25 million items of luggage go missing annually

The baggage report revealed that one in 100 passengers globally at a major airport will experience the sinking feeling of waiting at an empty carousel for luggage that hasn’t reached its intended destination. Flight Centre found that of the 25 million mishandled bags, more than half went astray between transfers, around 16 per cent weren’t loaded onto flights and 13 per cent went missing because of passenger bag switching, poor ticketing and failed security.Flight Centre’s Colin Bowman says it is vital that people check their travel insurance policy because most don’t factor the possibility of having to replace all their clothes into their travel budget.”Most assume it won’t happen to them, but these figures give a strong indication people should ensure they’re covered,” said Mr Bowman.”There are more people flying globally now than ever before, and many airlines are sharing international routes, for example a traveller may fly with two airlines on one trip, so it’s really not worth taking the risk.”Mr Bowman said it was important to keep in mind that some airlines don’t compensate their passengers for lost, stolen or damaged luggage, and even if they do it takes time for the reimbursement to come through.last_img read more
