Air baggage RFID tags Background

Barcode is not enough

Have you ever lost your air baggage? Thanks to Barcode technology and loop tag, according to IATA data in 2016, 3 billion bags were checked in, but only 5.74 bags in 1000 bags are mishandled. The mishandling rate is decreased from 69.7% in 2007 to 0.57% in 2016.

From 2007 to 2016, they paid over USD 27 billion for them. They predicated there will be 7 billion bags to be handled per year in next 15 years. So the cost of mishandling bags will be even bigger just for the added bags.

Why Air baggage RFID tag is an ideal choice for R753 ?

The arrival of R753 makes that RAIN RFID technology will a better choice than barcode. Ultra-high frequency UHF RFID tags for air baggage. In air baggage handling application, UHF RFID chip that are embedded in luggage tags can be used to track individual bags in real time as they pass through all the points in their journey. Since the radio waves used to read data from UHF RFID chips can pass through solid objects, tags can be read even they are hidden from view. The Passengers can check their bags status from mobile App. This will improve their satisfaction. While UHF air baggage tag will improve work efficiency of airplane staff.
