The airline plans to expand the shortcut to dozens of airports this year
United Airlines Inc. has introduced a bag drop shortcut to allow customers to skip the line, check their bag in a minute or less and get to their flight.
Steps for the same are as follows:
- Check-in on the United app and select the number of bags.
- Find the bag drop shortcut location at the airport with detailed instructions available right in the app.
- At the bag drop shortcut location, customers place their bag on the scale and scan their boarding pass at the kiosk.
- The United team will check the customer’s ID, apply the bag tag and they’re on their way.
This free service is available now at all of United’s U.S. hubs in Chicago, New York/Newark, Washington D.C., Houston, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and the airline plans to expand the shortcut to dozens of airports this year.
