Set to be introduced on Thursday, the baggage machines, along with self-check-in devices, are expected to help shorten the average check-in and baggage drop-off time from some 20 minutes to 2-3 minutes.

The first-ever introduction of the automatic baggage drop system for international flight passengers at a Japanese airport comes in the run-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

The machines will initially be available to passengers of Air France, Korean Air and two other carries at the Narita airport’s Terminal 1 North Wing.
