A new service from Amadeus and Off-Airport Check-In Solutions will allow travelers to drop off their luggage before even going to the airport. The mobile check-in process will give travelers to drop off their luggage at places like hotels and schools.
Using a cloud-based system the company wants to create check-in stations at places like conferences, cruise terminals, hotels, and railway stations.
Matthew Lee, OACIS’ chief executive officer spoke about the concept.
“The goal of our service is to provide passengers with more freedom [and] flexibility…so that they can make their travels more optimal. Travelers can leave their luggage in an appropriate place, [enjoy] the day without a suitcase, get to the airport quickly and without having to check in at the airport, and be aware of the luggage waiting for them at the destination.”
Virgin Australia is the first company to use the service and it is expected to grow from there.
