Company Profile

  • Boarding Cards and Baggage Labels, Special Tags

    The complete package for airlines and airports:
    Since the beginning of the ATB, Hummel have produced Boarding Passes and Thermal Baggage Tags for its customers throughout the world. These products being a great opportunity to bring the airline’s corporate image to their passengers, the quality of the products is of utmost importance.

    In addition to the corporate image of our customers, the documents are an excellent platform for advertisement partners. Outstanding print quality can only be achieved on high-quality raw materials and by well experienced print experts.

    Optimal reading of the 2D barcode and a reliable performance in the printers is an imperative for airlines and airports, which we control through our constant quality management before and during production. Our products are tested on all current printers in our in-house laboratory. This helps with cost savings for our customers due to a smooth boarding process and minimal costs caused by lost or mishandled luggage.

    Our product range for airlines, airports and ground handling agents is completed by a variety of manual Tags for different purposes, such as Interline Tags, Limited Release Tags, Name Tags, Heavy Tags, DAA and others, but also Cargo Tags to mark pallets and ULD. Naturally, we also offer automated and manual AWB, Manual Tickets and other forms.


  • Up to date with developments such as

    Kiosk Rolls (CUSS), Tags for Self-Bag Drop and RFID Baggage Tags:

    Always close to the market, we develop and adapt our products to the latest demands. We were among the first companies to provide roll stock for CUSS terminals, available in different versions to fit with all current printer models. These can also be printed with 4-colour advertisements for further benefit.

    Automated Baggage Tags can be enhanced with different easy and cost-effective solutions to make Self-Bag Drop smooth and uncomplicated. The handling of the Self-Service Tag is improved to enable all passengers to use them without further complications.

    Since many years already, we implement RFID in voting pads for shareholder meetings, so RFID is nothing new to us. We produce RFID Baggage Tags on the latest equipment, all in compliance with IATA requirements, using the inlay of your choice or recommending an inlay according to your requirements.


  • Tickets for Rail, Ferry, Car Rental, Parking Tickets

    Tickets in ATB format are used for air transportation as well as transportation by train or ferry, in an automation initiative also some car rental companies have chosen this format for their car rental agreements. We also provide parking tickets for all common systems. As all of the stated products represent a certain value, we have worked with our customers to develop different security features to prevent forgery, copy or manipulation of the Ticket.

    Hummel offer a great choice of different options, these include invisible or thermochromic inks, fluorescent fibres, watermarks, guilloches, holograms, amongst others. Many of our customers use ATB Tickets with Ticket Covers, a product giving them sufficient space to display their Terms & Conditions as well as to place an advertisement.
