HC Deb 13 April 1964 vol 693 cc22-3W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Minister of Aviation what would be the cost of instilling a circular luggage turntable at the civil airport at Aldergrove in County Antrim similar to those in use at West London Air Terminal and if he will make a statement about his plans to speed up the collection by passengers of their luggage from incoming aircraft.

Mr. Marten

About £3,000. Arrangements are already in hand to accelerate the mechanical baggage conveyor from 60 feet a minute to 100, and to provide an additional baggage collection area in the terminal building. The new baggage collection area will be separately fed by a roller conveyor and should greatly increase the baggage handling capacity of the airport.
