Passengers transiting through Terminal 2 can use the self-service check-in machines to print boarding passes and baggage tags and then go ahead to the bag drop.
London City Airport
Some airlines partner with smaller carriers like BA CityFlyer, KLM Cityhopper, and Lufthansa CityLine that operate from the modest London City Airport. This is the closest airport to central London, making it convenient to reach, particularly for business travellers in the city centre. The single, two-story terminal building is easy to navigate. The ground floor has the check-in desks and departures are on the first floor. Self-service check-in is available for British Airways, Lufthansa, and Swiss Air Lines, and self bag-tagging is also available for British Airways passengers.
