New bag drop option opens in car park at Denver International
The free bag drop service allows passengers to check bags in from the comfort of their car before boarding the shuttle to the terminal.
Denver International Airport (DEN) has announced the opening of a new, free bag drop service at its shuttle parking lots. DEN passengers parking in the Pikes Peak or Mt. Elbert lots can now check their bags and print their boarding passes prior to parking their car and boarding a shuttle to the terminal.
Airport CEO Kim Day said: “This new bag drop service is the first of its kind in the country and is another way Denver International Airport is working to make travel easier for our passengers. Ultimately, our goal is to make your trip as efficient and enjoyable as we can, and this bag drop is another one of the unique services we now offer to accomplish this goal.”
Bag drop service in DEN’s Pikes Peak and Mt. Elbert shuttle car parks will save passengers time as they will not have to go to a check-in counter in the terminal and it eliminates the hassle of carrying luggage onto the shuttle and through the terminal.
Additionally, with less luggage on the shuttle, there is more space for passengers. To use the service, passengers should follow signs in the Pikes Peak and Mt. Elbert parking lots to the bag drop kiosk where a greeter will remove the luggage from the car, check in the passenger and even print boarding passes. Then, the passenger proceeds to park, boards the shuttle and heads directly to security once arriving at the terminal.
Bag drop is a free service offered by DEN and is available for domestic flights on Southwest, United, Delta and American Airlines. Passengers using bag drop must be checked in and have dropped off their bags at least 90 minutes before their flight. Airline bag fees are paid at the bag drop kiosk.
