Southwest Airlines – KCI Baggage Handling Structure

Play Video


Southwest has turned to Sprung for a number of baggage handling solutions over the years. For instance, as part of a major baggage handling revamp at Chicago Midway Airport, Southwest needed a cost-effective, high-performance interim baggage sorting facility in place. Later, it also needed to expand and improve its baggage handling facilities at Pennsylvania’s bustling Philadelphia International Airport.


At the Chicago Midway Airport, a durable, innovative Sprung structure was leased and erected by Southwest’s on-site contractor within just a few weeks of the order being placed. Later, this adaptable, tensioned membrane structure was purchased by the airline and relocated to the Baltimore/Washington International Airport to also serve as a baggage sorting facility.
