Air France will be implementing RFID bag tracking. — AFP Relaxnews

Air France has announced that starting in 2020, baggage checked at its Paris Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport counters will be tagged with an RFID chip that will help track each bag all along its journey. The project is a collaboration between the airline and Paris Aéroport.

Starting in 2020, some eight million bags checked in at Air France counters will be equipped with a tag containing an RFID (radio frequency identification) chip. The technology will be able to remotely associate each piece of luggage with its owner's information. This new technology, intended to reassure passengers fearful of losing their luggage, will soon be implemented across all Roissy terminals. The airline reports that other airports along the way will also progressively be equipped with the technology.
