For example, the Early Baggage Arrival alert will inform customers if their bag arrived before them, and will direct them to the right baggage service office for pick-up.

 
The Late Baggage Arrival alert does the same for bags that will be arriving on a later flight.

 

Instead of waiting unwittingly at the carrousel, fliers will be instructed to proceed directly to the baggage service office for an update on their baggage arrival when traveling internationally.

 
On domestic flights, customers will receive a Mobile Baggage Order on their mobile device that will ask for delivery details and a bag description, to expedite the process and spare travelers from stopping at the baggage office at the airport.

 
Fliers can also take matters into their own hands with a portable baggage tracker like Trakdot, a small device placed inside the check baggage that works with the user’s mobile phone. Upon arrival at their destination, the device will send the owner an SMS and email on its whereabouts.
