It is estimated that a whopping 26 million bags are lost each year. That being said, lost luggage may soon be a thing of the past—thanks to a new tracking system.
Some companies and airlines are developing a digital tag and tracking device that will eventually replace paper tags. This tracking system will allow travellers to easily locate lost luggage through the use of a smartphone app. It will also make the checking-in process quicker.
“Our aim is to take the stress out of travel and put you in control of your bag,” said David van Hoytema, a co-founder of FastTrack Company. Air France-KLM has joined forces with FastTrack to develop a tracking system that works through a smartphone app.
British Airlines, and Air France-KLM hope to have their systems in place by the end of the year.
