In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments are lifting travel restrictions and traffic volumes are recovering as passengers regain confidence in air travel. With higher traffic volumes comes increased baggage loads, more long-haul flights, and therefore more transfer baggage.
According to the SITA 2021 Baggage IT Insights, the number of mishandled baggage was 4.35 per one thousand passengers in 2021. This represnts a significant increase of 24.3% from the previous year. To keep up with these changes, it is essential for airlines and their stakeholders to adopt practical and efficient measures to reduce the costs associated with mishandled bags.
