Self-service bag drop will help ensure that departures will now be smoother at Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) Airport and Helsinki Vantaa (Hel).
As a result of a new, time-saving self-service bag drop solution passengers will be able to drop baggage by themselves.
Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) and Helsinki Vantaa (Hel) airports have implemented a self-service bag drop system from the Norwegian company DSG Systems.
To use the self-service bag drop system:
- passengers print the bagtag at a kiosk and attach the bagtag to the bag
- they go to the Bagdrop counter for the airline they are flying with and place their bag on the conveyor belt
- they scan the baggage tag and follow the instructions on the screen
The check-in kiosks are located in the terminal and at the parking facilities. Also at a growing number of train stations in the region, meaning passengers can print their baggage tags before arriving at the airport.
Self-service bag drop is a fine new facility which is a step forward toward reducing the time spent in lines at the airport.
It looks like it is not a common use system as the passenger has to take the baggage to the airline they are flying with.
