Airport Luggage Carousels

Turtle with suicase

When arriving at your destination after a long flight, you have much on your mind. Where to find a foreign exchange desk or ATM. Where to find a taxi or the rental car shuttle bus. Directions to your hotel.The first thing you are concerned about, however, is your luggage. Will it arrive? Which carousel will it be arriving on? If it doesn’t arrive, what will you do? Should you travel with carryon instead of checking bags?

We take one concern off your mind. As you are waiting by the carousel, you will be wondering which way should you be looking for your bags. You can prepare for this ahead of time using our Worldwide Report on Airport Luggage Carousels — Clockwise or Counterclockwise.
