How airlines are saving time and money with RFID


There are few inconveniences that are more annoying than lost luggage. Last year alone, 23.1 million bags were mishandled, according to SITA’s 2016 Baggage Report. The resulting passenger frustration and headaches for the airlines has given rise to an array of new baggage tracking systems based on RFID technology. In April of this year, Delta rolled out automated tracking of luggage using RFID tags to replace barcode scanning on the 120 million bags it handles per year. Delta anticipates that by the end of this year, RFID tracking will allow passengers to get real-time notifications of where their bags are located at all times throughout their journey. The use of RFID technology for baggage handling not only addresses the problem of bags ...

Why airlines loose thousands customers every year


What does an airline customer on family vacation feel when the bag with summer clothes doesn’t arrive at the destination? What does the customer think when his or her suitcase with business attire is delayed until after the meeting? Likely, customers will be disappointed and may book another airline next time. According to the SITA report, the airline industry reported 23.1 million mishandled bags in 2015, which resulted in a total cost for the industry of $2.3 billion. The report also indicates that the average baggage mishandling rate is 6.5 bags per a thousand. The mishandled bag rate (MBR), that includes bags that are lost, delayed, damaged, or stolen, has not dramatically changed over the past years. Delta Air Lines has one ...

RFID bag tag inlay costs decreased three times in the last decade


A lot of changes happened. Airlines have long found RFID too pricey, but the cost has dropped significantly. Currently, McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas pays only 12 cents for each RFID tag, down from 21.5 cents a decade ago. Traditional, paper bag tags cost the airport 3 cents. Now, the bag tags with embedded RFID inlay cost less than 10 cents each, including the cost of RFID inlay as low as 3.5 cents. The cost of a bag tag consists of the cost of a regular paper bag tag and the cost of a RFID inlay. With the matter of time, the costs of RFID inlays decreased dramatically. And further reduction continues. This attracts attention to RFID-based solutions as airlines ...

Air industry challenges of deploying a zoo of RFID tracking infrastructures worldwide


Airlines and airports do have different solutions for their baggage operations. However, most of them are local. Even RFID-based baggage solutions are tailor-made by some airlines/airports for their specific needs: airlines such as Delta, Qantas, and airports such as Hong Kong, Las Vegas. They all aim at resolving their own issues and covering their network and facilities. Instead of deploying a zoo of RFID tracking infrastructures worldwide, IATA recommends airports to deploy a common-use RFID tracking infrastructure to all airports and airlines. “It would be foolish to have every airline at a busy airport each introducing their own tracking solutions when the places being tracked are often common use,” said Andrew Price, IATA’s Head of Airport Operations. The most visible benefits for airports ...

Baggage tracking excellence through readability


In 2014, the airline industry passed the mark of 100,000 flights per day worldwide. The ever-increasing numbers of air passengers require improved baggage tracking that includes seamless tracking of the bag journey across multiple airlines and airports. The single most important parameter of successful baggage tracking is the level of bag tag readability. Every percent, or even a tenth of the percent, of readability impacts success greatly. If a major global airline handles 100 million pieces of luggage on an annual basis, the impact in numbers of bags becomes very evident. With a difference of only 1% in readability, the actual number of bags that remain unread reaches 1 million pieces of luggage. Even with a difference of only 0.1%, it still ...
