The Permanent Bag Tag, a Skyteam project
The Q Bag Tag is a permanent electronic bag tag designed to facilitate a faster and easier baggage check-in at domestic airports. There's no longer a need to attach a temporary bag tag each time you fly domestically - just drop your bags and go. What's more, if you check-in online or with your mobile before you arrive at the airport, you'll be able to go directly to the Bag Drop.
With a sleek design by Marc Newson, each tag contains world-first technology that synchronises your details on your boarding pass or Qantas card with your baggage using the RFID chip technology.Q Bag Tags can be purchased for $49.95 or 7,000 Frequent Flyer points.
Introduced by Quantas earlier last year, this idea of a permanent bag tag is now pushed by Skyteam. The alliance wants to make it a project for all its companies with a proof of concept financed by 75 000 € from AFKL. It would be the first time that a marketing idea and product development is done jointly as an alliance wide project.
