Longest chance starts negotiations on “Hand-to-Hand” RFID baggage tracking system with airlines
On 23rd February 2016, our team was invited to visit and discuss the baggage operations in the Alitalia airline in Rome, Italy. The Longest Chance team presented the Hand-to-Hand RFID Baggage Tracking System and outlined its advantages for optimizing baggage operations, reducing baggage mishandling, and setting a higher level of passenger satisfaction.
After successful pilot project fulfilled in cooperation with IATA at the end of last year, the Longest Chance team started another round of informing the air industry about the results of the pilot project, its benefits and efficiency for airlines and airports. After the interest expressed by the air industry players, we started visits and talks around the world.
Our solution draws attention both airlines and airports, as it can solve different issues in their operations with baggage.
On February 19th, 2016, the representative of Delta Air Lines visited Longest Chance to learn in detail the Hand-to-Hand RFID Baggage Tracking System and its potential advantages for baggage operations in the airline’s international flights. The meeting allowed the participants to check out the RFID infrastructure established for the pilot project in Sheremetyevo airport (Moscow, Russia). Delta Air Lines is well known as one of the most cutting-edge airlines with up-to-date technologies including RFID solutions. As the number of enplaned passenger grows, and the volumes of baggage flow are getting bigger, the air industry finally has to find the solution to make baggage processes smoother and safer. The Hand-to-Hand RFID Baggage Tracking System (HHRBTS) helps streamline baggage handling for airlines thus giving the opportunity for substantial financial savings on baggage mishandling and making baggage operations in full control.
On January 22, on the invitation of the Fiumicino airport (Rome, Italy), the Longest Chance team presented the Hand-to-Hand RFID Baggage Tracking System and its potential involvement in baggage handling in airports.Even more advantages the Hand-to-Hand RFID Baggage Tracking System shows for airlines that want to minimize their mishandling, optimize baggage operations, and improve the passenger experience.
With this regard, on December 24, on the invitation of Pegasus Airlines (Istanbul, Turkey), the Longest Chance team presented the Hand-to-Hand RFID Baggage Tracking System. Thus the air industry shows ever-growing interest to the new RFID solutions which are going to finally replace the obsolete barcode technologies in baggage tracking, taking into account the IATA Resolution 753 effective June 2018.
