Transforming Passenger Experience with Self-Service Airline Kiosks

Last year saw more than 50 million commercial flights carry over 4.5 billion passengers to destinations all over the world.

It goes without saying that the aviation industry is big business and extremely competitive. The aftereffects of COVID-19, the biggest global pandemic ever seen, are still being felt across multiple industries, and none more so than in the aviation industry. Today, it is more important than ever that airlines explore new ways of operating to save costs, maximise efficiency, and optimise their passenger experience to one that exceeds their rivals.

Technology of all kinds is constantly evolving and improving in all walks of life, and it is undeniable that new innovations can help vastly improve productivity. Digital check-in solutions which help reduce queue waiting times and automated scanning stations at passport control are commonplace as airlines continue to adopt a multitude of technology to improve their ways of working.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a huge factor in technology, and with digital aviation kiosks which are focused on performing up to 12 functions, the overall TCO of our kiosks is significantly less than that of other technology companies. Flying millions of passengers around the world is expensive, and with increasingly high customer expectations, airlines are under pressure to make the flying experience better and cheaper.

We believe in making technology more accessible for all and our award-winning digital aviation kiosks introduce an array of benefits that help companies overcome a multitude of sticking points in their user journey.
