We’re excited to be the first airport in the country to offer our passengers and airlines state-of-the-art technology, that will ease the process of air travel. Our goal is to use technology to improve the passenger experience and to make airport operations more efficient, -BIAL’s Chief Operating Officer, Javed Malik
To use the self-drop baggage handling system, you need to check-in and print the boarding pass and baggage tags at any of the 32 self check-in kiosks available throughout the airport, Once tagged, the passengers have to then scan their boarding passes at the bag drop machine to initiate the process. The machine then measures, weighs, scans and automatically feeds the luggage into the baggage handling system. In case the luggage exceeds the weight limit set by an airline, the passengers will be directed to a “hybrid counter” to complete the check-in process and make payments for the excess baggage.
