Scan&Fly is much more than just a piece of hardware. Type22 customers receive a complete self-service bag drop process.

Explore the highlights below to find out more about the Scan&Fly features.

Floor layout plan and signage

Step 1: Floor layout plan and signage

Scan&Fly is much more than a mere piece of hardware. Type22 takes pride in its passenger process expertise, and we are more than happy to share our experience with you when implementing Scan&Fly.

The best passenger experience starts once the passenger enters the terminal. Which is why Scan&Fly includes not just our advice on floor layout and signage templates, but also instructional videos and how-to posters. It is our way of ensuring the passenger knows exactly what to do, and how to do it before reaching Scan&Fly, which saves time and money.


Step 2: Info&Fly

Scan&Fly is available with Info&Fly; two related information systems that results in more service for passengers and optimal efficiency on the floor.

Agent Information System (AIS)

A portable device is operated by the floorwalker to conveniently monitor:

– current status of all Scan&Fly units
– notifications of Scan&Fly usage or support requests
– warnings, which require immediate action

Management Information System (MIS)

MIS is the easiest way to monitor self-service bag drop. Data like success rates, records per passenger and the amount of processed bags are available to guarantee optimal performance.


The Process

Step 3: The Process

While we prefer the one-stop process from a passenger experience point of view, Scan&Fly is a complete and flexible Self Bag Drop solution that can be configured to fit specific airport and airline needs.

One-stop process: tag and drop a bag in under 60 seconds.
Two-stop process: drop a pre-tagged bag in under 15 seconds.
Combined process: passengers with or without pre-tagged baggage can drop their bag.

Performance and design. In a retrofit package.

Step 4: Performance and design. In a retrofit package.

Because of its smart design, Scan&Fly is so compact and light that it fits over existing airport check-in conveyors. The unique and patented design enables plug-and-play installation, with full BHS and DCS integration. No costly overhauls of the airport infrastructure needed.

The Type22 Bag Tag – already a winner

Step 5: The Type22 Bag Tag – already a winner

Type22 is dedicated to its focus on the best possible passenger experience. That is why Type22 has developed a brand new label to further increase passenger convenience and make the tag and drop process even faster.

The bag tag is already in use at Hong Kong International Airport, Brussels Airport and Geneva Airport.


BHS and DCS interface

Step 6: BHS and DCS interface

Departure Control System (DCS) interface

Scan&Fly is ideally suited for multiple airline use. To achieve this, the Scan&Fly application links via a Web Service to the DCS of all the participating airlines. To promote standardization, Scan&Fly is fully compliant with IATA / ACI ACRIS Web Services Standard for Self Bag Drop. This cost effective solution takes just weeks to implement and guarantees your passengers the best user experience you can imagine.

Baggage Handling System (BHS) interface

Our expertise in integrating Scan&Fly to existing weighing scales, check-in conveyors and collector belts is what makes us retrofit specialists. No matter who your BHS supplier is, which PLC’s you use or what hardware you have in place, we will make it work. We integrate Scan&Fly into your check-in counters to give you Self Bag Drop capability – without sacrificing the ability to process passengers manually when you need to

Passenger satisfaction survey

Step 7: Passenger satisfaction survey

Passengers are our first priority. Which is why Type22 values their opinion about the Scan&Fly experience. What do they like about Scan&Fly? What can be done to further improve the start of their journey? Scan&Fly includes a customized passenger satisfaction survey to find out.

  • When we talk about improving the passenger experience, the term Self Bag Drop is often mentioned in the same breath. But, how do passengers really feel about Self Bag Drop? Type22 asked them. A six month pilot with Scan&Fly, the Self Bag Drop solution from Type22, in Asia was the perfect opportunity.

    Scan&Fly in Asia, Fast and Easy Self Bag Drop

    Video: Scan&Fly in Asia

    The result?
    Passengers have fully embraced Self Bag Drop. 80% of the passengers would even prefer Self Bag Drop over of a traditional manned desk (including 5% that would prefer Self Bag Drop in case of queues). Self-tagging is often find the most difficult part of Self Bag Drop. But this doesn’t show. The passengers have rated the usability of the Type22 bag tag with an 8.

    What passengers say…
    For this pilot the Airport has chosen to test one-stop Self Bag Drop that offers passengers the best passenger experience because they can print and attach a bag tag and drop their hold baggage in one step. And that shows: they find Scan&Fly ‘Fast and easy’ and rate bag drop with Scan&Fly with an 8,4 (out of 10). A small selection of passenger quotes: ‘We didn’t have to queue, it’s very good’, ‘The bag drop process is fast and easy’ and ‘I can save time and can enjoy my breakfast earlier’.

    So Self Bag Drop really does improve the passengers journey because it is faster, and passengers no longer have to queue and thus spend more time on their breakfast, coffee, or to do a bit of shopping (and that is of course good news for the airports revenue..).

    1-stop Self Bag Drop

    This particular Airport was looking into Self Bag Drop solutions for a six month trial use of one-stop Self Bag Drop process, which means that passengers can both print and attach a bag tag and drop their hold baggage. The smart design enables Scan&Fly to fit on every existing airport infrastructure, utilizing the existing check-in desks and conveyer belts.
