This simple story begins with the search on “how to reduce 2018 ticket prices in Europe” begins with that photo of one single parcel of 9.995 gram total weight. The costs for air tickets are too high, this is what travelers do report these days: so, how to fly from Central EU reaching locations within 3 to 4 hours for less?

The client said: “this will be the future” to that special solution. Critical voices complained: “All those plans – to fly without luggage – are not new”. Nervously shout: “if you flew tomorrow without any luggage, it may be seen as a possible threat in some states”. Will we travel 2020 based on such low budget services?
The real story behind is that the travel agencies can achieve higher benefits in selling tickets from airlines whose plan was to be more prestigious than the recently closed aviation provider from Germany’s capital Berlin. With more than 100.000 missing flights the prices increased logically. In April 2018 it’ll be over.
How to escape the odd rule of supply and demand?
Announcing the future, therefore, flying from your town to a metropolitan city for less than a week, all your luggage with your personal belonging may not be more than 5, maybe temporary 8 kg.
However, entering the air plane with ZERO kg, no check-in, and just picking up your best quality parcel at the destination ONLY, people will evaluate it as revolutionary.
How to manage challenging logistics?
On your flight home you might drop your individually packed parcel at the entrance of the airport: It could be re-used eventually and the fee for having used that innovative service could be quite low.
The price might be around 10 percent of the compensation if the luggage won’t arrive (cost up to 300 EUR).
Why not traveling without luggage?
If the main point described a vision that you got preferred flights for half of the cheapest prices available in the market with the best air craft worldwide, would it trigger people to change habits?
Worth to mention an alternative approach
In cases, if you really needed more luggage than the highest available standards provided for you – order at home online a few days before – you might send your individual parcel one week before by air mail with reduced prices for your 5 or 10 kg parcel by highly competitive international logistics companies.
Successfully tested, it works, too.
Then the high cost for parcels outside Germany will vanish, for sure. The fee for one parcel to Kehl am Rhein located in SW Germany may then be the same as to an address in Strasbourg City in Eastern France with double price at least, just opposite at a distance of 500 meters only.
The successfully tested solution
One single luggage contained
– 1 suitcase between 60 and 67 cm and 3 smaller bags (maximum 52 cm long),
some electrical devices and documentations
and for sure lots of air buffers. The cost for the 4 luggage did not reach 4 percent of the total insured value (up to 500 EUR).
If necessary, the client could use some of these bags or donate it to organisations requesting tons of old suitcases for the refugees arriving in the EU.
As a result, the whole process described here, could reduce the travel cost by more 500 Euro. And it makes travelling so easy and convenient again. So, is it the future to come? I must admit: The research work was fun.
