British Airways tests electronic tags for airline baggage

Airlines may use electronic tags for luggage labeling instead of paper versions in the future. British Airways is using a Designworks-created electronic baggage tag as part of a trial, with information able to be updated on the e-paper display wirelessly using a smartphone app and an NFC or Bluetooth connection, allowing it to be used multiple times and potentially saving waste. If successful, British Airwars will provide larger quantities of tags to customers, which could also potentially be reused by other airlines.
