Facebook: Airports and airlines are still playing catch-up when it comes to apps

Smartphones, apps and business opportunities

“We now have a symbiotic relationship with our smartphones, and for business it just creates a tonne of opportunity,” McCabe explained. Among the myriad organisations in a position to exploit these opportunities are airports and airlines, but he said that bar one or two examples, most are playing catch-up, especially when it comes to apps.

“One of the questions we get asked a lot by companies is: ‘Should we develop an app or mobile web?’ So if we look at the big companies in the US for an indication – the majority of website visits are mobile-only or multi-platform. If you look at Amazon and eBay and what they’re using, it’s apps, so apps are dominant. The companies who get it are developing good apps that are working well.”

While “any travel company should be racing to develop the best app possible and then get it landed as fast as possible”, the problem is that most airlines and airports are lagging behind other industries, he explained.

“I haven’t seen any airports yet that are doing a good job with that. I think travel is playing catch-up. If you look at all the travel companies, I think the start-ups are doing the best job, I think the OTAs (online travel aggregators) are then following. I think airlines and hotels are playing catch-up, and I put airports behind that.” In his keynote address in Las Vegas, McCabe will offer insight on what airports and airlines should be focusing on in order to improve their performance in this space in the months and years ahead.

Focus on doing one thing well

McCabe did give away one valuable tip: focus on doing one thing well, instead of doing multiple things averagely. “Uber is a good example, it’s a good experience,” he said. “I open Uber, it gets me a taxi, that’s it. Two clicks, a taxi is on its way, it works well. Other companies like Skyscanner and Flightsearch, two clicks and it does one thing well. So I think the companies that will win will have to do one thing well, rather than have several different apps or one app trying to do 10 different things.”

McCabe went as far as to say “I haven’t seen an airport app that offers a great experience” even though “there’s so much more you can do with apps”. “I don’t think they’re connecting well. There’s definitely not personalisation there. I don’t think the context is there, or the leveraging of signals,” he added. He suggested that airports should view their app more as a platform, which provides the vital flight information and services, but which can also be enhanced and developed by third parties; another point that McCabe will build upon in his presentation at FTE Global.

Facebook-owned Oculus Rift, which will be launched in early 2016, provides an example of how a platform model provides widespread benefits. Hinting at its potential use cases in the travel sector, McCabe explained: “I can see someone checking out the plane before they book – put Oculus on and look around the cabin and get a feel for where my seat is,” he explained. “For hotels, I can check out the hotel room before I get there. Oculus is a platform, so as with any platform you launch it and developers get hold of it and you’ll see things emerge that we probably didn’t expect, and use cases emerge – I think that will happen pretty quickly.

“It’s one of those technologies, like the iPhone, where you saw the iPhone for the first time and it was just 10 times better than what we had before – it was incredible. The first time you use Oculus, it’s the same.” Some airlines, namely Qantas and Transavia, have already started to explore the potential of virtual reality technology, and McCabe clearly expects this to be just the beginning of a much wider trend.

Miami airport: Apps, kiosks shorten wait times at immigration control

Miami airport: Apps, kiosks shorten wait times at immigration control

International travelers use the Automated Passport Control-(APC), for US citizens and permanent residents used for re-entry in to the United States on Friday May 8, 2015.The nooriously long waits at Miami International Airport’s immigration control areas have eased partly because of technological improvements like automated passport swipe kiosks and mobile phone apps that enable some passengers to breeze through immigration, a senior U.S. official said at MIA Friday.

“Even as travel volumes continue to rise, wait times at Miami International Airport are down approximately 16 percent since their peak in fiscal year 2013,” said Alejandro Mayorkas, the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security.

Emilio González, director of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department, which runs MIA, confirmed Mayorka’s statements that immigration lines at MIA have grown shorter.

“Empirically, it is,” said Gonzalez at the Mayorkas press conference which was held in a long MIA corridor lined with electronic machines where U.S. citizens and permanent residents could swipe their passports and green cards to enter the country. “All these kiosks are for people that don’t have to make the line.”

The fact that Homeland Security and MIA officials agree that passport control lines are shorter than they used to be is a departure from the concerns that Gonzalez and other airport officials expressed publicly.

In March last year, for example, Gonzalez flew to Washington to plead with federal authorities to increase the number of passport control officers at MIA because wait times at immigration lines were too long.

Now, Gonzalez said Friday, MIA, Homeland Security and other “private partners” are working in unison to continue improving the passport control experience.

“I used to receive complaints all the time,” said Gonzalez. “Now I can’t remember the last time I received a complaint.

In March 2014, Gonzalez said before leaving for Washington that in one case a group of travelers had to wait 2 ½ hours in the immigration line before being admitted.

“In fiscal year 2014 alone only 5.6 percent of passengers waited longer than one hour, representing a nearly 50 percent improvement from fiscal year 2013 when over 10 percent of the arriving passengers experienced a wait time of over one hour,” Mayorkas said,

Mayorkas and Gonzalez attributed the improvement in part to the new machines that allow travelers to swipe their documents and in many cases skip the passport control booth.

Mayorkas cited three examples of passport control automation that have greatly contributed to ease the passenger crush .

These are the so-called global entry system kiosks for pre-approved passengers; automated passport control self-service kiosks for U.S., Canadian and visa waiver travelers; and mobile passport control phone apps.

“Currently, nearly 20 opercent of all inbound travelers to Miami International Airport use the automated passport control kiosks,” said Mayorkas.

The mobile passport application, which is currently still in pilot phase, allows travelers to complete a customs declaration, submit passport information and upload a photograph prior to inspection.

Once information is submitted, the app generates an electronic receipt sent to the traveler’s mobile device with instructions.

42% of travellers use Smartphones to plan and book trips

42% of travellers use Smartphones to plan and book trips 

Image result for airline flight check-inMobile usage is on the rise throughout the entire traveler journey and more are using their smartphones to book parts of their travel, according to the TripBarometer Connected Traveler¹ report released today by TripAdvisor. The report defines “Connected Travelers” as those who have used a smartphone to plan or book a trip and offers an in-depth insight into their habits and behaviors. The study was conducted by independent research firm Ipsos and reported on more than 44,000 global responses from travelers and the hotel sector.

Key findings:

  • 42 percent of travelers around the world are Connected Travelers, having used a smartphone to plan or book a trip
  • Connected Travelers are twice as likely as all other travelers to make travel-related bookings via a mobile device: 12 percent of Connected Travelers booked their accommodation via a smartphone, as compared to 6 percent of  travelers overall
  • Almost half (45 percent) of Connected Travelers say they “usually” use their smartphones to book activities for a trip
  • Almost three quarters (72 percent) of Connected Travelers use their smartphones to look for restaurants while on vacation
  • 34 percent of Connected Travelers want their accommodation to offer mobile check-in

Emerging markets have a large number of Connected Travelers – nearly half (49 percent) of Asians fall into the Connected Traveler group and this is particularly driven by travelers in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and China. South America has the highest proportion of Connected Travelers with 57 percent followed by the Middle East (55 percent).


“The TripBarometer Connected Traveler report uncovers key emerging trends among a growing group of influential travelers using mobile devices to plan and book their trips,” said Adam Medros, senior vice president of global product, TripAdvisor. “While booking travel via mobile is ultimately on the rise for all types of travelers, Connected Travelers are far more likely to see their smartphones as a booking device, both before a trip and while in-destination. Through travel apps, Connected Travelers are also finding their way around, looking for places to eat or things to do and reading reviews to make the best choice.”
