Tokyo’s Narita International Airport will be introducing self-service bag drop units at the airport with the signing of a new contract with ICM Airport Technics.
The airport will install 72 automated bag drop units in the airport, ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
The units will be progressively rolled out across all four terminals, offering multi-lingual and user friendly-features that will improve the efficiency of check-in and bag drop times for passengers across multiple airlines.
This is ICM’s first foray into the Japan, with further significant developments in Japan to be announced in the coming months.
Australia-based ICM Airport Technics, which was acquired by Spanish IT solution provider Amadeus in June, also has operations in the UK, France, Singapore, Japan and the US.
It has provided more than 1,100 ABD units to 39 airport terminals across the globe, which have collectively processed more than 80 million bags.
