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.

— Jason Clampet

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.
