myAustrian HomeTag

With the myAustrian HomeTag you are perfectly equipped for your trip! On selected routes you can prepare your luggage at home and save valuable time at the airport.

What is a HomeTag?

The myAustrian HomeTag is a tag for your luggage that you can print out in colour at home. It allows you to have your items of luggage already prepared for your flight before you arrive at the airport. The myAustrian HomeTag includes passenger and travel information.

Instead of adding a luggage tag to your baggage at the airport you can now do so yourself for selected flight routes at home.

At the moment the HomeTag is available for flights to Zurich and Miami. As a next step this service will be expanded to other routes. If the HomeTag option is available for your trip you will be informed automatically during web check-in.

If you are flying from Vienna airport you can drop off your bag at one of the baggage drop-off desks.
For flights departing within the European Union (EU) the current conditions of the EU require that your HomeTag is printed out in colour. We ask for your understanding that HomeTags that are not printed out in colour cannot be accepted within the EU.

How can you obtain your HomeTag?

To obtain a HomeTag the following steps must be followed:

  4. Now fold the HomeTag according to the instructions.
  5. Insert the folded HomeTag into the holder provided and attach it to your luggage so that your travel information is clearly visible from both sides.

HomeTag folding instructions

  3. Fold the sheet in half once more across the middle to A6 size, with the printed side facing outwards.

Where can you get your personal HomeTag holder?

You receive the holders at the myAustrian check-in desks. Please remove the holder after arrival. You can re-use it for your next flight. If you already have a holder from Lufthansa, SWISS or Brussels Airlines you can use it for your myAustrian flight.
