With the new, fully automated baggage drop, passengers will benefit from even more independence and flexibility at departure. The aim is to bring passengers to the plane without time-consuming processes. Since the start of November 2017, ten “self bag drop” kiosks have been in operation in Terminal 1. They were officially launched today. Four stations have also been installed for automated check-in. The kiosks, developed and manufactured by Materna GmbH in Dortmund, are technically equipped to provide services for all airlines.
