Installation of new passenger hold baggage screening machines at Riga Airport

In September two new machines for screening of hold baggage are being installed at Riga International Airport. The installation of the machines for screening of hold baggage is a mandatory requirement of the European Commission. In accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 185/2010, outdated baggage screening devices must be replaced.

Works are done in cooperation with the company Logan Teleflex Ltd. The project provides for the new machines to be integrated into the existing baggage conveyor.

This February the board of Riga International Airport approved the results of a restricted tender procedure for the purchase of two new EDS machines and awarded the contract to an association formed by SIA Saint Tech and Gate Technologies Ltd for a total amount of 1 230 900.00 EUR (before VAT). This amount is part a State subsidy and part assets of the airport, including the security charges collected from the passengers.

Until the end of November 2012, during installation of the machines, passengers will have to reserve more time for checking in their hold baggage. In order to complete the necessary formalities in time, we request the passengers to arrive at the airport two hours at the latest before their flight.
