New self check-in kiosk at Warsaw Chopin Airport
Now, including the older-generation facilities, Chopin Airport offers as many as 23 self check-in kiosks. All belong to the airport and have been purchased to meet the needs of airlines and keep up with global trends in passenger check-in technologies.
All of the new self check-in kiosks have card readers, as well as barcode and document scanners, allowing passengers to check-in smoothly, print out boarding passes and in some cases even bag tags (currently the service is only offered by one airline).
Once the boarding pass is printed, passengers can proceed directly to security control and board the plane. After they have completed self check-in, those travelling with hold luggage can use dedicated bag drop-off points.
“The new self check-in facilities are yet another element of Chopin Airport’s passenger and baggage handling quality policy. With the decision to install more self check-in kiosks, equipped with bag tag printers, we want to implement the latest solutions for easier and faster passenger handling that can be seen at airports around the world,” said Michał Hofman, head of Passenger Handling Service.
The first passengers to be able to use the new kiosks were those flying with one of the seven airlines: LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Finnair, Air France and KLM. Soon, the kiosks will also be available to passengers travelling with British Airways and Aeroflot. Other airlines are expected to follow in the course of the next few months.
