IATA resolution 753 initiates RFID revolution in air traffic
With 290 airlines, IATA represents 83 percent of all airlines worldwide. The industry association has now set the goal of using a resolution to launch a nationwide, RFID-based tracking system for air baggage among its members in the shortest possible time. The association offers numerous advantages for airports, airlines and passengers.
In an interview with RFID & Wireless IoT Global, Andrew Price, Head of Global Baggage Operations at IATA, explains why the airline industry has set the goal of large-scale installation of RFID tags, what positive effects the global transition will have and what standards and hardware are required to meet the industry's roll-out targets.
