Global air traffic doubles every 15 years. Passenger traffic will rise an average of 5% a year for the next several decades. While this is great news for aviation as a whole, it creates new challenges for airports to keep people moving efficiently. That is why the industry has been so adoptive of self-serve solutions that passengers do not have to wait in traditional lines for.
ARINC already installs more than 60% of the world’s airport check-in kiosks and has delivered first-of-its-kind technology such as self-boarding gates, self-baggage tagging, and automated one-way security corridors. With smartphone users expected to reach 1.5 billion in just a couple of years, the passenger expectation to be able to soon use them to navigate airport touch points, and nearly 90% of airports planning to invest in mobile apps and infrastructure, ARINC will be there too to help airports keep people moving efficiently, safely, and cost-effectively.
