Rimowa and Eva Staff for new luggage e-tags

EVA, RIMOWA Join Forces on Cutting-edge Luggage e-Tags

New system saves passengers time, speeds baggage check-in

 

TAIPEI, TAIWAN (8 December, 2016) – EVA Air is introducing RIMOWA’s cutting-edge electronic tags into baggage check-in procedures today (8 December, 2016), becoming the first airline in Asia and the second worldwide to officially offer the new service. The airline now makes baggage check-in as easy as one, two, three for passengers using the EVA Air Mobile App and Rimowa electronic tag luggage. The RIMOWA e-tag baggage check-in service is available for iOS operating systems now and will be ready for Androids soon.

THANK YOU.

Initially, EVA is offering the new e-tag baggage check-in service to passengers outbound from San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), Houston (IAH), New York (JFK), Vancouver (YVR), Toronto (YYZ), Paris (CDG), Vienna (VIE), Tokyo (HND) and all international airports in EVA’s Taiwan home base with the exception of Taipei-London flights due to government regulations. The airline will add more airports in the near future.

The RIMOWA electronic tag is a revolutionary, eco friendly, and time-saving travel concept. Passengers with RIMOWA e-tag luggage can use the EVA Mobile App to check in their bags from wherever they are without waiting in line, at home, in a cab, at the gym, in the office or just about anywhere on the globe. With just one click, they can connect the App to the luggage and confirm the e-tag information in the electronic panel on the side of the bag. After the e-tag check-in process has been completed, passengers simply drop their luggage at the designated “online check-in counter” at the airport.

To verify stability of the system, gain feedback and better optimize the service for passengers, EVA conducted a series of strict field tests with the RIMOWA e-tag luggage check-in process before officially introducing it.
