Baggage Claim

In airport terminals, a baggage claim area is an area where arriving passengers claim checked-in baggage after disembarking from an airline flight.

The alternative term baggage reclaim is used to mean the same thing at many airports outside the USA.

A typical baggage claim area contains baggage carousels or conveyor systems that deliver checked baggage to the passenger. The baggage claim area generally contains the airline's customer service counter for claiming over sized baggage or to report missing baggage.
