SITA Bag Manager is a baggage management and reconciliation system that helps airlines, airports and ground handlers reconcile, track, and manage baggage. It matches bags with departing passengers and tracks bags in real time throughout the airport.

SITA Bag Manager tracks every bag that is loaded onto a plane, a ULD or a cart. It scans and evaluates the characteristics of each bag against the flight parameters to ensure bags are loaded onto the right plane. Checking that bags are loaded correctly reduces the number that go astray.
