The system, which includes self-tagging, check-in and baggage drop, is fully automated and gives AirAsia passengers complete control of the check-in process, saving time and simplifying passenger processing for the airline.
Automated self-service check-in is revolutionising passenger experience all over the world, offering a streamlined experience for both passengers and airports. Airlines are able to manage costs more efficiently with a self-service system, as more passengers book and check-in online and arrive at the airport with pre-printed boarding passes. The system at Senai allows passengers to use the kiosks at the airport to print bag tags before using a handheld scanner to process both this and their boarding passes without any intervention from airline personnel.
Other providers of self-service kiosks, such as Rockwell Collins’ ARINC BagDrop system enables cost sharing amongst airlines with a multiple airline bag drop facility, removing the necessity for dedicated airline baggage drop points and saving valuable space within the terminal.
