    On a typical day our baggage colleagues work with partner organisations to handle 6.5 tonnes in baggage, processing 11,500 bags per hour, across conveyor belts longer than the length of 40 runways.
    More than 2.8 million bags travel through our airport during the Christmas period. Our baggage system is a large and intricate structure that ensures all bags arrive safely and on time. As part of this team you'll  use knowledge, skills and creative thinking to make sure our passengers travel happily, on time, with their bags.
