An RFID tag will be assigned to each piece of luggage, so passengers can know, through the application, where they are
Secure the luggage roller in the "Arrivals" area of the airport. Fear the worst. Fix it again. In order, ask yourself if you need only the technical time to download them, if it is the case not to think about it too much, or to rush to the loss desk, to get on with the job. The Delta airline tries to eliminate this stress by allowing its customers to trace the suitcases via app.
It will work like this: at check-in, each bag will be assigned a label rFID, (Radio Frequency Identification) which will allow it to be traced via radio waves. The location will thus be available on the user application. At the beginning of the year, the company invested $ 50 million in RFID and the technology will be available in 84 airports throughout the United States.
"The moment passengers leave their suitcase, we want them to know that we check it every step of the way and that we work to eliminate any stress from the flight, one innovation at a time"Explains Bill Lentsch, senior vice president of the Atlanta-based airline, which manages 120 million bags per year.
