Every traveler’s dream is a hassle-free experience through various airport processes. With the rapid development of cutting-edge technology, this vision could soon be a reality. Let’s explore how some of these technologies are already enhancing the passenger journey.
Transforming Passenger Experience with Advanced FIDS Technology
It’s well-known in the industry that passengers feel more at ease with access to accurate, timely information. This is where the Flight Information Display System (FIDS) plays a crucial role. The latest FIDS technology offers unprecedented flexibility to operators, providing:
- Automatic flight details, including delay, boarding, gate, and belt assignments.
- User-configurable displays – extend beyond clustered monitors.
- Emergency override messaging – helping manage flow in anticipation of potential congestion.
- Free text options – displaying real-time information, changes, and promotions at crucial points in the passenger journey.
- Remote monitoring and maintenance – ensuring real-time visibility and simplified management.
By leveraging FIDS technology, operators can offer clear, easily accessible, and multilingual information, enhancing passenger experience and mitigating stress associated with travel.
Reviving US Passenger Confidence with Smart Baggage Handling
Baggage mishandling is a major pain point affecting passenger experience and confidence. Issues, like delayed or lost luggage, can greatly impact a passenger’s likelihood to choose an airport or airline again.
The introduction of IATA’s Resolution 753 has improved baggage handling, reconciliation, and tracking, especially during interlining. However, as US traveler numbers increase, mishandled baggage issues persist.
Adopting baggage handling and reconciliation technologies can streamline processes, improve turnaround times, and restore passenger confidence. By automating key processes, these technologies empower ground handling teams, making baggage mishandling an issue of the past.
Investing Wisely in Airport Technology: The Time is Now
Improving passenger experience remains a top priority for airports and operators. To this end, they are seeking technologies that address friction points effectively.
Recognizing the limitations of their outdated technologies, many US airports are now turning to intelligent, cloud-based solutions. As passenger numbers rise, these smart technologies offer the required solutions via a modern economic model.
