Airport kiosks are self-service machines that allow travelers to perform various tasks such as check-in, print boarding passes, check bags, and request seating changes. They are designed to automate many common air travel-related tasks while providing convenience to the user and ultimately putting less strain on airport staff 1.

In addition to these specific functions, airport kiosks can also provide the same benefits as traditional kiosks, including increased brand visibility, wayfinding functionality, news headlines, and public health messaging 1.

Here are some of the main benefits of airport kiosks:

Faster Check-In Process: The primary benefit of a kiosk system is faster check-in for travelers. Long lines to check in for flights can be one of the most stressful parts of air travel, especially when pressed for time. Airport kiosks allow travelers to bypass the main check-in counters, giving them more time to get through security and to their gates 1.

Print Ticket & Boarding Passes: Kiosks allow travelers to print boarding passes ahead of time, with some airports making kiosks available right at the airport entrances. As with online check-in, it simply requires providing credentials such as a confirmation number or the credit card used to make the reservation, and then the kiosk will print out a physical boarding pass. This greatly expedites the check-in process, especially when traveling with a carry-on only 1.

Print Luggage Tag: Airport kiosks allow travelers to print luggage tags, which are required for all checked baggage. Traditionally, travelers would have to wait in line to receive these tags, but with a kiosk, the process can be completed at the same time as checking in for a flight and printing boarding passes. Baggage is then simply dropped at a bag drop station before the traveler proceeds to a security checkpoint 1.

Multilingual Support: Airport kiosks include software that presents information in a wide range of languages, making them easy to use for most travelers 1.

Increased Efficiency: Airport kiosks allow airports to operate more safely and efficiently by automating many common tasks. This reduces wait times and puts less strain on airport staff 1
