SITA’s WorldTracer Self Service was developed as a contactless way for passengers to report delayed baggage from mobile devices, avoiding long queues at busy baggage counters. Initial trials between SITA and Lufthansa Group showed that the service has already proved to be popular with travelers, with two-thirds opting to use this service instead of visiting a baggage counter. In addition to meeting new COVID-19 hygiene requirements, WorldTracer Self Service saves airlines on average $10 for every mishandled bag reported by eliminating the need for additional infrastructure to manage the reporting of delayed bags.</span></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">Peter Drummond, director of baggage at SITA, said: “We’re extremely proud to celebrate this 30-year milestone for WorldTracer. It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come since SITA first established the product. We’ve constantly improved and innovated, such as meeting new health requirements during the post-COVID era while making processes in the airport more cost-effective, which is one of the reasons why we’ve been such an industry staple for three decades.”</span></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">In 2007, the year that WorldTracer migrated from the mainframe to open system technology, SITA began reporting passenger trends. In that year, lost and mishandled baggage worldwide peaked with 47 million bags, or 19 bags lost or mishandled per thousand passengers, representing a cost of $4.7 billion to the air transport industry.</span></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">With small fluctuations, the per capita mishandled bag rate has continued to decline to 3.5 bags lost or mishandled per thousand passengers in 2020. As part of SITA’s wider Baggage Management Portfolio, WorldTracer helps to boost operational efficiency, reduce bag mishandling, and lower costs. In addition, it ensures the airline community meets IATA Resolutions 780 for interline passenger traffic and 743 for found and unclaimed checked baggage. It also helps them follow the Montreal and Warsaw conventions on Lost Luggage.</span></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">Peter Drummond adds: “Our goal is to make baggage tracing and repatriation processes faster, more usable, and above all, less expensive. Increasingly, we’re using smart technologies to reach that goal, reducing the level of human interaction to a minimum and helping passengers take control of the process. It’s an exciting time to be part of the WorldTracer community, and I’m looking forward to its continued success in the future.”</span></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div><time datetime="2021-11-24T12:00:00Z">Wed, 24/11/2021 - 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">SITA is celebrating the 30th anniversary of WorldTracer, a solution that has helped over 200 million passengers trace their mishandled bags over the decades. </span></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/middle-east-and-north-africa" hreflang="en">Middle East and North Africa</a></div> <div><a href="/africa" hreflang="en">Africa</a></div> <div><a href="/south-asia" hreflang="en">South Asia</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/airports" hreflang="en">Airports</a></div> <div><a href="/technology" hreflang="en">Technology</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Rate</div> <div><form class="fivestar-form-1" id="vote" data-drupal-selector="fivestar-form-1" action="/taxonomy/term/6/feed" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <div class="clearfix fivestar-average-text fivestar-average-stars fivestar-form-item fivestar-basic"><div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-fivestar form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-select form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <select class="vote form-select" data-drupal-selector="edit-vote" aria-describedby="edit-vote--2--description" id="edit-vote--2" name="vote"><option value="-">Select rating</option><option value="20">Give it 1/5</option><option value="40">Give it 2/5</option><option value="60">Give it 3/5</option><option value="80">Give it 4/5</option><option value="100">Give it 5/5</option><option value="0">Cancel rating</option></select> <div id="edit-vote--2--description" class="description"> <div class="fivestar-summary fivestar-summary-average-count"><span class="empty">No votes yet</span></div> </div> </div> </div> </div><input style="display:none" data-drupal-selector="edit-submit" type="submit" id="edit-submit" name="op" value="Rate" class="button js-form-submit form-submit" /> <input autocomplete="off" data-drupal-selector="form-ncfjrl8znwcgzvzudop5pdk1lljugxfu5wgylqdagb0" type="hidden" name="form_build_id" value="form-NCFJRl8ZNwCgZvzUdOP5PdK1llJUGXFu5WgylQdaGb0" /> <input data-drupal-selector="edit-fivestar-form-1" type="hidden" name="form_id" value="fivestar_form_1" /> </form> </div> </div> <div> <div>Add to home page</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Article main topic</div> <div><a href="/technology" hreflang="en">Technology</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Moved to features</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Lead image:</div> <div> <img property="schema:image" src="/sites/aerospace/times/files/2021-11/worldtracer-celebrates-30-years-of-repatriating-mishandled-baggage-900x600.jpg" width="950" height="633" alt="" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>New batch</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Wed, 24 Nov 2021 10:08:13 +0000 eNethersole 64081 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero Manta Aircraft and Foviatech sign MoU http://www.timesaerospace.aero/news/technology/manta-aircraft-and-foviatech-sign-mou-0 <div property="schema:text"><p>The integration will optimise flight controls as well as implementation of AI quality inspection during the final assembly line, and digitalisation of engineering validation at the back end and engineering manuals automation.</p> <p>Manta Aircraft is a high-tech engineering and design company engaged in the development of multi-purpose aerial platforms and different models of electric and hybrid-electric V/STOL vehicles for advanced and regional air mobility.

Nearly two thirds of the total global population can be reached within an eight hour flight from Dubai and this forms an attractive proposition for e-commerce players aiming to deliver goods to customers within the shortest possible time. With its sophisticated transport links, transit hubs and supply chain infrastructure, Dubai is also well positioned to handle global flows and volumes of e-commerce cargo.</span></span><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">&nbsp;</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo, said: "We are very excited to be embarking on this pioneering partnership with Emirates Post Group to create a comprehensive global platform for e-commerce, a vertical which has been steadily increasing in importance over the years including most recently during the pandemic when more and more consumers shopped online from around the world. This partnership is part of our broader e-commerce strategy to provide support as a distribution partner to small and medium sized e-commerce players and other businesses, based both within and outside the UAE, who may not have the required infrastructure required to scale their business and reach a global audience. With our global network spanning six continents and our state of the art hub in Dubai capable of handling large volumes of e-commerce cargo, our wide body capacity and our frequency of flights, Emirates SkyCargo is well placed to move e-commerce goods rapidly across the world. Through this partnership, we will now also be able to draw upon the logistical and last-mile delivery expertise of EPG's Emirates Post to create a global platform for e-commerce centred out of Dubai."</span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div><time datetime="2021-11-17T12:00:00Z">Wed, 17/11/2021 - 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Emirates SkyCargo has signed an MoU at the show to work together to develop an e-commerce end-to-end global logistics platform.</span></span></p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/middle-east-and-north-africa" hreflang="en">Middle East and North Africa</a></div> <div><a href="/africa" hreflang="en">Africa</a></div> <div><a href="/south-asia" hreflang="en">South Asia</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/air-transport" hreflang="en">Air transport</a></div> <div><a href="/technology" hreflang="en">Technology</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Rate</div> <div><form class="fivestar-form-7" id="vote--7" data-drupal-selector="fivestar-form-7" action="/taxonomy/term/6/feed" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <div class="clearfix fivestar-average-text fivestar-average-stars fivestar-form-item fivestar-basic"><div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-fivestar form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-select form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <select class="vote form-select" data-drupal-selector="edit-vote" aria-describedby="edit-vote--14--description" id="edit-vote--14" name="vote"><option value="-">Select rating</option><option value="20">Give it 1/5</option><option value="40">Give it 2/5</option><option value="60">Give it 3/5</option><option value="80">Give it 4/5</option><option value="100">Give it 5/5</option><option value="0">Cancel rating</option></select> <div id="edit-vote--14--description" class="description"> <div class="fivestar-summary fivestar-summary-average-count"><span class="empty">No votes yet</span></div> </div> </div> </div> </div><input style="display:none" data-drupal-selector="edit-submit" type="submit" id="edit-submit--7" name="op" value="Rate" class="button js-form-submit form-submit" /> <input autocomplete="off" data-drupal-selector="form-caaz-lxuauhv1e86snyw4egvwmyvl2rip9mk-bbu3oq" type="hidden" name="form_build_id" value="form-CAaZ_lxUAUhv1E86SnyW4egVwMYVL2RIp9mK-bBu3OQ" /> <input data-drupal-selector="edit-fivestar-form-7" type="hidden" name="form_id" value="fivestar_form_7" /> </form> </div> </div> <div> <div>Add to home page</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Article main topic</div> <div><a href="/events" hreflang="en">Events</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Moved to features</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Lead image:</div> <div> <img property="schema:image" src="/sites/aerospace/times/files/2021-11/Emirates-SkyCargo_0.jpg" width="1200" height="800" alt="" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>New batch</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Wed, 17 Nov 2021 10:38:01 +0000 eNethersole 64046 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero Dubai Airshow: Boeing backs Africa’s First Aviation Hub by Kenya Airways http://www.timesaerospace.aero/news/events/dubai-airshow-boeing-backs-africas-first-aviation-hub-by-kenya-airways <div property="schema:text"><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">Launched in July 2021, the Kenya Airways’ Fahari Innovation Hub is a platform that brings together entrepreneurs and innovators to help accelerate the development of the aviation industry and tackle some of its current and future challenges.</span></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">“We are very proud of our partnership with Kenya Airways to support their new startup hub.
