It might also be wise to invest in some luggage security such as a suitcase padlock
(PRWEB UK) 15 January 2013
The Department of Transport’s latest Air Travel Consumer Report claims that U.S. carriers posted a `mishandled baggage rate` of 2.64 per 1,000 passengers in November, a figure down from 2.66. The report also showed that this number makes it the lowest November on record for lost baggage.
Providing a comprehensive range of hand luggage, suitcases, laptop bags and travel accessories, the team behind Smart Luggage were naturally intrigued by the latest news. In response to these findings a representative from the firm has looked into why this might be the case.
“We’ve noticed that more and more airlines and airports have been using tracking technologies such as bar codes and electronic monitoring which may account for this dip in luggage loss. A new tracking device for consumers has also been designed and this could see the problem reduced even further.”
“To help limit the damage of this problem we would recommend sharing your belongings across those you are travelling with. Therefore if one person’s suitcase is lost or delayed, they will have enough basic items to see them through a few days. It might also be wise to invest in some luggage security such as a suitcase padlock.”
However, critics have suggested this fall in luggage loss may simply be down to people checking in fewer items. With baggage fees rising, people have been looking for ways to avoid extra costs at the airport.
