How to save your luggage during the flight: Travelers recommendations
While the new regulation began to act, tourist portal Tourweek.RU found out from the experts of the aviation industry, What rules need to follow not to lose luggage at the airport.
On the suitcase there is a special tag, intended to indicate the name of the owner. Also there are worth the list of accommodation, email address and contact phone.
On the eve of the trip, it is necessary to clear the suitcase from the tags from the previous flights, since the baggage processing systems at the airport can scan the irrelevant barcode. Experts also do not exercise luggage in the bags of a rounded form or betray such a form with the help of a packaging film, since such luggage is more often rolling from sorter lines – Therefore, it may be lost.

Thus, a suitcase who is in the system that is in the system may not have time to get to the flight, since his owner has arrived late for registration.

Such an indicator – One of the lowest among European airports. Thus, only 1 suitcase from a thousand leaves the deadline.
