Airlines are evolving their bag drop capabilities, with some adopting print-at-home tags and British Airways piloting permanent tags. Anders Nielsen, a Billund Airport executive, says the system is working well for the airport and its passengers. "For Billund Airport, it only really makes sense to have the home-printed bag tags as we serve point-to-point traffic, which is what the tags are designed for," Nielsen said. "However, there is no reason why an airport couldn’t offer both home-printed and permanent tags. Home-printed is ideal for point-to-point traffic, but permanent tags make more sense if a passenger has to connect."
