With potential savings of 20 cents for every 10 cents spent on implementing RFID for baggage handling and tracking, now is the time to realize the benefits and close the gap in baggage performance. The RFID technology is expected to reduce mishandling rates for baggage by at least 25%, which means stress relief for the passenger and large savings for airlines and airports.
Enabling the passengers’ digital journey
76% of all passengers want baggage location status updates on their smart phones, so Lyngsoe Systems provides airlines and airports with the right, highly reliable baggage tracking data to support the request. The data comes from the Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ platform, which enables a digital journey for the passenger. Capturing real-time tracking data from all strategic hand-overs in the baggage journey, this can be shared with the passenger through the airline or airport app.
Increasing baggage handling capacity
Lyngsoe Systems helps airports solve their growing capacity issue by introducing RFID scanning in the baggage handling process. Globally, passenger numbers are expected to double within the next 15 years, so airports are under extreme pressure for expanding their capacity. They can either expand the BHS with new conveyors or introduce new scanning technology with better read rates. RFID has proven read rates of over 99% in baggage handling and is the most reliable and cost-effective technology to increase capacity and improve the baggage handling process.
Lyngsoe Systems help airlines in becoming compliant to IATA resolution 753. Under the Resolution, the IATA has mandated that all its members are to track baggage when they acquire a bag from the passenger, it is delivered to the aircraft, at custody changes between carriers, and at delivery to the passenger. The RFID baggage handling and tracking solution from Lyngsoe Systems utilize RFID scanning to comply with the resolution. With no running costs for manual scanning and no line of sight requirements, scan rates are high and costs are low, out-competing other scanning technologies.
Delta Airlines was the first airline to take the step into full RFID implementation for baggage handling, and it is no longer a matter of whether to go for RFID or not, but a matter of when. Airlines waiting too long will fall behind in the race to provide increased passenger services, better baggage handling, improved security, and operate at lower costs.
RFID has significantly impacted visibility, increased capacity and reduced mishandling of baggage for Delta Airlines, Hong Kong International Airport, Italy’s Milano Malpensa Airport, Lisbon Airport and Denmark’s Aalborg International Airport.
