RFID Baggage Card

The RFID Baggage Card helps to solve any problems you might experience with your baggage while traveling and enables you to track the movement of your baggage at certain points as well. 

When your card is placed in you baggage, it will be sensed by readers located at certain points and it will allow sending instant notifications to our related departments. In this way, we can offer you effective and fast solutions in case of problems. 

In addition, after the completion of our necessary infrastructure works, you will be notified by SMS when your luggage arrives at the baggage delivery area on your arrival at Istanbul Airport. Thus, you will not have to wait until your luggage reaches the delivery area and you will be able to meet your other needs during that time.

The RFID Baggage Card uses the RFID technology meaning “Radio-Frequency Identification”. The RFID technology provided by Turkish Airlines is available at certain airports. 

How is it used? 

As the RFID Baggage Card is integrated to your Miles&Smiles membership, your personal information is not saved to the card. We get in touch with you using the contact information given on your Miles&Smiles account. 

By following the four steps below, you can start using your Baggage Card easily. 

  1. Register your card. 
  2. Place your card into your baggage. 
  3. You will be notified with an SMS when your baggage arrives to the delivery area. 
  4. When our ongoing work is completed, you will be notified by SMS on your arrival at Istanbul Airport before your luggage reaches the delivery area.

1. Registering the baggage card 

To use your Baggage Card, you need to register it to the system first. After you register your card, the system will be able to recognize it.
