Cathay Pacific has launched self-check in and bag drop kiosks at Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal.

The automation provides a seamless, stress-free and fast check-in experience, enabling its customers to have more time to relax before their flights.

The carrier's regional general Mmnager Europe, James Ginns, said: “Gatwick is our first UK airport to launch the new check-in and bag-drop service. This is part of our Future Airport Experience project, the vision of which is to improve the quality of time our customers spend prior to boarding.

“If we ask ourselves how we wish to spend our time at the airport, the answer is most certainly not ‘in a queue’. The latest facilities not only meet our customers’ growing demand for faster, smoother journeys, they also enable our staff to interact more proactively with our customers and deliver better on our brand promise of a Life Well Travelled.”

With the new technology, the whole check-in and bag-drop process should take just under a minute.
