The emerging technologies developed for the next generation are designed to transform the way users travel, which will also impact the way things are done today.
We are seeing more and more airports creating mobile applications and making their processes more flexible to incorporate technology platforms to support their staff. Facilitating their work and also providing the security required by an industry such as aviation, and thanks to this, today we can enjoy mobile check-in stations, self-check-in machines, self-service baggage handling, and even mobile stations with tablet or smartphone devices that allow airlines or airports to manage all trips.
The implementation of this type of technology is not only destined to transform the way people travel. Also becomes an opportunity to break down airport infrastructure barriers and even resource or personnel limitations, giving airports the possibility to move forward without incurring large budgetary investments in remodeling and time.
Now that passenger volumes have been increasing considerably and airlines or airports do not have enough staff to cope with the demand. These technological platforms have become a great ally for airport operators that also helps to increase passenger satisfaction by providing a safe, fast and agile service that makes their trip a pleasant experience.
The inclusion of this type of tool for airport operators does not entail a major problem, since they are easy to use for their staff, and instead of causing a more cumbersome process, it generates the opportunity to have passenger, baggage, and check-in information in real-time with cloud support, which allows them to have greater control over the information, with minimal errors.
Airport management systems, as they are generally known, can cover many areas, the most common are those corresponding to internal administration, in terms of concessions, billing, and contracts, but now we can enjoy more robust software that offers the possibility of managing suppliers such as aviation fuel, passengers, luggage and even FBO’s that until now were seen as external entities.
