BagManager

Complete baggage management system providing real-time information

Overview

Every minute, 40 bags get mishandled worldwide. In 2015, that amounted to more than 23.1 million mishandled bags, costing the air transport industry US$2.3 billion.

More often than not, these bags go astray during the transfer process. By providing real-time information on baggage status, SITA BagManager cuts mishandled transfer rates by 20%, providing positive return on investment (ROI) from Day 1.

Suitable for airports, airlines and ground handlers, it provides industry-leading functionalities for loading, reconciling, tracking, tracing, and managing baggage operations. It’s also available through SITA’s ATI Cloud, providing quick implementation with no server equipment requirements onsite.

All of this from a single supplier – it’s no wonder SITA BagManager is installed in over 150 airports worldwide.

How it helps

BagManager is a baggage management application  for airlines, airports and ground handlers. It matches bags with departing passengers and tracks bags in real-time throughout the airports it’s deployed.

This functionality is increasingly critical as the air transport industry moves closer to adopting IATA Resolution 753 in 2018. The resolution requires all IATA member airlines to monitor and log the status of passenger bags through the major stages of their journey.

BagManager keeps track of when bags exchange hands between airlines and ground handlers, as well as airlines and airports. It also handles the tracking and monitoring of departure and arrival bags, and it supports interfaces to automated baggage tag readers.

Key features

  • Clear “Load” / “No load” instruction to users
  • Alerts users when actions are needed
  • Records position of bags and ULDs onboard the aircraft
  • Re-flights mishandled bags
  • “At a glance” dashboard for easy monitoring

Benefits

  • Reduced mishandled bag costs
  • Minimized departure delays
  • Improved customer service
  • Enhanced decision-making and staff effectiveness
  • Better security
