Bag Tracking by SITA at Istanbul New Airport

Istanbul New Airport has appointed SITA to implement its baggage tracking solution allowing the airlines to meet IATA Resolution 753’s baggage tracking requirements by providing information on every single bag’s location as on route through the airport from day one.

The airport, due to open in 2018, upon development of four additional segments, will have a passenger capacity exceeding 200 million passengers annually and will be required to track more than 750,000 bags an hour.

Baggage management by airlines globally improved in 2016, as the industry focused on technology investments according to the SITA’s Baggage Report 2017. In addition, the report mentioned the rate of mishandled bags was 5.73 bags per thousand passengers in 2016, down 12.25 percent from 2015 and the lowest ever recorded.
