Stockholm Arlanda Airport in Sweden is currently installing an automated bag drop system at its international terminal, Terminal 5.

The new bag-drop service will initially be offered by SAS and Norwegian Air Shuttle from 10 October 2012.

The new Self-Service Bag Drop solution, intended to enhance passenger processing, is being installed as part of a plan to provide enhanced automated solutions at Swedavia-operated airports.

Stockholm Arlanda Airport chief operating officer Lena Rökaas said it is part of the common plan of the airport and the airlines to simplify travel.

"Self-service solutions are greatly appreciated, and this is a further step in finding and developing new solutions that simplify the flow at the airport and save valuable time for our passengers," Rökaas said.

After the introduction of the solution, passengers will receive their baggage tags from the automated check-in machine installed at the airport and in the parking facilities, as well as train stations in the region.

"The new bag-drop service will initially be offered by SAS and Norwegian Air Shuttle from 10 October 2012."

The baggage will be unloaded at the Self-Service Bag Drop counter, where the barcode on the baggage tag will be scanned by passengers, who can follow the step-by-step instructions displayed on the touch screen.

Airlines will continue to offer a staffed Bag Drop counter for passengers at the airport.

Swedavia is planning further deployments of the new automated bag drop service along with automated check-in machines at its airports across Sweden.

Norwegian firm DSG Systems is responsible for delivering self-service BagDrop solutions for the Swedish airports as part of a four-year framework agreement with Swedavia.
