Solving the Luggage Carousel Crisis
Did you know that in 2019 alone around 1.7 million pieces of luggage were mishandled or misdirected among 654 million travellers worldwide?
That is equivalent to 2.7 reports of lost or misdirected luggage for every 1,000 passengers!
Lost luggage is the bane of airport travel. It is an inconvenience that airports and airlines need to address. Improved luggage handling is not just about keeping your passengers happy. Lost luggage can also cost airports and airlines up to $2.6 billion!
Whatever the reason for losing or misdirecting luggage is, there is no doubt that smoother luggage handling is a must. Our ingenious luggage tracking system could be the answer you’re looking for!
This will make the passenger airline experience better.
What Causes Baggage Mishandling?
The airport is a busy place with millions of travellers (and airport or airline staff) present at any given time. It is chaotic and hectic! In most cases, it is passengers who are in a hurry to catch their next flight or are distracted while on the phone or talking to someone else who lose track of their luggage.
While the statistics for lost luggage worldwide has decreased every year over the past decade or so – due to the concerted efforts of airlines and airports to improve luggage tracking – the problem remains persistent. Other causes of lost or mishandled luggage include loading/offloading errors and failures, and transfer-related incidents at the airport.
According to Business Travelers, the occurrence of airport theft is also a real and debilitating one. Thousands of pieces of luggage are stolen every year, especially in the baggage reclaim areas and security zones. With a significant amount of stolen bags, airport officials need to tighten their security and find a more efficient way to track lost or stolen luggage. It is their duty to ensure that passengers’ possessions are safe within the airport premises.
The worst thing that can happen when you’re about to go on a vacation is having to deal with lost luggage!
