Bombardier’s INNOVIA APM 300 will enter service on 26 April 2016 at Munich Airport. The automated people mover connecting Terminal 2 by an underground tunnel to a new satellite building was inaugurated on 22 April 2016. Designed and built by Bombardier, it will increase passenger capacity. They will also supply nine years of operation and maintenance services for the APM.
Germar Wacker, President, Mainline and Metros, Central and Eastern Europe region (CEE) at Bombardier Transportation, said:
“Bombardier has extensive global experience in the design, build and supply, as well as operation and maintenance, of driverless transit systems. Our modern mobility solutions for passenger transfers are in successful operation at airports all over the world. The latest generation of INNOVIA APM 300 technology meets the high quality and service standards of the five-star Munich Airport and it will further optimise the transportation of passengers there reliably and efficiently.”
Bombardier INNOVIA APM 300 Capacity
The INNOVIA APM 300 is flexible and reliable – a 700m long transport system delivers shorter transport times at the airport by increasing capacity. The APM shuttles passengers between Terminal 2 and the satellite building in less than a minute, meaning that up to 10,900 passengers can be transported an hour in each direction.
