The carrier with the largest traffic at Budapest Airport, Wizz Air was the first to join the new service, but it is also available to any other carrier wishing to join.
Budapest Airport asks departing passengers to use the self-service baggage drop-off system whenever it is available for their flights, to minimize physical contact.
The system enables passengers to scan the barcode found on their (printed or electronic) boarding pass, and to print and place the bag tag on their hold baggage themselves.
Then, at the automated, self-service counters located opposite the bag tag printers, they can check in their hold baggage easily, by scanning the bag tag.
The advantage of the self-service system is that hold baggage can be checked in conveniently, quickly and without physical contact with people.
Check-in counters are operational in Terminal 2B, and passenger security screening also occurs in Terminal 2B. The screening lanes on the 2A side are currently closed.
Following security screening, passengers once again enter the transit area through the Heinemann Duty Free shop.
More and more shops, cafés and restaurants are reopening to passengers at the airport, in line with effective regulations. Food and beverage outlets, gift shops, the supermarket, cafés and restaurants are once again available at the airport.
Staff there serve passengers in face masks, and disinfectant cleaning is also carried out on a regular basis.
