Minimizing the baggage loss at airports


  • Katalin Emese Bite


Nowadays both airports and airlines are having serious problems related to Baggage Reconciliation. Many transfer baggages are directed to false destinations or simply getting lost during the flight procedures. Some of these however, get taken away by other passengers by mistake (due to similarities in baggages) or intentionally stolen. Irrespectively of whether the loss can be attributed to a human or a computer error, it is causing enormous losses for both the airlines and the airports. To avoid these problems a new technology must be introduced at airports. This technology is Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) that minimizes the false identification of the baggages.
