Can you please let me know of a few RFID airline baggage tag manufacturers?
Almost any passive UHF transponder can be inserted into a paper luggage tag for tracking purposes. For example, Hong Kong’s International Airport has been using Avery Dennison’s AD-833 passive UHF RFID inlays, based on the ISO 18000-6C air-interface protocol standard (see Hong Kong Airport Says It Now Uses Only RFID Baggage Tags). Other airports and airlines are using similar inlays. Vanguard ID Systems makes a reusable luggage tag (see Reusable Electronic Baggage Tag Powered by RFID), which is being used by Alaska Airlines (see Alaska Airlines Passengers Take Electronic Luggage Tags for Test Flight).
I hope this answers your question, and I look forward to seeing you at RFID Journal LIVE! in May.
