Implementing Baggage Tracking through RFID and XML Messaging (Classroom, 3 days)


About

IATA Resolution 753 on baggage tracking aims to encourage airlines to reduce baggage mishandling by implementing cross-industry baggage tracking. This is unanimously supported by IATA Airline Members in the global deployment of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Modern baggage messaging standards are also encouraged to ensure accurate tracking of baggage in real-time. This course is targeted to baggage operations managers within airlines, airports and ground handlers who need to implement baggage tracking in the most effective and cost-efficient way across an airline route network and within individual airports.

Over 3 days, you will explore the different options to track baggage with a specific focus on RFID and learn how tracking data can be exchanged with other parties through the latest industry standards such as baggage XML messaging. You will also have hands-on practice of developing and refining your own baggage tracking implementation plan following the latest trends and best practices.

This course is available at IATA Training Centers and Regional Training Partner locations, and on-demand as in-house training.
