    Billund Airport has become the first airport in the world to allow passengers to print their own baggage tags and boarding cards at home before they come to the gateway.

    The new service follows a successful six-month trial earlier this year, which the airport claims proved “highly popular, making life easier for passengers and airport check-in personnel”.

    The ability to print out baggage tag means passengers avoid having to queue at traditonal bag drop stations when checking in their luggage.

    “So far, the feedback we’ve received has been 100% positive. Passengers save time at check-in, and no problems have been reported for printing the tags,” enthuses Billund’s vice president of project and development, Anders Nielsen.

    “Around 15% of our charter passengers have used the system since it was launched, and we want to get that figure up to 35-40% in the future.”

    The tags are printed onto a standard A4 sheet of paper, and then folded according to the instructions and inserted in a plastic cover (available free of charge at the airport), which is then secured to the bag.
