Off-Airport Check-In Trial: Pick Up Your Luggage at Arrival Airport from Near Nagoya Station

Meitetsu Department Store at Nagoya Station

Nagoya Railroad, All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan Airlines (JAL), and five other parties are conducting a trial for an off-airport check-in service.

The off-airport check-in desk located inside the Meitetsu Department Store on the first floor near Meitetsu Nagoya Station will accept luggage, which will then be loaded onto a dedicated train bound for Chubu Centrair International Airport, and subsequently loaded onto the aircraft to be delivered directly to the destination airport. The trial will run from February 4th to 11th, targeting passengers on ANA flight 715 and JAL flight 3117 to Sapporo/Chitose, who can complete boarding procedures via smartphone.

By separating passengers and their luggage, the trial aims to ease congestion on public transport, enhance travel convenience for wide-area tourism through the promotion of hands-free tourism, and expand tourism consumption.

Nagoya Railroad is utilizing the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism’s “Co-Creation Model Demonstration Project” for this trial. Other collaborators include Chubu Centrair International Airport, Hokkaido Airport, Airporter, AGP, and the NPO Next Generation Airport Technology Research Association. Additionally, a demonstration experiment targeting travelers from Hokkaido to Chubu Centrair International Airport will also be conducted.
