Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport looks to improve passenger experience
"The BlipTrack technology benefits both passengers and the airport team as it allows them to see, in real time, where potential queues and pressure points are and provide proactive planning of the situation to improve service," said Martin Bowman, director of Global Airports for Lockheed Martin. “Knowing where there is congestion allows passengers to avoid lines – so they can spend more time shopping or relaxing in the airport. This is all about improved collaboration between the airport, airlines and TSA for the enhancement of the passenger experience."
