How to use BAGTAG with Lufthansa

Experience the faster way of travelling with Lufthansa. 

First register your BAGTAG in the BAGTAG app

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 Lufthansa app to setup your BAGTAG.

Check-in

To setup the BAGTAG for your journey, please use the Lufthansa app to check in for your flight and to obtain your mobile boarding pass as you would normally do.

After checking in for your flight, there are two ways to update your BAGTAG from within the Lufthansa app.

Option 1: Creating a bag tag from your mobile boarding pass . Open your mobile boarding pass on your smartphone. In the boarding pass’s drop-down menu, which you can open via the symbol on the bottom right on an iPhone and the top right on an Android device, you will find the entry ‘Smart bag’.

Option 2: Creating a bag tag from the main menu of the Lufthansa app. The entry ‘Smart bag’ is a sub-item of the menu item ‘Baggage’ in the Lufthansa app. The ‘Smart bag’ entry opens a list of the upcoming flights for which you have already checked in. You will find the menu item ‘Smart bag’ listed under each travel entry.

Regardless of the method, you will be directed to the preceding declaration concerning the carriage of dangerous goods. You have to acknowledge and confirm this declaration for legal reasons. After confirmation, the choice of manufacturer for your ‘Smart bag’ will be displayed. Select BAGTAG.

BAGTAG login

To set up your BAGTAG, you have to login using the account credentials of your BAGTAG account. You obtained these credentials when registering your BAGTAG in the BAGTAG app.

After filling in your account credentials, please press the button on your BAGTAG and tap ‘Proceed’ on your screen to start the transfer. The BAGTAG will then be updated.

After updating your BAGTAG, the Lufthansa app shows you the essential information that should be found on the BAGTAG display. Please check and confirm that the display and the information match. If you notice any discrepancies, or if the transfer has not been successful, you can start a new transfer attempt after tapping on ‘Cancel’.

You will receive the electronic baggage receipt in the Lufthansa app after you dropped off your bag at the airport.

Drop off at the airport

As a BAGTAG user, you arrive at the airport fully prepared. You only have to drop off your luggage.

At Frankfurt, Munich, and Berlin-Tegel Airport, you can use Lufthansa’s Fast Lane + Fast Bag Drop machines to drop off your luggage very quickly. Fast Bag Drop machines can be found at the following airports:

Frankfurt Airport: Terminal 1, Departure Hall B and in the AiRail Check-in at the long-distance railway station.

Munich Airport: Terminal 2, Level 4.

Berlin-Tegel Airport: Terminal B, Counters B26-29.

On all other stations, BAGTAGs are accepted at self-service bag drop machines and at manned check-in counters as well.

Enjoy your flight!
