Safe Landing for Luggage: SMART RFID for Airports


Published on

No more lost luggage at airports. No more lost money of airports and airplanes. No more time and nerves lost by passengers. Use RFID to monitor and track baggage in real time as it is successfully tested all around the world way for improving passengers services as well as filling strict norm imposed by IATA in 753 resolution.

Safe Landing for Luggage: SMART RFID for Airports

  2. 2. Lost luggage – one of the biggest problem of every airport. Only in 2015, over 23 millions of bags and suitcases were lost or mishandled. 1 disappointing surprise of lost luggage happens to 1 of 150 passengers. 6,5 suitcases are lost for every 1000 passengers. CUT WINGS LOSSES GENERATE COSTS
  3. 3. How is baggage lost? It doesn’t take much. Just • typical employee’s omission, • small damage of barcode, • unfortunate baggage placing on line, • too big gap between barcode and scanner. Majority of lost luggace cases results from employees’ mistakes. These are the errors that can be eiminated. CUT WINGS LOSSES GENERATE COSTS
  4. 4. Every road of suitcase is more than complicated. CUT WINGS LOSSES GENERATE COSTS
  5. 5. The most often reasons of baggage transfer delays between airports. CUT WINGS LOSSES GENERATE COSTS Mistakes at luggage check-in Luggage load failures Mistakes at luggage load Mistakes at luggage reclaim Restrictions on luggage weight / Airport regulations Luggage swap Wrong tagging
  6. 6. Lost baggage = lost: • money needed for an extra baggage transfer and amends for passenger, • good brand image of airport and/or airline, • passenger’s time and patience. CUT WINGS LOSSES GENERATE COSTS
  7. 7. Is it really impossible to solve baggage problem? Does such delicate issue have to rely on risky barcodes? Should the fate of passenger’s baggage depend on correct baggage barcode scan? Is there no possibility for real-time baggage tracking? TILTING AT WINDMILLS? THE UNSOLVABLE PROBLEM?
  8. 8. RFID: (R)EVOLUTION IS IN THE AIR RFID technology uses radio waves for immediate, precise group identification of even hundreds of tags at once. It is the last and most perfect chain in the identification development. It has no disadvantages of previous solutions, while offering a completely new quality.
  9. 9. RFID technology is used at airport for a decade. And despite the growth of passengers number, it brings positive results. TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE RFID becomes the standard solution General number of passengers (bln) General number of mishandled baggages (mln) General number of mishandled baggage for 1000 passengers
  10. 10. 97% passengers own mobile device. 66% of them claim that they would use mobile application to track their baggage. 66% airlines declare implementing such feature in 2017. Answer to passengers’ expectations… TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE
  11. 11. IATA 753 Resolution (International Air Transport Association) imposes on all airlines the duty of monitoring of EVERY baggage since check-in to reclaim. IATA recommends RFID technology as the most suitable for implementing 753 Resolution. …and law regulations TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE
  12. 12. Aerospace experts agree: not only has RFID already succeeded in bringing improvements at airports, but it has also still a lot to offer for further optimizations of airport processes. In 2007-2016 RFID helped to reduce 50% of lost luggage. It is equal to 22,4 bln $ savings. To 2022, RFID may decrease the percentage of lost luggage by 25%. Aerospace industry will save over 3 bln dollars. Promising forecasts TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE
  13. 13. Advantages from implementing RFID: processes optimization: check-in, search, transfer and reclaim, fast and accurate data acquisition, match with regulations on passengers’ safety and comfort. TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE RFID becomes the standard solution
  14. 14. The great advantage of RFID is automatic identification of even up to several hundreds items at once. Technology needs only 1 second for this. IDENTIFICATION ON THE FLY BAGGAGE TRACKING No need for separate identification of every single suitcase or bag. Mass-scale identification is done automatically.
  15. 15. RFID allows for identification of objects or items that are moving at several kilometers per hour. RFID will work perfectly fine for error-free recognition of suitcases and bags placed: in sorting on line in baggage reclaim on trolley. IDENTIFICATION ON THE FLY BAGGAGE TRACKING
  16. 16. RFID technology allows for baggage identification from 8 meters. No more need for visual contact between reader and baggage. It is possible to track any baggage in real time. At any moment every suitcase can be localized. To find it, only smartphone is needed. IDENTIFICATION ON THE FLY BAGGAGE TRACKING
  17. 17. To enjoy RFID advantages, only these parts are needed: CLEARED FOR LAUNCH DESIGN AND ASSEMBLY OF RFID SYSTEM RFID tags used on baggage or airport inventory RFID reader (fixed and mobile) RFID antennas
  18. 18. How does SMART RFID work at airports? CLEARED FOR LAUNCH
  19. 19. CLEARED FOR LAUNCH How does SMART RFID work at airports?
  20. 20. Delta Airlines allows passengers to mark their own baggage with RFID tags. By investing 50 mln $ in 4600 scanners, 3800 RFID printers and 600 RFID portals at 344 airports, this airline wants to provide its passengers with maximum comfort. Good practice TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE
  21. 21. AirFrance KLM uses tags for tracking baggages in real time. Both passengers and staff always know, where suitcase and bag is. Good practice TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE
  22. 22. Quantas Airways implemented board cards with RFID tags. Service customer was accelerated (from 10 to 2,5 minutes) and effectively linked baggage with its owner. Thanks to that, airline staff makes less mistakes with baggage mishandling or losing it. Good practice TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE
  23. 23. Jetstar Australia installs RFID tags in life vests, put under passengers’ seats. Steward should only walk through aisle to be certain that all life vests are on board. Good practice TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE
  24. 24. With RFID it is possible to perform stock-taking of: • vehicles and devices used by airport staff; • aerospace parts. SOUND-SPEED STOCK-TAKING EVERYTHING ON ITS PLACE
  25. 25. Boening 737 has tags installed on aerospace parts so stack-taking is easy and parts tracking can be launched at any time. The supply chain flexibility has increased while the costs of service and maintance – have decreased. Good practice TECHNOLOGY ON THE RISE
