As those who've ever lost their luggage while flying know, the aftermath can be unbelievably frustrating; however the innovative feature that's being incorporated into Delta Airlines baggage tags will work to prevent it from happening.
It works by pairing with the American travel company's app, which is linked to Radio Frequency Identification tags. Although the change won't be enacted until April, it has claimed that the new Delta Airlines baggage tags have resulted in a 99.9% accuracy rate so far.
Once the trackers are implemented in the brand's 84 airports, the senors will be able to quickly pick up if a bag is headed on the wrong flight -- with the belt shutting down the instant it senses something amiss. Not only that, but travelers can use the app, which will soon have helpful push notifications, to see where their bag is on the ground and when it was loaded into a plane.
