US Airways to upgrade baggage handling system at Philadelphia airport.


US Airways is to begin a USD2.7m upgrade of its baggage handling system at Philadelphia International Airport.

The airline is hoping to begin construction in early March 2004, with work to be completed in time for the start of the peak summer travel season. The project will significantly improve the airline's baggage handling process and reduce the number of mishandled bags coming into the airport's B, C and International terminals.

The upgrade is currently pending final approval by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Philadelphia International Airport.
