Radio Frequency ID (RFID) for aviation

Simplifying the Business has closed the RFID project. Because the value of RFID is subject to the individual merits of each business case, there is no mandate for the universal adoption of RFID from IATA. IATA's position paper on RFID (pdf).

During the course of the StB RFID project, IATA conducted many trials and accumulated a great deal of information on the use of RFID. That information is available on this page.

Deriving from RFID, the new Baggage Improvement Program (BIP) provides the industry with solutions to address all causes of baggage mishandling.

For questions or assistance on the implementation of RFID technology, please email rfid@iata.org.
