TECH FOR TOMORROW RIMOWA Electronic Tag: The RIMOWA Electronic Tag is the first digital and fully integrated mobility solution. It makes flying with luggage faster, more comfortable, and more secure. With the RIMOWA Electronic Tag, Lufthansa passengers can check their luggage from home or on the road with the Lufthansa app. Using their digital boarding pass, they can submit data from their smartphone via Bluetooth to their luggage equipped with the tag. The luggage data will immediately appear on the data module integrated into the case. The checked luggage must then only be placed on the conveyor at the Lufthansa Baggage Drop-off desk. The luggage data displayed on the electronic display corresponds in size and appearance to current paper tags. Important information is protected from humidity, heat, cold, falls, and jarring, and cannot be torn off.
