With the BAGTAG Passenger Solution, Icelandair is streamlining operations, reducing environmental impact, and ultimately providing passengers with a hassle-free travel experience. The electronic bag tags will display all relevant travel information, ensuring a smooth journey from check-in to destination.
This move also aligns with Icelandair’s broader sustainability goals. By reducing the use of paper tags, the airline is contributing to a more eco-conscious travel industry.
“This collaboration marks a significant stride in providing passengers with a seamless and efficient check-in process, aligning perfectly with Icelandair’s commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction. It also makes Icelandair the first airline to rollout electronic bag tags for both crew and passengers, innovating their entire baggage process. We can’t way to see everything in place.” said Jasper Quak, Managing Director of BAGTAG.
