The automatic check-in machine is installed by an airline (sometimes installed by an airport company such as Incheon Airport or Haneda Airport), so it cannot be used unless the airline of the flight to be used has installed it at that airport. Usually, in addition to major airports in the home country, they are often installed at overseas airports that have flights.
