Qatar Airways is delighted to be the first airline to receive certification from International Air Transport Association (IATA) on Resolution 753 at its hub in Hamad International Airport (HIA). The resolution was put in place in 2016 to track baggage and reduce mishandling and baggage fraud around the world.  
 
 
The airline developed and implemented a Baggage Management System (“HAQIBA”)and integrated into the Qatar Airways website and mobile app.  To take advantage of this service, customers can use the “Track My Bags” feature on the Qatar website and app.  
 
Nick Careen, Senior Vice President, Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security for IATA, said: “Qatar Airways’ efforts over the past year to comply with IATA Resolution 753 on Baggage Tracking have paid off. We congratulate the airline on becoming the first in the world to achieve full compliance of the resolution at their hub in Doha. Qatar Airways’ ability to track baggage at every stage of its journey will allow the airline full visibility to manage its baggage operations and to more easily trace, retrieve and deliver missing or delayed bags, leading to a better experience for passengers.”
 
This is great news for customers flying Qatar.  All airlines will have until 1 June, 2018 to comply with the resolution.
