The traditional model of airport check-in involves numerous dedicated, staffed counters that use up precious floor space restricting the space available for revenue earning retails outlets.
Standing around in check-in queues frustrates passengers and ultimately results in lost airport revenues as every extra minute a traveller spends checking in for a flight is time that could be spent shopping or eating at an airport retail or food and beverage outlet. But the traditional model is changing and airport check-in as we know is already becoming obsolete. Delivering a seamless but personalised passenger check-in experience is the challenge faced by airports as self-service technology becomes the preferred method of choice for travelers.
