Qatar Airways launches My Q-Tag home-printed bag tag


The Qatar Airways My Q-Tag is designed to give passengers more control over their own travel experience.

Qatar Airways has become the first airline based in the Middle East to introduce home-printed bag tags, which can be used by international passengers flying to 103 destinations from Hamad International Airport in Doha.

Known as My Q-Tag, the Qatar Airways home-printed bag tag can be printed at home along with the boarding pass when passengers check-in online. When they arrive at the airport, passengers can collect a reusable plastic wallet to place the tag inside, attach it to their bag, and proceed to a web check-in bag drop counter where a customer service agent will process the pre-labelled luggage.

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker commented: “Qatar Airways passengers will be thrilled to take advantage of our new My Q-Tag service, along with the comfort and functional design of the new airport.”

The launch of My Q-Tag follows the recent presentation of the IATA Fast Travel Green Award to Qatar Airways in recognition of its dedication to embracing self-service across the travel value chain.

Lufthansa, Alaska Airlines, Air France and Iberia are among other airlines to have launched home-printed bag tags, which are fast becoming a popular way for airlines to give their customers more control over their travel experience.
