What is IATA Resolution 753?

IATA state on their website that: “IATA Resolution 753 on baggage tracking is intended to encourage airlines to further reduce mishandling by implementing cross-industry tracking for every baggage journey.”

Under the initiative, airlines have made a commitment to the process of tracking baggage through every part of the journey, from acceptance at the originating airport, loading onto the aircraft to the transfer of baggage into the arrivals system of the destination airport. Also covered, will be the transfer of baggage for carriage by a further airline during a multi-leg journey. The deadline has been set for June 2018 and is just around the corner.

The main basic principles of the system must be fulfilled, and airlines will:

  • Provide an inventory of baggage before the flight departs
  • Demonstrate delivery of baggage when its custody changes
  • Demonstrate reception of baggage when its custody changes
  • Be able to share and exchange tracking information with other airlines, as required


When was IATA Resolution 753 effective from?


IATA Resolution 753 was first requested by airlines in 2013, was given further approval by the Joint Passenger Services Conference (JPSC), and a five-year implementation deadline with a proposed effectivity date of June 1, 2018. This five-year implementation period has allowed airport operators and airlines to work together to ensure that infrastructural systems and processes are ready and available to deliver an enhanced service.
