Easyjet is to trial new technology across European airports that aims to help passengers better navigate their way through the airport.
The ‘iBeacon’ technology, which is being trialled at Luton, Gatwick and Paris Charles de Gaulle airports, triggers notifications to passenger’s mobiles during “critical points of the airport journey”.
The notifications are automatically activated as passengers approach bag drop and security – prompting them to open their boarding pass at the right time so it is ready to be scanned and advising when passports need to be presented.
Easyjet is trialling the technology during the peak summer period with a view to rolling it out across Europe if it proves popular with passengers.
Easyjet’s commercial director Peter Duffy said: “This is another example of how Easyjet is innovating to make travel easier for passengers across Europe.
“By becoming the first airline to trial iBeacons across Europe we can help speed up the airport journey and provide assistance to our passengers making it even easier to fly with Easyjet”.
In May Easyjet announced it was developing drone technology to help with aircraft inspection.Easyjet.com
