EVA Air has partnered with RIMOWA to introduce cutting-edge electronic tags into the carrier’s check-in procedures.
Becoming the first airline is Asia and the second worldwide to officially offer the new service, the independent Taiwanese airline’s passengers can now use a mobile app and RIMOWA’s electronic tag system for a seamless check-in experience.
The RIMOWA electronic tag is a revolutionary, eco-friendly and time-saving travel concept, which allows EVA Air passengers to fast-track through the usual airport check-in procedure, skipping long, tiresome queues and processing their luggage – within seconds – from just about anywhere in the world.
With just one click, travellers can connect EVA Air’s App to their luggage and confirm all e-tag information on an electronic panel built in to the side of the RIMOWA suitcase.
On completion of the e-tag check-in process, passengers simply drop their luggage at the airport’s designated ‘online check-in counter’, before starting their journey with EVA Air.
Initially, the new e-tag baggage check-in service will be available for all passengers travelling outbound from a number of international airports, including Paris; Vienna; San Francisco; Seattle; Houston; New York; Vancouver; Toronto; and Tokyo, with plans to add more airports in the near future.
Prior to the official launch, EVA Air conducted a series of strict field tests with the RIMOWA e-tag check-in process, to verify stability of the system, gain feedback and better optimise the service for its passengers.
RIMOWA is one of Europe’s leading premium travel and carry-on luggage manufacturers.
