Passengers travelling with Qantas from Hong Kong International Airport can now use the airline’s self-check-in kiosks.
The Australian carrier has set up new self-check-in kiosks that allow passengers to check in, select seats and collect their boarding passes without staff assistance.
A spokesperson from Qantas told Business Traveller Asia-Pacific that the airline now has ten self-check-in kiosks in aisle J at Terminal 1. Two of these kiosks are currently being used by Qantas on a trial basis at the moment.
Qantas passengers can also use the airline’s existing airport counter check-in facilities, as well as the in-town check-in service available at the two MTR stations: Hong Kong Station and Kowloon Station.
A number of airlines offer self-check-in kiosks at Hong Kong International Airport. The airport says it has more than 70 smart check-in kiosks in Terminal 1. About 19 different airlines offer self-check-in services at Hong Kong airport.
Earlier this year, Japanese airline ANA gave its domestic self-service check-in kiosks an upgrade. The domestic kiosks feature a passport reader, meaning passengers checking in to domestic flights are able to get their boarding passes for connecting international flights rather than having to check-in a second time.
