Paris Airports raise the awareness of travelers about the unattended luggage through the Unattended Luggage Campaign. It is part of its new campaign. A report said that there was a 77.8% increase in unattended luggage at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport between 2013 and 2016.
So, the campaign will be rolled out across all airport communications channels to raise awareness. It includes the entire JCDecaux digital advertising network of 135 screens, at check-in desks, shuttle buses, and at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport railway station.
This also is visible at several stations throughout the Ile-de-France area. The campaign will be in French, English, and Chinese.
The chairman and CEO of Groupe ADP, Augustin de Romanet commented, “More than 1,000 operations were carried out in the first nine months of 2017 to deal with unattended luggage at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. This caused more than 400 flights to be delayed by an average of 30 minutes, with significant impact on airlines.”
He also added, “Unattended bags are partially due to travelers’ absent-mindedness, but also due to a tightening of weight restrictions under airline baggage policies. To avoid paying the additional charges, passengers do not think twice about leaving their luggage at the airport.”
60% of unattended luggage has been left at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, with 40% of these bags left at the Air France KLM hub since the start of the year.
