Copenhagen Airport and RFID?

Where is Copenhagen airport when we ask about Radio Frequent IDentification technology? A Thursday in December, Kim Abildgaard had the pleasure to share a lunch with Karsten Madsen, Head of Baggage Automation & Technology at Copenhagen Airport. The occasion was that Karsten had won the drawing of the headphones from our newsletter sign-up competition, and we had the pleasure to hand-over the gift – thanks to all of you who participated.  At the same time we had a conversation about RIFD and Copenhagen Airports thoughts about this. We are happy to get the opportunity to present a statement from someone who has not yet bought into the Radio Frequent Identification (RFID) technology in baggage handling and tracking.  At Copenhagen Airport, RFID technology is not yet in baggage operation, but it is not a question of if it will. Karsten Madsen tells that in any new baggage project, RFID will be part of the specification of requirements. Frankly, it is not a decision driven by themselves alone, as they need other airports to send baggage with RFID tags as well. So, when Copenhagen Airport sees RFID technology in action is uncertain, it will happen but it also depends on other airports adopting […]

Patented intelligence in RFID baggage handling

Lyngsoe Systems are happy to announce a patent in the Airport and Airline business regarding the Lyngsoe Sortation Reader™. This emphasizes Lyngsoe Systems as a first mover technology wise as the patented Sortation Reader is the first of its kind to utilize advanced software algorithms to uniquely match the bag with the correct RFID baggage tag. It intelligently eliminates RFID cross-readings from other nearby RFID tags and achieving very high performance on the read rate. The Sortation Reader does not require intrusive and “difficult to install” RF shielding. When passenger satisfaction and flawless handling goes hand in hand Behind the patent is an organization Lyngsoe Systems whose purpose is to offer a specific turnkey solution, so modern airports can meet the demands in the baggage handling operation with the goal to deliver an extensive service to passengers and at the same time running a cost-effective and profitable business. Meanwhile preparation for future demands where the capacity will be pushed to the limit with an increasing number of travelers and a rising demand for accurate information about baggage. Handling the baggage is a key area in any airport where loading and transfer times represent a key factor in competing for the business. […]

IATA mandates RFID in all baggage tags

The IATA has publically announced it will mandate that RFID is integrated into all baggage tags. At the “Director General’s report on the Air Transport Industry,” Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO, announced: “We’ve got one year to develop a global deployment plan that will see IATA standard RFID inlays in all baggage tags. During that time we will align our partners in the value chain—especially airports—so that we can achieve our industry’s vision to begin rolling this out from 2020.” This exciting news moves the aviation industry to the next level. IATA has proven its visionary approach to technology and has helped the industry future-proof its baggage operations. The IATA mandate has been announced so airlines can meet passengers’ expectations for real-time tracking. Implementing RFID for baggage tracking and handling not only benefits passengers with increased tracking capabilities and less mishandling, but also helps airlines and airports significantly improve their operations. Due to very high read rates, automated processes and cost-effective implementation, RFID helps increase capacity within existing baggage handling systems and significantly improves baggage processes.From June this year, IATA also mandated resolution 753, requiring most airlines to increase tracking capabilities. RFID is the most cost-effective way to comply with the new […]

Lyngsoe Systems launch RFID Belt Loader Reader

Lyngsoe Systems, world-leading RFID integrator, is launching the Belt Loader Reader, a discreet, innovative and intelligent RAIN RFID reader solution designed to track and reconcile baggage when loading and offloading aircraft with belt loaders. Providing departure and arrival scanning of baggage loaded and off-loaded into aircraft using belt loaders, the Lyngsoe Systems’ Belt Loader Reader uses RFID technology (radio frequency identification) for automatic reconciliation and positive passenger bag match (PPBM) before loading baggage onto an aircraft. The Belt Loader Reader is compliant to the new IATA (International Air Transport Association) Resolution 753, which requires airlines to demonstrate delivery and acquisition of baggage when custody changes, provide an inventory of bags upon departure and be capable of exchanging such information. Michael Vistisen, head of Lyngsoe Systems’ Airport Business Unit, said: “Designed to reduce incidents of mishandled baggage, speed up operations and support airlines to be compliant with IATA Resolution 753, our Belt Loader  Reader is easily integrated with baggage reconciliation systems. It speeds up reconciliation by using real-time information to monitor all bags and provide instant feedback to the ramp personnel on, whether a bag is authorized for loading or not.” Already in use by customers, the Belt Loader Reader also enables […]

RFID improves baggage performance to meet demands from increased passenger growth

Lyngsoe Systems RFID tracking solutions are so innovative and flexible with no boundaries regarding which industries it can benefit. We have installations within postal, airports, library, logistics and healthcare. Whenever you want to keep track of items from A to B and raise efficiency we can help from planning to developing and implementing always providing quality service. When Milan Malpensa Airport in Italy experienced a heavy increase in the number of passengers, it meant capacity growth and increased efficiency requirements. By advancing their baggage performance with our RFID platform Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™, manual sortation was eliminated and improvement was recorded in transparency and the read rate in the baggage handling system from 93% to 100%.  Read how we did it in our Milan Malpensa case story.
