Koltsovo to improve efficiency, traffic flow with equipment upgrades

Koltsovo Airport announced on Wednesday plans to upgrade and purchase new special equipment as part of its efforts to improve baggage handling efficiency in 2014.

The airport has, in recent months, said it will utilize a new low-floor apron passenger bus and three new passenger gangways in order to expedite the flow of passengers and their belongings in and out of the airport.

Additionally, new baggage handling equipment planned for use will help the airport improve the efficiency of its baggage services operations.

Last year, the airport purchased several state-of-the-art anti-icing machines to reduce weather-related flight delays. Koltsovo also increased its fleet of emergency vehicles by 49 trucks last year.
