Airport Coat Checks Save Space During The Holidays

Airport Coat Checks Save Space During The Holidays

Why carry a winter coat when you are catching a flight to Hawaii?

Serena Chu

In an effort to save overhead bin space on planes, airports in Germany and South Korea have introduced a coat-check service for travelers carrying bulky winter coats. To check a winter coat, the Frankfurt airport charges 50 euro cents, which is about 67 cents in America. Travelers departing from Incheon can expect the same kind of service, but for free.

Both airports have received positive feedback, and commented on the growing popularity of this service. While this idea is very creative, it is uncertain if other international airports will be adopting the coat-checking service anytime soon. Nonetheless, this seasonal service demonstrates a value of innovation at airports. Travelers can now travel without a jacket in hand or a care in mind Рvacation just became hassle free.
