Geneva Airport Expands Self Bag Drop Availability

ScanFly_-Self-Bag-Drop-from-Type22_at-GVAGeneva Airport has expanded its self bag drop (SBD) facilities to further improve passenger experience and increase check-in capacity.
Eighteen months after the introduction of SBD Geneva Airport has doubled the number of Scan&Fly units available to passengers flying with SWISS and six other Star Alliance airlines.
Jacques Morgenegg, Project Manager landside at Geneva Airport commented: “Passengers are demanding technology like Scan&Fly. They want to be in control over their journey and be part of the process. That – together with capacity constraints – is why Geneva Airport installed Scan&Fly 18 months ago. We are very happy with the successful results and the good passenger acceptance.”
Passengers who have not yet checked in prior to arrival at the airport can first check-in and print their bag tag at a kiosk before continuing to Scan&Fly to drop-off their baggage. Passengers who already have a boarding pass can proceed directly to Scan&Fly.
Mr Morgenegg added: “Geneva Airport selected the solution from Type22 because it offers the possibility of a combined Self Bag Drop process. It is clear that we have made the right decision. Approximately 50% of our passengers use Scan&Fly to print a bag tag and drop their baggage, while the other half uses Scan&Fly for bag-drop only.” For now, seven Star Alliance airlines are using Scan&Fly: SWISS, Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines, Austrian, Brussels Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines and Tap Portugal but Mr Morgenegg says common-use self bag drop is the airport’s next aim.
