make-up carousels.


Domestic interline and transfer lines are used for International-Domestic and Domestic-International connections and two oversize departures systems provide methods for handling the high volume of ski and snowboard baggage encountered at Christchurch.  Three domestic arrivals carousels and one international arrival carousel are provided for inbound passengers..
