Now, get baggage cleared at Kempegowda International Airport in 45 seconds

Bengaluru: A major passenger convenience made its debut at the Kempegowda International Airport on Thursday with the launch of fully automated machines for baggage clearance here. The 16 self bag drop machines will ensure clearance of check-in baggage within just 45 seconds.

Air Asia India and Spice Jet airline passengers were the first to experience this service on Thursday. “These machines will significantly accelerate the baggage transaction and reduce check-in queues,” said an official release from BIAL.

The facility will be extended to other airlines in future. It takes a minimum of 5 minutes to 7 minutes to be cleared at a check-in counter presently and this facility will ensure a drastic reduction in that.
“The BLR Airport is the first in the Country to introduce a large deployment of fully automated baggage drop-off units,” said an official release.
