Auto Bag Drop
ICM’s ABD units enable passengers to check-in their baggage by themselves without having to queue at a check-in desk, designed to enhance the passenger check-in experience and boosting terminal operations.
The ABD solution has been in use at single and common-use airports in both domestic and international locations.
ICM’s ABD solutions are available as a simpler retrofit unit or a fully automated machine, aiming to give passengers a fast and efficient bag drop with uncompromised safety and security.

Series 7 ABD units were the world’s first to integrate biometrics for face-to-passport validation.
Advanced airport check-in kiosks
ICM announced the next-generation check-in kiosk as the latest addition to its suite of solutions. It features the same design details as the ABD range. The consistent look and feel across the entire check-in and bag drop process is intended to provide a faster and easier passenger experience.
This uniform approach to hardware and software for check-in and bag drop, as well as the ability to integrate biometric verification for single token end-to-end processing provides operational benefits for airports and airlines and ease of use for passengers.
