What happens to my bag at the airport?

If you’ve ever left a bag at the airport, worried that your bag hasn’t made it onto the plane, or simply wish to avoid the carousel chaos, then gather round, we’ve got news.

Serko has announced its new feature known as ‘Bag Tracker’ that allows travellers to use Serko Mobile to keep stock of where their bag is.

To use the new Bag Tracker feature, travellers simply ‘pair’ their tags with Serko Mobile and then drop the tags into their luggage. Serko Mobile can track up to three tags simultaneously.

“Serko Mobile users no longer have to wonder whether their bags have made it onto the plane or fight the queues at the luggage carousel, as the app will now tell them exactly how far away their bags are at any point in time,” Serko’s CEO Darrin Grafton said.

“The Bag Tracker feature is really easy to use and is another way that Serko is helping to transform business travel, making it less stressful and more productive for our customers.”

The new Bag Tracker feature operates in two modes: ‘Find My Bag’ which tells users how far away their bags are and if they are in range, which can be up to 80 metres, and ‘Carousel Mode’, that alerts the user when their bag comes into range on the carousel, so that they don’t have to fight the crowd.

Bag Tracker will be available for iPhone users of Serko Mobile in late September 2015. Users can purchase bag tags online or if they’re lucky, may be given them by their Travel Management Company.

Future releases will check that the number of tagged bags is consistent with the airfare booked.  The Bag Tracker feature will be included in the free Serko Mobile subscription.
