The need is pointed out for a careful consideration of the specific baggage problem and for a systematic search for the most cost-effective solution. Overall performance goals which should be achieved are listed, as well as the special needs for handling bags from arriving aircraft. Three of five goals for the system to handle outgoing baggage deal with check-in position locations. A system to process baggage through a domestic terminal is also considered. Airport management, working with the airline tenants must make some policy decisions before implementation of a baggage handling plan. These policy decisions relate to the check-in location, and to the gate layout. The importance is also noted of making equipment selections and the manpower needed to operate and maintain the equipment. The possibilities of future growth must also be considered in baggage handling plans.
