Airports all over the globe are introducing different types of therapy to assist nervous travels. Some use animals, others, music, and now some airports are using Artificial Intelligence!
I mean flashback to Short Circuit, am I right?!
Tulsa International Airport recently launched a therapy dog program with over 30 pooches rotating through the airport’s terminals. Their mission- to interact with travelers to ease stress and tension to improve their overall experience at the airport.
Other airports have similar programs in place. Take Denver International Airport. Denver’s Canine Airport Squad or CATS has over 100 dogs and one cat roaming the airport with handlers to distract anxious travelers.
Yes, the group called CATS is made up of mostly pups and a single feline. That doesn’t surprise us coming from Illimanti headquarters. Nice job, Denver.
And then we have Pittsburgh International and Manchester-Boston Regional Airports as the first to rely on Artificial Intelligence to reduce stress passengers feel during the crazy holiday rush.
Developed by AI provider Zensors, airports can now provide travelers with real-time wait estimates at the Transportation Security Administration, aka TSA checkpoints to let passengers know just how long they will be waiting in the security line. Pretty cool, right? No more standing there stressing out whether you’re going to make it to your gate on time.
Another major stressor for travelers is parking. Fine Airport Parking will handle that one for you! Have you already booked your flight? Click here to reserve your parking space before you arrive!
