Global RFID bag tracking can save $3 billion by 2022

IATA and global IT provider SITA said the tracking rates of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology could reduce the number of mishandled bags by up to 25% and save the air transport industry over $3 billion by 2022, according to a paper released Oct. 19 at the IATA World Passenger Symposium in Dubai, UAE. For the air transport industry, RFID technology enables airports, airlines and ground handlers to keep track of bags at every step of the journey and ensure the right bag is loaded onto the correct flight, the report stated, adding the technology supports IATA’s Resolution 753 that requires by 2018 airlines keep track of every item of baggage from start to finish.
