Kempegowda International in Bangalore is the first airport in India to adopt a fully automated self-bag drop (SBD) system, after deploying the Air.Go system from Materna ips.
A total of 16 Air.Go SBD units were rolled out on 15 November for use by Air Asia and SpiceJet passengers. Up to 32 self-service check-in kiosks will be installed.
Materna offers Air.Go as either a single- or two-step SBD solution, aligned with international common-use self-service (CUSS) standards. The installations at Kempegowda use a two-stage method, requiring passengers to print a boarding pass and bag tag at a self-service check-in kiosk, before proceeding to the bag drop machine where the boarding pass is scanned to start the process.
