Six new self-service bag drop units have been installed by Lufthansa at Munich Airport as part of the airline’s strategy to give passengers more control over the baggage process.
The system is in place in Terminal 2 and by the end of November, a further 13 units will be installed.
Elsewhere, Lufthansa is also planning to implement 16 baggage drop-off machines at Frankfurt Airport. The system has been undergoing a trial period at Germany’s largest airport, during which 95,000 passengers have made use of the facility.
Passengers who wish to use the self-service bag drop option simply have to check their bag in themselves at a kiosk before depositing the bag at the bag drop machine.
