IATA I Industry Improvements in Baggage Mishandling at Airports


IATA, the International Air Transport Association, after various analyses, has published new data on the implementation with corrective baggage monitoring by airports and airlines.

After surveying 94 airports and 155 airlines, IATA deduced that 44% of the airports contacted have fully implemented Resolution 753 with a direct link to the monitoring of various tasks such as loading, acceptance, transfer and arrival, with a further 41% doing so.

At the end of the survey, the results found that 88% of airlines had fully adopted the resolution in North Asia and China.

In Europe and the Asia-Pacific area the percentage was 40%, in the two Americas 60% and in Africa 27%.

After this detailed data, it is shown that 75% of airports can now track baggage with resolution 753

Optical barcode scanning was the tracking technology in use and implemented in airports according to IATA with a percentage found of 73%, with RFID tracking called "most efficient" was found to be 27% of the airports to which the application was submitted.

In the case of the higher capacity airports, considering those that handle more than 40 million passengers, they favored IRFID with a percentage of 54%.

It should be noted that Resolution 753 had been repealed and adopted in June 2018 and analyzing the data between 15 years, between 2007 and 2022 the mishandling of baggage had decreased by 60%.

A report published in 2023 by air transport IT services provider SITA showed that airports were experiencing an uptick in terms of baggage mishandling.

The resumption of long-haul international flights as a result of the covid-19 pandemic, the shortage of skilled and qualified personnel and congestion at airports, according to SITA, were the causes of the malfunction.

IATA has also led the transition of the legacy Category B expensive baggage tracking messaging industry to modern messaging on XML standards with a pilot project set for 2024.

IATA's Director of Ground Operations said that the stages of traceability from baggage to baggage, loading, transfer to delivery will provide all the data for improvement with the monitoring that will reduce overall mishandling by helping airlines to reunite mistreated baggage with its owners even more quickly and the adoption of modern messaging will facilitate effective communication on passengers' baggage.

In addition to helping to reduce the number of mishandled baggage, the new implementations will be the basis for continued innovations in baggage handling systems.
