PostNL Bagage Service connected to Schiphol technology

The PostNL Baggage Service for passengers flying from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Eindhoven Airport, introduced in March 2017, is now connected at Schiphol to the same technology that is used for the self-service baggage drop-off machines.

Schiphol started the test pilot for this service in 2017 and now, in the summer of 2018, the baggage service is to be continued and expanded. By connecting the PostNL Baggage Service to the airport's baggage drop-off technology, Schiphol aims to make the process of travelling as pleasant as possible and to ensure that more passengers and airlines will make use of this service in the future.

How does the service work?
The check-in service (from € 12.50 per item) works as follows. A PostNL employee collects your baggage from your home and immediately scans your boarding pass. Using the Schiphol systems, the information on the boarding pass is verified with the airline concerned, ensuring that the baggage is checked in immediately. At the airport, your baggage will be transported to the aircraft via the regular process. It then travels along with you to your final destination. The PostNL Baggage Service enables you to travel to Schiphol with only your hand luggage, and proceed to the security check straight away. In addition to the check-in service, you can also use the standard PostNL baggage service. Your baggage is then delivered at the airport, where you can pick it up and then check in yourself.
