British Airways Offers RFID Luggage Tag
The United Kingdom's largest international airline has partnered with ViewTag to create a secure electronic bag tag.
Jul 22, 2019—
The ViewTag is a reusable tag that enables customers to tag their own bags before they arrive at an airport. The device's digital display shows the same flight information as traditional paper-based bag tags, according to the company. Using the British Airways mobile app, passengers can check in to receive their boarding pass and synchronize that information with their electronic bag tag via a BLE connection, using their smartphone. "By allowing passengers to transfer their information digitally before they arrive at the airport," said Richard Warther, ViewTag's CEO, in a prepared statement, "check-in is reduced to a matter of seconds."
British Airways' passengers can preorder the tags directly from the airline. The devices are being made available initially for £63 ($78). In addition to BLE functionality, the tags come with an E Ink display that shows a customer's flight information.
