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 and airlines resulting from common use RFID tracking infrastructure are as follows: Provide reliable end to end baggage tracking for any number of airlines at point to point and transfer flights Reduce the investments in RFID infrastructure and maintenance costs Improve baggage handling performance and reduce mishandling Be a key component of the standard IATA baggage Services SLA components between airlines and airports This is what Longest Chance developed in collaboration with IATA and successfully piloted at the end of 2015: especially for the requirements of IATA Resolution 753. The Hand-to-hand RFID baggage tracking system by Longest Chance is flexible, easy to deploy, common-use, and pro-active. The system is available for all airlines and airports. This system allows airports and airlines to avoid creating multiple, incompatible, and local solutions. The highest level of bag tag readability at 99.99%, incredible scalability, and pro-active approach – all those excellent features were checked and approved by IATA and recommended for use in the air industry.
