Aars, Denmark, February 15, 2017] – Lyngsoe Systems, world-leading RFID integrator, is launching the Belt Loader Reader, a discreet, innovative and intelligent RAIN RFID reader solution designed to track and reconcile baggage when loading and offloading aircraft with belt loaders.
Providing departure and arrival scanning of baggage loaded and off-loaded into aircraft using belt loaders, the Lyngsoe Systems’ Belt Loader Reader uses RFID technology (radio frequency identification) for automatic reconciliation and positive passenger bag match (PPBM) before loading baggage onto an aircraft.
The Belt Loader Reader is compliant to the new IATA (International Air Transport Association) Resolution 753, which requires airlines to demonstrate delivery and acquisition of baggage when custody changes, provide an inventory of bags upon departure and be capable of exchanging such information.
Michael Vistisen, head of Lyngsoe Systems’ Airport Business Unit, said: “Designed to reduce incidents of mishandled baggage, speed up operations and support airlines to be compliant with IATA Resolution 753, our Belt Loader Reader is easily integrated with baggage reconciliation systems. It speeds up reconciliation by using real-time information to monitor all bags and provide instant feedback to the ramp personnel on, whether a bag is authorized for loading or not.”
Already in use by customers, the Belt Loader Reader also enables airlines to provide enriched baggage location information to their passengers, such as automatically providing data when a bag has been loaded onto the correct flight.
One customer states, “RFID technology allows us to set a new standard for more transparent, interactive tracking of our baggage handling processes.”
Built for harsh conditions, Lyngsoe Systems’ Belt Loader Reader enables airlines and airports to meet compliance demands to IATA Resolution 753, which comes into effect in June 2018.
Andrew Price, Head of Global Baggage Operations, IATA, said: “Lyngsoe Systems’ RFID Belt Loader Reader is one of a number of RFID tracking points that can help airlines comply with IATA Resolution 753, the aim of which is to help airlines reduce the cost of mishandled baggage and improve efficiency of baggage handling.”
