China Eastern Airlines has comprehensively introduced radio frequency identification devices (RFID) in luggage tracking at two major civil airports in Shanghai, according to the corporate sources.

Starting July, China Eastern has put the RFID-tech into operation at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport, the airline said.

The RFID-tech is among the most advanced luggage-management technologies in the global civil aviation industry. Compared with the current baggage tag scanning technology, the RFID-tech provides air passengers faster and more efficient service.

It allows air passengers to follow real-time information of their luggage with an electronic device.

The efficient luggage management is among key measurements to the smart airports, especially to those mega airports with huge passenger volume.

By the end of 2018, China had a total of 235 civil airports, including 37 with at least 10 million passengers annually.

China's civil aviation authorities are working hard to create safe, green, smart and human-oriented airports, with smart airports in the pivotal position.

Amid the booming growth and market demands, some of the major airports have sprung into action by applying new technologies for operations, including safety management, passenger service and emission reduction.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China, the country's air industry regulator, has selected 23 airports nationwide as demonstration projects hoping to create safe, green, smart and human-oriented airports. Of the total, 16 are smart airports, including airports in Shanghai and Beijing.
