Avery Dennison and partner Print-O-Tape have won a three-year contract from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, US, to supply radio frequency identification (RFID) tags for its baggage handling system.

The contract can be extended by another two years.

The RFID tags will allow more accurate tracking of baggage through the airport and more efficient loading and unloading of planes, which in turn enables significant cost savings.

The Avery Dennison / Print-O-Tape RFID tags are different from barcode-only tags in that they can be read from a distance of a few feet without line-of-sight and in any orientation.

RFID-based systems are more reliable and offer average read rates of over 97%, which is better than a barcode-only system’s average of around 80%.

The airport is now upgrading its system to EPCglobal Class One, Gen2 standards with Avery Dennison’s AD-833 UHF RFID inlay, which is specifically designed for aviation needs, and incorporates Print-O-Tape’s global expertise in baggage tag converting.
