CANADA. Security and baggage tracing service provider Safe Bag has captured a five-year contract at Vancouver Airport, starting from 1 May.
The integrated service for travellers will include luggage wrapping and tracing, known as the ‘Premium Package’, travel goods and weigh and save.
Vancouver is the second largest airport in Canada after Toronto Pearson, recording over 22 million passengers in 2016. Traffic in January and February 2017 increased by +6.8% compared to the same period last year. Vancouver is Safe Bag’s second location in Canada after securing business at Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in June 2016.
Safe Bag CEO Alessandro Notari said: “We plan to continue growing in North America. After entering in Montréal last June, we realised that this market has a huge potential and that we speak the same language as our airport partners.”
Safe Bag Chairman Rudolph Gentile commented: “Entering Vancouver confirms that our policy of aggregating small, local competitors is a winner; our range of products and services is, by now, a distinctive feature and an opportunity to create value for both our airport partners and for small local competitors.”
