Waiting for your luggage at the airport can sometimes take forever. Here are a few tips on how to get your luggage at the airport faster in the future.
Time at the airport could be much shorter if it weren’t for the long wait at the baggage carousel. We give you tips on how to get your luggage faster in the future.
Check-in suitcases late: At some airports, baggage carts are loaded by hand from front to back. This is done to stabilize the weight while moving. If you check in your suitcase just before the end, the bag is placed at the back of the baggage cart. In this way, the suitcase is also loaded onto the aircraft at the end. When loading at the destination airport, the briefcase will be loaded again at the front of the baggage cart.
Mark suitcase with “fragility sticker”: If your bag has a “fragility” sticker, the appropriate airport personnel will handle your suitcase separately. At some airports, luggage with this sticker is even transported to the end of the plane. In conclusion, your luggage will be the first to be taken off the plane at your destination.
Choose the right time: Make sure that your flight does not land in the late morning. There is a lot of chaos at the airports at this time of the day, making for long waiting times.
Fly First Class: You are only guaranteed to get your bags first if you decide to fly First Class.
Only hand luggage: For short trips, it can be worthwhile to take only hand luggage. But beware: If the flight is fully booked, it can be tight with the luggage compartments on the plane.
