Self-service baggage drop-off available at Rīga airport

Four self-service baggage drop-off points are now open at Riga Airport, the airport said in a release September 13.

The self-service baggage drop-off points are located in the Airport’s departure hall at check-in desks No. 8-11. Non-standard baggage, such as prams, sports equipment, oversize baggage, and similar items cannot be checked in at the self-service drop-off points.

The service time of one bag at the self-service baggage drop-off point is about a minute, so it is possible to handle about 60 pieces of baggage on one line per hour. Riga International Airport has invested 230 thousand euros in the new lines.

Initially, the self-service baggage drop-off facilities will be available only to  airBaltic  passengers, but in the future, this service could also be offered to its customers by other airlines operating at Riga Airport.

The airport also published an informative video visualizing how the drop-off works.
