Hawaiian Airlines bag tags

Hawaiian Airlines passengers flying from Seattle and Oakland have the option of printing their own bag tags during the online check-in process.

Hawaiian Airlines is undertaking a 60-day trial of home-printed bag tags to test the viability of its new TAG@HOME service. During the trial period, passengers travelling from Seattle-Tacoma and Oakland international airports can print out their bag tags before leaving for the airport by selecting the option during the online check-in process.

The home-printed tag simply needs to be folded and placed in a reusable TAG@HOME plastic sleeve, which can be collected from the airport. Once the tags have been attached to the bags, the luggage simply needs to be dropped at a dedicated Web Check-In Bag Drop counter.

At the end of the 60-day trial, Hawaiian Airlines will assess the performance of the bag tags and passengers’ reaction to the project, and the carrier will then “look into offering this option at other airports” if the results are positive.

Hawaiian Airlines’ trial of home-printed bag tags follows the rollout of the service in April 2014 by Alaska Airlines, which became the first US carrier to offer the do-it-yourself option. Outside of the US, home-printed bag tags have gained a lot of traction over the last 12 months, with the likes of Iberia, Lufthansa, Air France and Qatar Airways all launching the service.
