First Time Travellers Guide to Airport Check-In Desks
Every airline has its specific requirements for check in time and goods
allowed to pass through the check-in counter. Make sure that your luggage
does not fall under dangerous goods category and hand it over to the airline
within the allotted time. Important tip - Avoid entertaining a stranger’s
baggage at the gate counter, it is a trap.
Security at the check-in desks before boarding the plane
Your security is a primary concern. In a bid to ensure maximum aircraft and
passenger safety, security regulations have been made more stringent than
before; that is why the scrutiny starts even at the check in counter. They may
do much more than just scan your baggage, give identity number and send to
cargo. The baggage has to pass through x-ray machines, and can be physically
examined sometimes. Due to an increase in terrorist activities and refugee
crisis, the purpose of your travel, evidence of confirmed accommodation, and
sufficient funds may be discussed at the check-in counter.
Counter check in fee
A fee is charged for the counter gate services. There is a way to avoid the fee
along with long, daunting queues and waiting time, but you still have to go
through the security checks. Use self-check-in kiosks, your mobile phone or
Time for check in counter
The check desk closes after a certain allotted time. 15 minutes before the
boarding time may be too late and you will not be allowed to hand over your
luggage. Reach the airport on time, use the servicemen at the check in desk
to register your presence and take your luggage into the cargo.
Use check-in kiosks: These are user-friendly touch screen devices that can be
used as a self-check-in counter to select your seat and print your boarding
pass within seconds. Check-in kiosks dodge queues, but you have to be there
within their services time. All check-in kiosks may close some minutes before
the boarding time.
The Curb side check-in: This is the most convenient way to check in for a
flight; you don't have to carry your baggage through a crowded airport. For
some airlines, the kerbside gate counters are offered only to first class
travellers, and VIP’s.
Final word: Tip -the servicemen at the gate counter do the check-in for a fee
using the same online platform you could have used. Utilize self-check-in
platforms and leave the check in counters for old folks. For more information
