World Leaders in Common Use Bag Drop Solutions
BCS, with air transport communications and IT specialist, SITA, unveiled a comprehensive self-service baggage check-in solution for common-use platforms that provides passengers with total self-service with issue of boarding passes and bag tags at the self service check-in kiosk followed by a fully automated acceptance of the bags via the BCS BAGgate™.
Marc Michel, BCS General Manager Services and Solutions said the recent SITA self service survey showed 70% of passengers would tag their own bags if they could, and that BCS/SITA unique common use solution via BAGgate™ now delivered the missing links in unassisted bag drop to enable this.
With the BCS/SITA end to end self service solution passengers can check in at a kiosk for issue of boarding passes and now also bag tags printed for self tagging. Then they simply proceed to a self-service bag drop area where the BCS BAGgate™ automatically scans the bag tag ,reconciles the boarding pass and passenger, and then the bag is weighed, measured and dispatched for the flight without the need for agent intervention.
