Passengers travelling from Katowice Airport to Schengen Area countries can now use a new InPost Parcel Locker service, enabling them to send items prohibited in hand baggage. The Parcel Locker is located on the first floor of Terminal B, before the entrance to the security control area.
“We aim to introduce solutions at Katowice Airport which improve the comfort of using our airport,” said Artur Tomasik, President of the Board of the Upper Silesian Aviation Group (GTL SA), the company managing Katowice Airport. “The possibility to send items prohibited in hand luggage via the InPost Parcel Locker is a considerable convenience for passengers flying from Katowice Airport. I am certain that the new service will be well received by passengers.”
In the event when, during security control, a prohibited item is detected in hand luggage, passengers will have the opportunity to use the InPost Parcel Locker. They will have the option to return to the beginning of the security control area, where the Parcel Locker is located. Free cardboard boxes and tape are available at the Parcel Locker location, allowing travellers to quickly pack their parcel. To post a parcel, it is necessary to use the InPost Mobile app. In the future, if the new service is popular, both InPost and Katowice Airport do not exclude the possibility of introducing the same solution by security control in Terminal A, which is used by passengers departing to non-Schengen countries.
