Holiday travel is kicking off this week with many wondering what to expect after a turbulent summer season where staffing was short and lost luggage made the headlines. Air travel is expected to increase beyond pre-pandemic numbers according to PwC’s annual Holiday Outlook report. Air travel has picked up again, with almost half of travelers — 46% — planning to fly, up from 40% in 2021 and 33% in 2020. The last peak in travel was marked with complications, with overbooked planes, long wait times, canceled flights and over a million lost bags in the U.S. between January and June 2022. The percentage of lost bags, when compared to 2019, is 30% more.
As the travel industry’s recovery continues, Samsara Luggage Inc says they are well-positioned to help improve the traveler experience.
Samsara Luggage Inc has come up with a clever way to ease stress among travelers and provide customers with a seamless and easy traveling experience. Awarded Special Mention in TIME’s Best Inventions of 2022 list, Samsara Luggage has designed a line of suitcases with an embedded Apple AirTag. The suitcase can be tracked using the Find My app on the iPhone. Now, travelers can stay a step ahead by accessing information about their lost or stolen luggage using their personal mobile device.
Samsara Luggage’s Tag Smart suitcase is designed with a durable aluminum frame and TSA-approved combination locks that keep the AirTag protected.
