The chosen partner for bag tags
A growing and changing demand
According to the International Transport Air Association (IATA), traveler numbers should reach 4.0 billion by 2024, exceeding pre-COVID-19 levels (103% of the 2019 total).
The forecast is based on key factors including the emerging middle class in developing countries, diverging demographic outlooks, further liberalisation of aviation markets, and climate change.
Although passengers have returned to air travel post COVID-19, their habits and expectations have changed, accelerating the need for airports and airlines to improve efficiencies.
The industry is quickly adapting and implementing new initiatives supported by the latest technologies including the improvement in check-in, bag drop-off and boarding processes as well as offering their passengers the ability to track their luggage in real-time.
IATA Resolution 753 - RFID baggage tracking
In June 18, IATA voted to develop a standard within one year for using RFID to track bags with the objective to roll out the technology globally in 2020. RFID was selected over other tracking solutions based on the reliability, maturity, widespread availability and cost of the technology. IATA estimates that airlines and airports using RFID technology can achieve 99.98% bag scan accuracy.
Paragon ID, through its subsidiary Security Label is the largest bag tags provider in Europe, Middle East & Africa. The company is also the largest RFID inlay manufacturer in Europe and has developed a RFID bag tag in line with IATA requirements.
The company is ARC quality certified and its RFID inlay dedicated to bag tags has also received ARC accreditation.
