Approved (IATA) IATA during a meeting of the General Assembly, the fifth annual The seventy-unanimously adopted a resolution supporting the deployment of the global services of baggage tracing system (identification via radio waves) Radio-Frequency Identification.
The Assembly invited the public to apply modern standards to send messages about the luggage of passengers, to enhance the accuracy of tracking in real-time at key stages during the flight.
According to the latest statistics issued by the corporation (city), the proportion of lost luggage in 2018 less than 0.06% of the approximately 4.3 million transfer bag by the airlines. The proportion of lost luggage by 70% since 2007, and today re 99.9% of lost luggage to their owners within two days.

Under the resolution, adhere to the airlines a transition to the use of luggage tags with a board equipped with a system identification via radio waves, using the alerts system data identification via radio waves to activate the procedures in the airports or ground handling staff, to prevent the possibility of losing luggage.
And do not limit resolution any specific timetables. However, it is expected that the adoption of the system of identification via radio waves globally within four years.
Partnerships play a crucial role to succeed in this challenge. The resolution calls for airports to rapidly to use the technique of system identification through radio waves in the processes of delivery of luggage, and its application in their infrastructure and start the implementation of the modern standards of communications concerning the baggage.
The resolution also calls for ground handling staff to use the technique of System Identification via radio waves instead of tracers manual where possible.
Added de Johnny clash: “the application of tracking technology and the enhanced system of identification via radio waves, and the adoption of modern standards for baggage is a collective work, as should cooperate airlines and airports and the staff of ground handling to achieve its benefits, and enhancing customer satisfaction”.
