Electronic Bag Tag

An electronic bag tag is a paperless, electronic alternative to the paper bag tag that is usually placed on your bag at check-in. It includes the same information as the paper version with the added benefit of giving you the option of checking your bags in before arriving at the airport, enabling you to head straight to baggage drop-off.

Icelandair supports the electronic bag tags of the supplier BAGTAG and the electronic bag tags integrated in some RIMOWA models.

The electronic bag tag supported by Icelandair is provided by BAGTAG and is:

  • batteryless (BAGTAG Flex)
  • impact resistant
  • water and dust resistant
  • heat and cold resistant

How does it work?

  1. Book your flight.
  2. Check in for your flight through online check-in.
  3. Download the BAGTAG app from Google Play store or the App Store. You activate the tag by following the steps provided in the app.
  4. Check your baggage in using the app and transfer the flight information to your BAGTAG from the app.
  5. You're all set! You can drop your bags off at the self-service drop off counter at the airport.
