The holiday season is coming. Countless people take the plane to a sunny destination to enjoy the scorching sun, good food and above all a lot of relaxation. Provided everything goes completely as planned.
A lost suitcase is something that unfortunately sometimes occurs. That doesn’t quite contribute to that relaxed feeling or can leave a bitter aftertaste when you get home. Fortunately, we live in a time where we have the AirTag, as a man from Australia proves.
Australian finds lost suitcase thanks to AirTag
Losing a suitcase: it can happen to anyone. Airline companies generally arrange things very well, but unfortunately there are exceptions. This is also the case with Singapore Airlines, where the suitcase of the Australian Shane Miller, unfortunately, was left behind after a trip through Europe. Luckily for Miller, who is also known as GPLama on YouTube, he hid an AirTag in the suitcase.
After being home for a week, and having made no progress after contacting the airline, he decided to drive to Melbourne airport. Why? Because the Find myapp from his iPhone, after an update to the AirTag, showed that his suitcase had arrived there. He walked into the building and tried to find the tracker’s location there.
As you can see in the video above, it was quite an adventure, but Shane Miller managed to connect with his AirTag. The video is quite long, but the search ends around minute seventeen. Of course with the help he received at the airport.
Useful for several reasons
It is certainly not the first time that the AirTag has been used to successfully find properties. For example, a 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 are going on holiday this year, it is certainly not a bad idea to provide your suitcase with an AirTag. Even if it is already to be sure.
