How to use BAGTAG with China Southern

China Southern Airlines - logo

China Southern Airlines offers its passengers the option to use BAGTAG’s electronic bag tag. The device is designed to replace traditional paper luggage tags and it features an electronic display that can be set up using a Bluetooth connection.

The BAGTAG is a permanent solution that can be used again and again. There is no longer a need to obtain a luggage tag at the airport that is made of wasteful thermal paper. Besides, you as a passenger are given full control over the baggage check-in process. You can arrive at the airport fully prepared and simply drop off your luggage. At airports with a two-step self-service bag drop, you can even skip the queues at the check-in kiosk.

Step 1 - Before your first flight with a BAGTAG

First register your BAGTAG in the BAGTAG app. The BAGTAG app can be downloaded in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Please make a note of your login details. You will need these later inside the China Southern Airlines app to setup your BAGTAG.

Step 2 - Check-in

To setup the BAGTAG for your journey, please use the China Southern Airlines app to check in for your flight as you would normally do. Within the check-in flow, you will be able to update your BAGTAG. More detailed information regarding the update process will follow soon on this page.

Step 3 - At the airport

As a BAGTAG user, you arrive at the airport fully prepared. You only have to drop off your luggage.  BAGTAGs are accepted at self-service bag drop machines and at manned check-in counters as well. 

BAGTAGs can be used on domestic China Southern Airlines flights departing from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and Beijing Daxing International Airport. China Southern Airlines and BAGTAG are working hard on making all destinations available to BAGTAG users in the short-term.

Good to know: the lithium content of the BAGTAG battery is well below the threshold for carriage on board a plane.
