Upon arriving at the airport, many travelers have the same needs and questions about lodging or local resources which can result in crowding, bottlenecks and standing in lines just to get direction and answers. Self serve computer kiosks reduce wait times and long lines and keep people moving while they help themselves, everybody wins! The Tower Kiosk is engineered to perform and endure rigorous high traffic use and provides the ideal all-in-one self service solution for locations where users are seeking information about:
- Flight Information and Check In
- Local Hotel Accommodations
- Ground Transportation Services
- Local Entertainment
- Food and Beverage
- Maps and Wayfinding
- VOIP International Telephone Service
This Tower Kiosk is also designed to emit safety warnings to passengers within the airport using flashing LED lights and a customizable alarm. Optional add-on features include a VOIP handset with a retracting cord, credit card reader, bar code scanner, durable metal keyboard, touch pad and more.
Currently, airports are at the top of the list for the longest check in lines and information booth bottlenecks when compared to other heavily populated industries. Technology is being integrated throughout airports to assist with the problem of the increasing number of travelers and the decreased airport staffing. According to the TSA (from CNN Travel), “For fiscal year 2016, the TSA's authorized staffing level is 42,525 and passenger volume is projected to be 740 million.There's been a 15 percent increase in passenger volume and a 10 percent drop in staffing since fiscal year 2013”.
