Baggage carts at Vancouver International Airport get high-performance upgrade

  • Print

VANCOUVER - Vancouver International Airport has rolled out a fleet of "new and improved" baggage carts — and a slick video to promote them.

Sporting a "sleek, upright, ergonomic design," the 3,000 carts feature major upgrades, the airport says.

They're nine kilograms lighter than the old model. A new handbrake makes them safer. And the wheels are made of "dual composite rubber for better grip and durability," according to the airport.

"Precision bearings make for better manoeuvrability."

The high-performance carts are free to use terminal-wide, as the old ones were.
