Siemens Logistics has been selected to deliver the baggage handling system for the new Noida International Airport (NIA) near Delhi, India.

Under this contract, Siemens Logistics will design, supply, install, commission and maintain the baggage handling system for the airport’s Terminal 1.

The opening of Noida International Airport is scheduled to take place in four phases, starting with the first terminal, which will initially handle 12 million passengers per year and can be expanded to accommodate up to 30 million passengers.

Siemens Logistics will supply its high-performance VarioTray conveyor technology to transport baggage quickly and reliably within this new facility. As the VarioTray system is modular, it can be easily expanded to meet future growth when the terminal expands.
