A smooth, reliable and timely baggage handling is one of the main success criteria for airports. In this talk we give an overview of the baggage handling process, and discuss various optimization problems, including: The chute allocation problem, the baggage belt assignment problem, and the baggage transfer problem. The baggage transfer problem has to assign the baggage from each arriving aircraft to an infeed area into the airport infrastructure. The objective is to minimize the number of missed bags.
