Crisplant publishes white paper on IATA Resolution 753

Crisplant, part of the Beumer Group and a supplier of automated baggage handling systems (BHS), has published a white paper outlining the implications of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Resolution 753 for airports, airlines and baggage handling companies.

Resolution 753 effectively states that airlines must bear the ultimate responsibility for ensuring that each bag is delivered to the correct passenger. As any baggage handling process also involves airport operators and baggage handling companies, the airlines will need to work closely with these stakeholders to implement any changes that are required to comply with Resolution 753 before June 2018.

Klaus Schäfer, managing director, Crisplant, said, “This resolution is intended to minimize the number of lost or misrouted items of baggage. So while airlines and airports may need to invest in upgrades to their existing baggage handling equipment and controls, this can also be seen as an opportunity for all stakeholders to drive down costs.”  

The white paper considers a number of baggage handling technologies, ranging from manual scanning to RFID bag-tags, and suggests what upgrade may be necessary to ensure compliance. It also discusses the challenges and options that stakeholders will need to consider when installing new equipment and controls to deliver the transparency required across different control systems.

The white paper was written by Kim Madsen, senior system manager, software, at Crisplant, with the aim of helping airline and airport operations executives, airport design consultants and baggage handling executives to combine compliance with the resolution and cost savings, leading to improved passenger satisfaction ratings.

The white paper is available from the Beumer Group.
