  - Passengers of participating airlines can visit one of seven locations*  to check baggage hours prior to scheduled flight departure.
  - With this technology, 'Bags To Go' agents tag & store bags and issue your boarding pass, whereupon Bags To Go transports bags to McCarran for TSA screening and subsequent loading onto your plane.
