BBC MAKES HISTORY WITH FLYTOGET!
March 9th 2021
The Norwegian airport express train, Flytoget, has entered into a contract with BBC to implement the contactless Tagomat® onboard all its airport express trains. As far as we know this will be the first permanent installation in the world of tag printing devices onboard a train, where you can print your bag-tag travelling at a speed of more than 200 km/h, says Thomas Ågren CFO in BBC.
After a successful trial during the summer of 2020 Flytoget decided to announce a tender to purchase tag printing devices to implement onboard the airport express trains. After a thorough evaluation process, we found the tender from BBC to be the most advantageous tender for us, says Nicolai Bryde Commercial Director in Flytoget.
The airport express train is a high-speed airport rail connecting Oslo Airport Gardermoen to Oslo Central Station and Drammen southwest of Oslo. The train departs every 10 minutes from Oslo S, every 20 minutes from Drammen and is operated by the company Flytoget AS. In 2019, Flytoget transported 6.8 million passengers.
Flytoget is one of the strongest brand names in Norway and has top 3 rankings on NCSB (Norwegian Consumer Satisfaction Barometer) 12 times since 2006, being number one 5 times.
