Manchester Airport lifts one-bag rule with Oracle

Antony Savvas

Manchester Airport is lifting its "one item of hand baggage" rule with the help of the Oracle Business Intelligence platform.

The airport has been granted permission by the Department for Transport (DFT) to lift the one item of hand baggage regulation from today.

It will be one of the first to relax security restrictions on the number of hand baggage items passengers are allowed to carry. The restriction, affecting all airports, had been in place since August 2006.

Airports have been able to apply for permission to lift the one-bag rule if they are able to demonstrate that passenger movements would not be affected by extra baggage and security checks.

Oracle's business intelligence system provides Manchester Airport's management team with interactive dashboards of flight, passenger and baggage movements.

The forecasting capabilities provided by Oracle business intelligence gives Manchester Airport the ability to cope with the extra pressure of screening additional bags by helping senior management identify future trends and to plan accordingly.

With this information, management can plan ahead with additional X-ray machines and extra staff weeks in advance.
