Cathay Pacific has introduced new self-service baggage drop facilities at Hong Kong International Airport.
Available for passengers flying with Cathay and its sister carrier Dragonair, the new service allows customers who have checked in online to print their own baggage tag and then leave their luggage at the new stations, without having to queue up at check-in counters.
The facilities have been operational since 1 April and are located at the Cathay Pacific counters in Aisle C and Dragonair counters at Aisle H at HKIA.
In the initial stage, the service is only available on certain routes, including Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore on Cathay Pacific, and Chiang Mai, Fukuoka, Kota Kinabalu, Okinawa, Penang and Phuket on Dragonair. But the airlines said they plan to expand the service to include more routes in future.
