British Airways Takes Steps To Digitize Travel

Business travel just got a little less stressful. British Airways has paired up with Microsoft to develop a digital luggage tag.

With airport culture evolving into even longer lines, snarly security guards, and the end-all-be-all race to get a good seat, these new bag tags will help to streamline the majority of your travel ordeal via a simple app.

Customer trials are going smoothly, though the app looks like it’s only available on the Nokia Windows phone for now. Hopefully this will expand for all users, regardless of OS preference, so that our time at the airport will be a little less terrible.
