The new baggage handling infrastructure will be delivered and installed by Siemens Logistics.
Laila Odiņa, Chairperson of the Board of Riga Airport, said:

“The introduction of a new baggage handling system is the first step in preparing for the construction of the Airport's new terminal, which is expected to be completed by 2027 and will allow us to handle up to 12 million passengers a year in the future. With the construction of the new terminal, this baggage handling system will become part of the new automatic baggage handling system.”

The new baggage handling infrastructure for Riga Airport will be delivered, installed and integrated into the Airport systems by Siemens Logistics S.r.l., which won the Airport’s tender and signed a contract worth 4.43 million euros in Riga this week. The Airport will cover these investments from its investment budget.

The works for the new baggage handling system are to be completed in about a year.
