Lost Bags? That's So 2010, Says New Survey

At last! Some good news from the airline industry.

According to a study released today by the Swiss company SITA (an air transport communications specialist), lost luggage is at an all-time low.

Some 2.87 billion humans traveled by air in 2011, and all but 25.8 million arrived to find their bags waiting for them. That means that 91.1% of the bags got where they were supposed to go in 2011. In looking at trends over a five year period, SITA noted that 45% fewer bags were being lost or mishandled. Even the drop from 2010 to 2011 was significant (32. 3 million bags were lost that year).

Nice to read of improvements every once in a while, isn't it? To get the full report, click here.
