Vienna Airport

From new construction, retrofits, and expansions to a check-in right in the city of Vienna and the logistics integration of the City Airport Train baggage handling, the project in Vienna involved all aspects of baggage handling system planning. The debate with the architects when it came to areas and space for the baggage handling system was also challenging.

Construction at airports is never finished, and suisseplan is already involved in developing the next stage of the master plan for Vienna Airport and is developing expansion concepts for the baggage system.
