RFID - effective baggage tracking technology for
airlines and airports

How RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology makes baggage handling safer

RFID streamlines real time baggage tracking and therefore ensures that it can be easily identified. Airlines and airports implementing this technology can dramatically reduce their numbers of lost or misrouted bags. By improving baggage handling operations, airlines and airports meet the needs of passengers for real time baggage information and comply with IATA

resolution 753. RFID technology ensures efficient luggage tracking at all touchpoints – from drop-off to delivery. Depending on the customer’s individual requirements, Materna IPS offers a wide range of implementation options as well.
