Designworks partnered with British Airways to make the new tags

Waiting for paper tags to check your bags at the airport could soon be a thing of the past. 

Designworks has come up with a new way to tag luggage with electronic Bag Tags. This eliminates the need for a bag check where paper tags are printed out and attached to luggage each time you travel, since these electronic tags can be used over and over again. 

This is how it works: the electronic tag is attached to a piece of luggage, and once checked in,  the flyer hovers their smartphone over the tag. This updates the tag with a barcode, which contains the flight details and where the bag should go. 


From there, the bag is simply taken to the bag drop, where it's scanned and placed on the correct plane. This leaves the flyer plenty of time to go through security instead of waiting to have paper tags printed. 

Designworks partnered with British Airways to make the new tags. 

If the tags were to catch on, they could cut paper waste each time a flyer travels, and can save time at the bag check by simply dropping luggage off with the appropriate details already in place.
