Lost baggage: a serious challenge
Waiting for baggage at the baggage carousel, possibly in vain, causes millions of passengers around the world discomfort and stress every day. SITA’S Baggage Report informs about the number of mishandled bags: Between 2007 and the end of 2016. However, each lost or misrouted piece of luggage generates costs of around 100 dollars per suitcase or bag. In 2016 alone, these costs for airlines amounted to 2.1 billion dollars.
