Air India Introduces Self-Check-In and Baggage Drop for US Flights



Air India is a leading airline that has been taking several initiatives to further enhance air travel. Air India self check in and baggage drop facility has been introduced for US flights. The aim of this service is to make check-in easier and improve the passenger experience. Now, you can print your boarding pass and baggage tag on your own and drop your luggage at the designated slots.

Notably, Air India is the only airline that is offering this automated service for passengers on flights to USA from India. The automated initiative will provide a hassle-free airport experience for tech-savvy passengers traveling from Bengaluru, known as the Silicon Valley of India, to the US Silicon Valley, the global tech hub. Furthermore, the success of this facility has already been implemented for domestic flights.

How will Air India self-check-In and baggage drop facility be helpful? 

Air India’s new self check in and baggage drop services allow you to print your boarding pass and tags and drop your luggage independently. This way, you don’t have to wait at the counter for check-in, saving you time and making your journey hassle-free. You can also customize your trip and access various facilities through the kiosk. For example, you can select your seat and update your frequent flyer details.

Previously, Air India’s self check-in services were only available at Delhi’s Terminal 3 for domestic flights and international flights bound for Australia. The airline now plans to extend this service to its other international destinations such as Singapore and Male. This shows Air India’s commitment to offer efficient and seamless travel solutions for passengers across its network. 

Air India Seeks to Get US Pre-Clearance at Delhi Airport

In order to further facilitate a seamless journey, Air India is seeking to obtain a US CBP preclearance at Delhi Airport. In previous years, the airline has requested this facility at major airports in India but the proposal was denied by the Ministry of Civil Aviation. 

With plans of having an international hub in India, similar to those in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Singapore, the government thinks Delhi Airport is the right choice. The Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) and the Ministry of Civil Aviation are looking at ways to improve operations for a better travel experience. One of the proposed solutions is the implementation of US pre-clearances at Delhi Airport. This initiative would allow the passengers to clear the US immigration and customs prior to departure from India. Indian carriers such as Air India would benefit from this facility as it would attract passengers and increase traffic towards the US. Additionally, Delhi airport would thrive as a transfer hub if this becomes a reality.

What are the benefits of US pre-clearance?

US pre-clearance is a win-win situation for travelers and airlines alike. It allows for faster connections and reduces the amount of time spent at US immigration processing upon arrival. It also gives airlines access to more gates at airports, improving operational efficiency. But establishing a US pre-clearance at Delhi Airport isn’t easy. It requires government approval and infrastructure improvements. 

Be it Air India self check in and baggage drop facility or the prospect of starting a US preclearance at Delhi airport, these initiatives are in line with the hub’s overall strategy and focus on enhancing the overall passenger experience. 

If you are planning to travel from USA to India or vice versa, booking an Indian Eagle itinerary is a smart idea. You’ll not only get the best airfare but you will also enjoy uninterrupted customer support throughout your journey. So, why wait? Book your flight now and get ready for a hassle-free experience.
