BagManager | SITA

 

Overview

Every minute, 40 bags get mishandled worldwide. In 2017, that amounted to more than 22.7 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.

BagTrac is a new option for airlines challenged with meeting the requirements of IATA Resolution 753. BagTrac addresses the key area of arrivals and transfer baggage tracking. Automatic tag readers (ATRs) are installed over passenger claim belts and transfer induction belts where they record tag numbers as bags pass the ATRs. The tracking data gathered allows BagManager to monitor arrival baggage and record first and last bag times and forward the data to an airline or BagJourney for long term storage.

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 200 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
