A study by Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport has shown a 33% reduction in security queue times following the implementation of the BlipTrack Analysis Platform and sensors last summer.
The BlipTrack Analysis Platform and sensors collect non-personal data from passenger’s smartphones and tablets to monitor queue and wait times at the airport’s security process area. This information is then displayed on information screens in the terminal and the airport’s website. The airport, in cooperation with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), was the first in the US to utilize the Danish-made technology.
Candace McGraw, CEO at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport, said, “Our significant investments in our facilities and BlipTrack ensures we use them as effectively and efficiently as possible. Our customers have come to appreciate the quick accessibility to real-time information via our monitors and website, seeing that queue times are consistently well managed. Behind the scenes oversight of dashboard applications and established key performance indicators confirm a high-performance and easing of wait times in queues.”
Peter Knudsen, CEO at BLIP Systems, said, “As air travel is continually on the rise and airports often have limited space to expand, the pressure on border authorities to balance security with a good passenger experience grows. This leads to significant bottlenecks, with delays that frustrate travelers. Being able to utilize performance data, enables a dynamic management of resources, reduces costs for all operational stakeholders, optimizes passenger satisfaction and ensures a first-class airport image.”
