HomeTag baggage label
Print the tag for your baggage at home and attach it to your case. This will save you valuable time at the airport on selected routes and allow you to check in your bags directly in the Fast Bag Drop-off Zone.
Prepare at home
Print your tag conveniently at home. You can get the appropriate holder at the Austrian check-in counters. If you save it, you can re-use it on your next flight.
Skip the queues at baggage check-in and take your case directly to the Baggage Drop-Off counter. Please do not hesitate to contact our employees if you have any questions.
Bypass peak times
There is increased activity at the airport during holiday periods. With the HomeTag you save valuable time that you would otherwise have to spend at baggage check-in.
HomeTag is currently only offered on flights with departures or destinations in the USA or Switzerland. This service is due to be extended to further routes.
If the option is available for your trip, the HomeTag option appears automatically during online check-in.
If your starting airport is in the European Union (EU), the applicable EU regulations require that your HomeTag must be printed in colour. Please understand that we are unfortunately not allowed to accept baggage in the EU with a HomeTag that is not printed in colour.
How to check in your bag with the HomeTag
Check in online
Check in online at austrian.com and enter the number of bags during the check-in process.
After receiving your mobile or printed boarding card, you can print the HomeTag for your case. For departure airports in the EU, please be sure to print the HomeTag in colour.
Now fold the HomeTag in accordance with the instructions on the printout. Insert the folded HomeTag into the holder provided and attach it to your bag so that your travel details are visible from both sides.
Fast Bag Drop-off is available at Vienna Airport. You can simply skip the queue at baggage check-in.
