All the Latest Airport Technology Trends in One Place
Key airport technology trends often align with the pressures felt by airports to remain profitable whilst meeting the high standards expected and required by the industry in areas including security, safety and environmental credentials. Often airlines can drive change as they begin to introduce technologies to their dedicated terminals, gates and airport lounges. The major international airlines act as a global network enabling the spread of these technologies as they introduce them from one airport to another.
Passengers too can be a big driver of change as they come to expect certain technologies to be available including online check in and frictionless procedures and facilities from security checks to the departure gate. The articles in this section reflect upon and document this technological progress as more airports and airlines begin to adopt and trial the latest cutting-edge technologies.
The introduction of these technologies can often raise issues between improving efficiency and reducing costs and improving security and passenger safety. This dichotomy in itself is driving innovation and increasing technology adoption rates across the industry as airports strive to find solutions to new problems whilst keeping their costs down.
