The industry forum where the future of baggage handling will be defined

The FTE Baggage Innovation Working Group

The FTE Baggage Innovation Working Group (BIWG) brings together the most innovative and progressive baggage supply chain companies, airlines, and airports from across the industry to provide a unique platform for cooperation and industry advancement. It is the platform for developing new techniques, technologies, and business models to deliver tangible change in the baggage sector. Our members regularly come together to learn from one another and collaborate on game-changing proof of concepts (POCs) to reduce costs, improve passenger experience, and test innovations.

It is a genuinely engaged community and the industry’s best learning and networking platform for those serious about baggage. Our Captains from Southwest Airlines, Avinor, Air Canada & Greater Toronto Airports Authority are senior figures who manage busy operations. They are paired with the highly respected Samuel Ingalls and Darin Juby to moderate and lead our discussions.
