Bluesmart presents world’s first smart connected suitcase and cooperation with Vueling

Smart luggage startup Bluesmart presented this week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the world’s first smart and connected luggage. They also announced a strategic partnership with Vueling Airlines, the leading Spanish airline, to provide exclusive discounts to Vueling customers. Thanks to the partnership, Vueling clients will be among the first to discover the future of connected travel, through the Bluesmart brand and technology. The Bluesmart Carryon is an award winning connected luggage that raised more than $2,000,000 in pre orders from 8,000 backers in more than 100 countries on their crowdfunding campaign.

The product features GPS and Bluetooth enabled location tracking, a built in digital scale and locking device, battery charger, distance alerts and access to trip data.

“Our passion is travel, and we knew that integrating technology into the travel industry would empower travelers, while making the world a more connected place. Partnering with Vueling Airlines is a fantastic opportunity, as our companies share the same vision for innovation, while enhancing the travel experience through technology and comfort. With this partnership, the collaboration opportunities are endless, and we’re happy to step into the next generation of travel with a forward thinking company like Vueling” said Bluesmart cofounder and CEO Diego SaezGil.

“At Vueling there is only one thing that we love as much as travelling, and it’s applying innovation and technology to travelling. We believe in breaking boundaries through technology to transform not only how people travel but also how they feel when they travel. That is why we are so happy to partner with Bluesmart who shares the same passion. Together we would like to help people travel smarter and more pleasant” said Vueling Head of Product Development María Cardenal.
