Achieve improved cargo and baggage handling, equipment maintenance, regulatory compliance, and customer satisfaction.

How RFID Benefits the Aviation Industry

The aviation industry increasingly benefits from item-level RFID technology in a number of significant ways. For example, RFID inlays enable faster, more precise tracking of baggage and cargo, leading to enhanced customer satisfaction; while also bringing greater efficiency to maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations.

Improved labor efficiency and safety protocols are also on the aviation industry radar. For example, RFID can be used to automate processes involved in determining whether each airplane seat has its life vest in place underneath, that passenger oxygen systems are intact and up to date, and that in-flight medical kits are replenished and sealed, etc. RFID technology also has important security implications for the aviation industry.
