Express Bag Drop

The Benefit

If all you need to do is check your bags, Express Bag Drop is for you! This separate line lets Customers who already have a boarding pass in hand and just need to check a bag move past the ticket counter faster so they can get on with the rest of their trip.

How It Works

Follow three simple steps to take advantage of Express Bag Drop:

  1. Arrive at the airport with your boarding pass*. You can get a boarding pass online as early as 24 hours before your flight!
  2. Scan the bar code on your boarding pass at the Express Bag Drop kiosk and indicate the number of bags you are checking.
  3. Show your government-issued photo ID to the Customer Service Agent who will tag your bag so you can be on your way!

*If you don’t have a boarding pass when you arrive, you can also obtain one at the “Self-Service” kiosk in the lobby area.

Where To Go

In most cases, Express Bag Drop is located at the end of our ticket counter closest to the security checkpoint because we know you are in a hurry and want to get to the gate fast! Just look for the Express Bag Drop sign indicating the line’s location when you arrive. Our friendly Customer Service Agents at the line entrance can also help direct you to correct lane.

Express Bag Drop Cities

Express Bag Drop lines are currently located at the following cities.

 

  • Boston (Logan)
  • Orlando
  • San Juan
  • Tampa

 

At this time, Express Bag Drop will not be available at Southwest Airlines Ticket Counters in non-U.S. airport locations.
