Creating Value with Technology for Better Passenger Experiences
Airports and airlines are incorporating technology to improve the overall passenger experiences. The use of virtual assistant holograms are being utilized by more airports to help arriving passengers make that transit to the next departure (or arrival hall) a better experience. Airlines are increasingly offering more extra room seating cabins for better comfort, as Air Asia Behad offers “hot seats” (with red headrest seats) for an upgraded fee. Tray tables and cabin bins are prime shelf-space designs for airlines (from the traditional supermarket shelf-space for products) as airlines expose passengers to new routes, tours, and other advertisements to its captive audience. Airlines are transforming cabins with newer aircraft designs that include the blue-red-yellow mood change lighting for improved cabin comfort. Airlines are upgrading the in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems to offer more TV channels, movies, games, and other IFE services for improved in-flight experiences throughout the entire journey.
