Qatar Airways unveils 'My Q-Tag'

9 Jun 2014 by GrahamSmith

Qatar Airways has introduced a time-saving system that allows passengers to print their baggage tag online.

The My Q-Tag lets passengers arrive at the airport and proceed directly to the "web check-in bag drop counter", where their already-labelled luggage is processed.

The process is currently available to 103 destinations flying from Doha's Hamad International Airport.

After checking-in online, passengers need to select "Enter baggage details", input the number of bags they plan to carry, and then print off a form that folds into four quarters. This is then placed into a plastic wallet that is available at the check-in desk.

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said: "Qatar Airways passengers will be thrilled to take advantage of our new My Q-Tag service, along with the comfort and functional design of the new airport, and the exceptional shopping and dining choices it offers."

Qatar Airways claims it is the first within the Gulf region to implement the online system on international destinations.

Last month, the airline launched a five-weekly direct Dreamliner service between Doha and Edinburgh (see news, May 28).
