Faster Baggage in Peoria
A recent study shows that Greater Peoria Regional Airport passengers are now claiming their bags in only 8-1/2 minutes on average.
Now the airport authority has introduced a plan to encourage baggage personnel to serve customers even faster.
The plan involves timing airline crews on randomly chosen flights. Each week, the fastest airline team is then rewarded with coupons for free lunches at area fast food restaurants.
Plans are also in place to add a new baggage carousel and ramp.
