Future technologies: how to work airports in 2030

Every day technology makes a new step forward, and many travelers wonder what will be like airports nearest future, for example, 2030?

«Technology will play a much bigger role in airports than ever, and will be a key factor in creating every aspect of travel,» says sherry Stein, Director of SITA technology, a technology company providing services to the air transport industry.

This is important given that, as expected, the number of flying passengers in the world will double by 2040. If in 2018 such passengers around the world were registered 8.8 billion, then, presumably, by 2040 this figure will rise to 19.7 billion.

So, what will be waiting for us at the international airport of 2030?

Biometric identification

Several hundred airports worldwide are now experiencing a biometric identification technology that verifies the passenger’s identity using fingerprints or facial scan.

However, in the future, according to experts, the use of biometrics will grow exponentially.

According to the representative of American Airlines Ross Feinstein, in this decade, biometrics is the main activity of the company.

In the US at the airports Newark liberty, LaGuardia international airport and John F. Kennedy are already under construction areas to verify biometric data.

Passengers can even use the biometrics for shopping in duty free.

Artificial intelligence

As airports become increasingly congested, airlines and security organizations will interact to increasingly rely on artificial intelligence.

The international airports in new York and new Jersey have already put the funds to use artificial intelligence technology to verify and check as Luggage and hand Luggage.

The Executive Director of The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Rick cotton said that this is the best way of checking Luggage, which will make it faster and more accurate. It is expected that the equipment will be at LaGuardia by the middle of this year, and at other airports The Port Authority — by the year 2025.

At the same time, Delta Air Lines creates a system of AI that will analyze millions of operational data from the location of the aircraft to the airport. This will give employees the information necessary for decision-making in case of failures in the flight schedule.

For example, in the case of a severe snowstorm employees on the basis of this system to decide how best to rebook passengers, and which routes are best suited for them.

The company will improve mobile applications.

Thus, the administration of The Port Authority of New York plans in the next few years to significantly upgrade the app for passengers.

«They can see the waiting time of each checkpoint and waiting time of taxi. They can also order food through the app and deliver it directly target», — noted in management.
