MEET THE ONLY TWO SIDED ELECTRONIC BAG TAG

 

The eTag electronic bag tag system

This unique product allows passengers to check-in and tag bags securely away from the airport for the first time, completing the digital transformation of the check-in process.
Eliminate the negative passenger experience of them checking-in online from their smart phone or tablet, receiving digital boarding passes, only to be frustrated by having to still join long queues at the airport to check their bags in.
Using eTag, the on line check-in process is extended via the airline’s App to include bags. Passengers can now arrive at the airport with both their boarding pass and their bags tagged with the smart two sided eTag, ready to be dropped off at departures – in a fraction of the time.
