033Passengers with China Eastern Airlines can now apply to receive a free electronic luggage tag through the airline’s app that allows travelers to check in and track luggage via their mobile phones.

The tag, said to be the first of its kind in the world, has a screen to show passenger and flight information after coming into contact with a passenger's smartphone. A chip embedded in the tag also lets passengers follow their luggage on their phone.

031Applications for free tags are open until September 10 through the latest version of China Eastern’s mobile phone app. A second round of applications will run between September 20 and October 7.

The carrier will evaluate the flight and luggage check-in records of applicants as it issues the free tags, the airline said on Tuesday. Frequent travelers between Shanghai and Beijing will have priority.

032China Eastern platinum card holders can apply for the electronic tag directly at ticket counters. The airline also plans to make bespoke luggage tags.

The airline first released electronic tags in July at the Hongqiao airport. They are mainly intended for flights between Shanghai and Beijing, and for Beijing's new airport which is scheduled to open this month.
