The Rise of the Emerging Market Traveler Sponsored This content is created collaboratively with one of our sponsors.
Despite stalled growth in China, Brazil and Russia, a wave of newly middle-class travelers from the BRICs and beyond will start visiting international destinations in the coming decades — dwarfing the numbers we’ve seen thus far.
Your baggage may go missing thanks to a carrier who is flying an Airbus plane, but at least you’ll be able to track where that bag is thanks to Airbus.
Airbus is best known for aircraft like its A380 superjumbo and the next-generation A350 jetliner, but the company has cooked up something else to delight the traveller: a prototype ‘smart’ bag complete with a companion iPhone app and ‘Find My Bag’ function to track lost luggage.
Christened ‘Bag2Go’, the concept has been developed in partnership with mobile carrier T-Mobile and German luggage maker Rimowa.
