    Baggage Reclaim
    After clearing immigration on arrival, passengers can collect their checked-in baggage in the carousels at the baggage reclaim area. The average luggage unloading time, from aircraft to luggage belt, is nine minutes, and all baggage handling can normally be completed in about 20 minutes. If your luggage has not appeared after 20 minutes, approach the help desk for assistance. Free baggage trolleys are conveniently positioned in the arrival hall and airport entrance, along the main taxi drop-off area.
