How to reduce queues in the check-in hall is a conundrum that many airports and airlines are faced with, and BBC told FTE that it has developed an effective solution to this challenge. The Tagomat allows for self-tagging to be moved beyond the boundaries of the airport. Passengers can simply scan their boarding pass to identify themselves and then their bag tags are printed out automatically. When they arrive at the airport, all they have to do is drop off their pre-tagged bag. Jørn Askvik, CFO, BBC, said the Tagomat could be installed in hotels, train stations or in airport car parks, for instance, to help ease queues in airport terminals. He explained that a trial is planned in Stavanger, where up to 12 units will be installed in a number of locations.
