IATA are predicting that home printed luggage labels could soon be bought into airports in order to decrease queues and crowding at check-in. Like many cruises, the idea could see passengers printing out their luggage labels at home and attaching them to their luggage before arriving at the airport. This would allow passengers to minimise their time spent waiting around and overall achieve a faster travel process.
IATA said “Internet check-in and home-printed baggage tags allow the passenger to arrive at the airport ready to travel, thereby reducing passenger dwell time in landside areas of the airport.”
“This will bring the triple benefit of reduced queues landside, more effective screening, and an improved passenger experience,” the association stated.
