Paragon ID is pleased to announce that it has joined IATA’s Strategic Partnerships Program and will be actively involved in the RFID sub-working group within the Baggage Working Group.
The Baggage Working Group was established by the Joint Passenger Services Conference (JPSC) to review and develop recommended practices and resolutions for baggage operations. The RFID sub-working group has been introduced to work on the implementation of RAIN RFID baggage tracking, as recommended by the IATA AGM Resolution passed this June, and in conjunction with resolution 753 which aims to improve passenger experience and airline efficiency.
Andrew Price, global head of baggage services for IATA, says:
” We are very happy to welcome Paragon ID as our latest RFID strategic partner. RFID is a key topic in baggage at the moment.”
Well positioned to meet the aviation industry’s requirement for 100% quality, Paragon ID brings over 25 years of experience in the aviation industry and a unique end-to-end competence from RFID inlay design and manufacturing to the conversion into tags. Their specifically designed baggage tag and optimized RAIN RFID inlay have already been selected for their superior performance and quality by the first two large scale European deployments.
A leading provider of ticketing solutions for transport for over 100 years, Paragon ID has shown its capacity to accompany its customers in technological evolutions from paper to magnetic stripe to RFID and now mobile ticketing.
Konstantinos Lagios, Chief Commercial Officer at Paragon ID, says:
” We are very proud to become an IATA strategic partner and to be able to share our expertise. We look forward to collaborate more closely with the other members of the RFID sub-group to provide recommendations, guidance and training to member airlines. “
