Baggage Working Group (BWG)
Join the ongoing discussions of the Baggage Working Group at the BWG 28 meeting, to be held October 8, 9 and 10 in Prague, Czech Republic.
Baggage Working Group
IATA Baggage Working Group (BWG) is established by the Airport Services Committee (ASC) to review and develop recommendations into a form that can be adopted by the ASC and eventually the Passenger Services Conference (PSC) as recommended practices or resolutions.
The majority of these changes occur from examination of RP1745, RP 1800 and other related Recommended Practices such as RP 1740C that addresses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and its technological requirements.
The BWG is open to all IATA member airlines, ATA member airlines, ACI (Airports) members and the participants in the IATA Strategic Partnership Program with an interest in Baggage Management and related issues.
