Internet of Things (IoT) service provider Sigfox has teamed up with Amadeus to launch a new asset-tracking platform called PinPoint.

The end-to-end tracking solution, which involves reusable tags and proximity sensors, will help airports and airlines track passenger luggage as well as assets such as aircraft spare-parts, landing gear and Unit Load Devices.

Meanwhile, the partnership will allow airports to update existing infrastructure at gates.

The alliance follows the new IATA resolution 753, which imposes stricter tracking and increased visibility requirements to reduce luggage loss rates.
