BagJourney

Track airline baggage like a parcel

Overview

SITA BagJourney is the only system that builds on SITA’s baggage data delivery services - BagMessage and Type-B - and their global coverage, to provide a precise picture of a bag’s current location, no matter how many airlines or airports handle it.

The system makes that information available, in a structured and easy way to consume, to airlines and airports who need to enhance passenger’s experience and reduce ground handling costs while complying with IATA’s baggage tracking resolution.

Bags are permanently tracked and therefore, in situations where they are mishandled, the service makes it easier to quickly recover and reunite them with their owners.

As the data collection is free of charge, BagJourney can become the core platform of a ready-to-go solution for airlines looking for a cost-effective way of fulfilling the IATA Resolution 753.

This product is available through SITA's ATI Cloud.

BagJourney helps airlines to comply with IATA resolution

753

How it helps

IATA Resolution 753 requires member airlines to maintain an accurate inventory of bags through the major stages of their journey including check-in, transfer between carriers, loading and delivery on arrival. Airlines also need to produce tracking manifests and exchange baggage tracking data with other stakeholders.

SITA BagJourney uses existing standard IATA baggage information messages (BIMs) to maintain the real time bag handling states that are delivered via the latest web application programming interfaces (APIs). The service is tailored for mobile applications where current baggage status can easily be understood by handling agents, customer service staff or passengers. The creation of manifests will also be automated.

BagJourney is integrated with WorldTracer® – the only global tracing and matching service of delayed bags. This integration allows inbound and other bags to be continually tracked, even if they’re mishandled, enabling airlines to reject mishandling charges by proving they are not at fault.
