The BagTrac API retrieves the real-time status of baggage from SITAâ€™s BagJourney and BagMessage systems using either a bag tag number or a PNR. The API also gets a list of bag tags for a particular flight or list of delayed tags for that flight.
BagMessage is SITAâ€™s fully managed, secure baggage message distribution service that collects Baggage Information Messages (BIMs) from multiple baggage systems at multiple terminals and airports and also routes messages between these points. BagJourney processes the messages from BagMessage, applying business intelligence rules to the information to make it relevant and accessible for all types of baggage handling queries.
SITA are currently commencing market trials of the API therefore there is no charge to use the API for 2013. Full technical support will be provided by SITA Lab. Please contact Peter Drummond, API Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
