Studies For and Application of Mechanical Systems at Paris-Nord Airport 700261
This paper is intended to describe the electromechanical baggage handling and sorting systems with which the ROISSY-en-FRANCE Terminal 1 will be equipped when it goes into service in 1973. Since the terminal will accommodate 9 million passengers each year, the problems of handling a heavy load of baggage traffic merited extensive planning of facilities and careful choice of equipment. Therefore special project and development studies on these systems were conducted by the Equipment Department of the Paris Airport Authority Engineering Division. This work and the systems evolving from it are meticulously reported here.
