During these challenging times, staying connected matters more than ever. The spreading of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has significant implications for airports, airlines and their customers. The aviation industry is facing challenges that we’ve never seen before, now is the time to work together and plan ahead for the future. That’s why Avery Dennison is partnering up with SICK, Inc. and would like to invite you to join a FREE webinar session to learn more about the impact of RFID on the aviation industry. Join us as we set the record straight regarding RFID bag tags and address the myths surrounding RFID.

Over the past few years, the use of RFID technology for tracking baggage has evolved steadily. As this technology is deployed system-wide by major US airlines and adopted at more airports, RFID has been selected as the ideal technology by the IATA association for future baggage tags. RFID has proven to improve read rates of baggage tags, leading to large reductions in baggage mishandling, thereby removing lost baggage and its associated costs.

Join us in our webinar to learn about:

  • What’s true and not true in RFID baggage tags
  • Best ways to deploy the technology
  • What components are necessary
  • Why RFID inlay quality matters
