  • Dr. Muruganantham. A., Mr. Bino Joseph


 Increasing number of airline passengers and their requirements tends to force the aviation industry to meet the operational challenges. One of the major challenges is rising number of mishandled baggage and its theft. Block chain technology helps aviation industry in handling baggage’s in transparent and easily accessible way by storing and processing luggage data in clear and effective way. Blockchain stores the meta-data and manipulates it thus enables the client to receive live tracking information about the baggage. To address the baggage handling challenges blockchain adopts hybrid solution by combining RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) and barcode technology together which provides clear visibility throughout the baggage journey and ease baggage identification and tracking.
