Delhi Airport Introduces Self-Baggage Drop for Better Flyer Experience

Delhi Airport has announced the launch of Self-Baggage Drop (SBD) at Terminal-3 of Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport.

This innovative passenger-friendly initiative aims to streamline the baggage drop-off process to reduce your wait time by approximately 15-20 minutes and further enhance your overall airport experience.

With its ability to cater to up to three passengers per minute, the SBD facility can significantly reduce the overall time you invest in processing your baggage at check-in counters.

Delhi Airport has installed 14 self-baggage drop machines, including 12 fully automated and two hybrid devices to ensure a seamless travel experience for passengers.

How can you use the self-baggage drop?

The self-baggage drop offers a simple and efficient two-step process:

  • First, you can generate your boarding passes and baggage tags at the Self Check-In kiosk. Then, you can attach the baggage tag to your luggage.
  • After tagging your check-in baggage, you can proceed to the SBD facility, where you can scan your boarding pass, declare your luggage is free of prohibited/dangerous items, and load your baggage onto the designated belt.

Once these steps are completed, the baggage will be automatically transferred to the sorting area and subsequently onto the aircraft. Here, you should note that you don’t need to register separately to utilise this facility.

Where is the self-baggage facility counter located?

The self-baggage drop facility is conveniently located at Check-in Row-P of Terminal-3.

Who can use the self-baggage drop service?

While currently, passengers travelling Indigo will be able to use the facility, five other airlines including, Air India, Vistara, Air France, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines & British Airways are likely to allow usage of self-baggage drop for their passengers in the near future.

Moreover, after successful testing, the self-baggage drop will be made available for international flyers.

In a Nutshell

The introduction of the Self-Baggage Drop by the airport reflects its commitment to innovation and zeal to enhance the airport experience for passengers.
