A few planes are off schedule. Many others are delayed. There are customers waiting in planes that need a gate and many that are waiting in the terminal for their delayed flights. How do you comfort these customers on the edge of their seats waiting to fly to their important meeting or make it on time for their next plane? How do you meet the demands and satisfy the sophisticated palates of air travelers while they anxiously wait for their flight?
The Airport Problem
Airport service is one of the biggest industries with over millions of people flying every day. It is also one the hardest industries to provide satisfying services, given the natural operational and logistical risks and defects. The standard airport solutions have been commercial stores, restaurants, lounges and other places of comfort that may sooth the ever anxious traveler. However, there are only so much to see in stores and so much to do in a lounge. Lounges and bars, although essential to the weary traveler, need to be staffed and attended, and so additional services may not always be cost efficient.
As air travelers are one of the most affluent consumers in world with larger expendable income for luxury items such as a $30 glass of wine, there is still an untapped market in many airports. Consumers today are developing a more sophisticated palate as well and a passion for innovation and technology, so combining these factors can generate much more revenue for your airport business. So how can you tap into this market while generating revenue?
