UPM Raflatec inks Korea Airports deal
UPM Raflatec has secured a deal to supply 350,000 RFID inlays to Korea Airports Corporation for airline baggage tracking.
The RFID implementation project – which uses Raflatec’s RFID baggage tag, Rabbit – has a budget of US$3.3 million, and is the biggest South Korean government supported RFID project this year.
In addition to the RFID inlays, the infrastructure will cover 98 fixed readers and 85 printers at Asiana Airline’s airports including Gimpo, Korea and Haneda in Japan.
“UPM Raflatac has developed the Rabbit UHF inlay specifically for airline baggage use,” says Edward Lu, RFID Sales and Marketing director, APAC at UPM Raflatec. He adds: “Rabbit has a high performance dual dipole antenna and high orientation insensitivity that ensure the performance throughout baggage handling operations”
