Identiv Eases the Stress of Air Travel with New UHF RFID Luggage Tags

Identiv’s new customer-centric UHF RFID Luggage Tags streamline the process for air travelers, saving valuable time at check-in, while also ensuring a secure journey for all passenger luggage. Identiv is easing the stress of air travel (but you still might need a drink or two once you’re on the plane).

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recently adopted a resolution supporting the global deployment of radio frequency identification (RFID) tracking for checked airline baggage. The resolution serves as the latest step toward global baggage tracking with ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID tags on passengers’ luggage. Early UHF RFID adoption has shown baggage read rates rise to 99.5% while some airports have reported reduced mishandling rates by ~15%.

Our IATA standard, Auburn University category U-certified UHF RFID Luggage Tags are labels that integrate into the free tags distributed by airlines at their respective baggage desks; to use, no extra steps are required of passengers beyond attaching the free tag to their luggage. The new tags benefit the overall experience for air travelers, increasing the speed of baggage acceptance and simplifying the bag-drop process. At the same time, the perception of participating airlines also improves, increasing baggage recovery opportunities while making baggage recovery processes more efficient.

Identiv’s UHF RFID Luggage Tags are available now at shop.identiv.com. For more information on Identiv’s complete RFID, NFC, and inlay transponder portfolio, visit identiv.com/products/rfid-nfc-inlays.
