Eindhoven Airport in the Netherlands has announced the successful completion of its ‘bag recognition’ test.

The new baggage check-in technology was tested at the airport from August to December 2020 by baggage identification specialist BagsID and logistics automation company Vanderlande.

Eindhoven Airport stated that it has decided to extend the pilot until 2023 in order to test the technology even more thoroughly and extensively.

According to BagsID, Eindhoven is the world’s first airport to conduct such trials.

When compared to scanning baggage tags, this technology is more precise, environmentally friendly and cheaper for the purpose of checking in hold baggage.

The technology will provide notifications to passengers in connection with the status and location of their luggage.

This new way of checking in will eliminate the need for luggage tags, which at times get attached incorrectly or become detached from the suitcase, thus ensuring higher levels of accuracy.

Furthermore, it will discard the use of luggage tag and label printers, making the airport more environmentally friendly.
