Qantas has begin trialling a self-service bag drop facility at London's Heathrow Airport.
Located in the Qantas Economy checkin area (at Zone F in Heathrow's Terminal 3), just past the check-in kiosks, the bag drop channel is available for all Qantas and British Airways passengers.
The only catch: you have to hold an Australian, New Zealand or British passport, be travelling to Australia as your final destination and not have checked-in online.
Qantas says the move "is the first step to launching more elements of Faster, Smarter Check-in internationally".
"Faster, Smarter Check-in" is the new customer-friendly name for Next-Generation Check-in, which is now available at all Qantas terminals around Australia and in December last year was extended to New Zealand.
