According to 2018 Air Transport Industry Insights: The Baggage Report, 5.57 bags are mishandled on average per every 1,000 fliers globally, totaling 22.7 million lost bags in 2017 alone.

Mistakes like this cost the air transportation industry $2.3 billion USD in 2017. In an age where consumers have more travel options than ever, the most successful airlines and airports will be the ones that track passenger-checked baggage in real time.

RAIN RFID lets airports and airlines accurately track bags from check-in, ground transfer, and on and off airplanes—delivering fast and accurate data about bags as they move through automated systems.  Airlines can then share that information with their passengers to let them fly stress free.

RAIN RFID luggage tracking solutions built on the Impinj platform locate and identify bags at every step of their journey, ensuring that the right items are headed to the right destinations every time. This information can also help airlines and airports identify bottlenecks and trouble areas for improved baggage handling and operational efficiency.


How it Works


Impinj tag chips are in bag tags.


As luggage is loaded and unloaded, strategically positioned readers locate and identify luggage.


Connect accurate, real-time data to your enterprise system and other systems, tracking luggage as its transferred. 

According to a SITA/IATA business case, RAIN RFID baggage tracking solutions could reduce the number of mishandled bags by up to 25% by 2022, with an estimated combined savings of $3 billion USD to the air transport industry over the next 7 years.

  • Reduce the risk of mishandled or lost luggage
    Nothing puts a damper on a trip like lost luggage. Ensure that bags arrive where and when customers do by tracking their location and identity in real time.

Airlines that have implemented a RAIN RFID tracking system, such as Delta Air Lines, have reported a 99.9% success rate for reading bags tagged with RAIN RFID.
  • Improve the passenger experience
    Real-time tracking provides the transparency and visibility customers need to fly with confidence and helps improve the perception of baggage handling at both the airline and airport level. With more travelers than ever, and more airlines to choose from, it’s imperative that businesses not only meet but exceed consumer expectations to stay competitive.
