This may be welcome news if you fly on United.  United just announced a ‘bag short-cut’ instead of waiting in the long lines.

If you’re flying you will be able to skip the baggage lines and check your own bag.

The service will be free and  offered at Denver International Airport (DIA), Chicago, New York/Newark, Washington D.C., Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

According to United – here is how it will work:

  1. Check-in on the United app and select the number of bags.
  2. Find the bag drop shortcut location at DIA (detailed instructions available in the app.)
  3. At the bag drop shortcut location, place bags on the scale and scan the boarding pass at the kiosk.
  4. United team will check the customer’s ID, apply the bag tag and you’re done!
