Bombardier‘s INNOVIA APM 300 automated people mover (APM) system has begun service at Munich Airport linking Terminal 2 with its new satellite terminal located 400 metres away. The driverless vehicles will transport arriving and departing passengers underground via a dual-lane passenger transit system helping to increase capacity. Bombardier designed, built and commissioned all of the electrical and mechanical equipment, including the twelve APM vehicles.
