Self-service baggage drop

SAS is rolling out a fully automated baggage drop following a trial instigated in Norway last summer.  It is planned to be in operation at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport domestic terminal by September.  The service has been developed and launched in corporation with the airport providers Avinor in Norway and Swedavia in Sweden.  The fully automated system is equipped with SAS biometric technology and does not require any manning.  It recognizes what baggage allowance each passenger is entitled to, for example: if the customer is travelling on a Business Class ticket, or is a EuroBonus Gold or Silver card holder, the system automatically adjusts the baggage allowance.  Swipe your boarding card or phone. www.sas.com
