A new report released by CAP Strategic Research gives insight into the airport of the future–and predicts that air travel may become less of a chore and more fun by 2025.
As reported by CNN GO, the CAP report believes that airports will make adjustments to improve the airport experience. These changes will mean less hassle in terms of dealing with lines, immigration and security and will give passengers more time to spend on leisurely activities, like eating and shopping.
Among the predictions are:
- Elimination of check-in desks. Some airlines, including Qantas and Singapore Airlines have already started removing check-in desks.
- Streamlining immigration procedures through e-passports, biometrics and ID cards
- Creating a “trusted traveler” program for frequent travelers to undergo security checks and then receive a biometric security pass that will allow them to avoid lines at security
- Using scientific methods to create more efficient plane boarding procedures
