The vacation season is coming. Countless people are taking a plane to a sunny destination to enjoy the scorching sun, good food and especially lots of relaxation. Provided that everything goes according to plan.
A lost suitcase is something that unfortunately sometimes happens. It doesn’t quite contribute to that relaxed feeling or can leave a bitter aftertaste upon returning home. Fortunately, we live in a time when we have the AirTag, as one man from Australia proves.
Australian finds lost suitcase thanks to AirTag
Losing a suitcase: it can happen to anyone. Airlines generally arrange things very well, but unfortunately there are exceptions. So too with Singapore Airlines where the suitcase of Australian Shane Miller, after a trip through Europe, was unfortunately left behind. Fortunately for Miller, who is also known on YouTube as GPLama, he hid an AirTag in the suitcase.
After spending a week at home, and not making any headway after contacting the airline, he decided to drive to Melbourne airport. Why? Because his iPhone’s Find My app, after an AirTag update, showed that his suitcase had arrived there. He walked into the building and tried to find the location of the tracker there.
As you can see in the video above, it was quite an adventure, but Shane Miller managed to connect to his AirTag. The video is quite long, but the search comes to an end around minute seventeen. Of course, with the help he got at the airport.
Useful for several reasons
It is certainly not the first time that the AirTag has been used to find property, successfully. For example, a small company from Delft developed a handy accessory that makes it easy to mount the tracker on your bicycle. You can read the story via the link below.
If you go on vacation this year, it is certainly not a bad idea to provide your suitcase with an AirTag. Even if it is just to be on the safe side.
