Hong Kong Airlines is to introduce self bag drop for passengers departing from Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).
Six self bag drop kiosks will be installed at Hong Kong Airlines counters at Aisle K at HKIA.
For the first two weeks, each passenger who uses the service will be presented with a gift as a token of gratitude for their support to the airline’s innovative initiatives.
During the trial run, the self bag drop service only applies to passengers with 1 checked bag. Passengers with multiple baggage will be able to use the service at a later date.
Airline staff will be on hand to assist passengers with the new service.
How it works:
Hong Kong Airlines will use the two-step method for self bag drop:
Step 1: passengers print the bag tag at a self-service kiosk and attach the bag tag to the bag
Step 2: passengers take the tagged bag to a staffed bag drop
