Getting Ready for the Connected Bag

The airline industry has made tremendous strides in baggage handling over the last eight years, saving a collective $18 billion by investing in new technology and processes for moving passengers’ luggage. A particular focus has been aimed at bags transferring between flights, which is an increasingly important element of many airlines’ business, especially the fast-growing Middle East carriers.

The next step is end-to-end tracking of baggage. Experts will join the webinar to discuss the results of the 2015 SITA/ATW Baggage Report and how baggage performance can be a key differentiator in a competitive market, looking at the best practices of several airlines.

Speakers

  • Andrew Price, Head of Airport Operations Management, IATA
  • Nick Gates, Baggage Portfolio Director, SITA
  • Matthew Davies, General Manager Global airports, Etihad Airways
