The entire end-to-end airport experience needs a major overhaul
Future Travel Experience
Improving the travel experience for passengers is usually seen as the responsibility of airports and airlines, but the important role that planners, designers and architects can play in defining a positive passenger experience should never be underestimated, especially when building a new facility. Allowing passengers to interact with the infrastructure around them, giving an airport a true sense of place, and making the process of getting from check-in to departure gate as simple as possible are all vital elements that must be given great consideration when planning the airport terminal of the future.

ACC Institute Webinar
Small Community Air Service
September 16 | 12:30 – 2 p.m.
Due to a number of factors including the overall economic recession, fuel costs, airline bankruptcies and consolidation, and new rules on pilot training and rest, air service to many of our nation's small communities is in jeopardy. According to a report release by the Government Accountability Office in April of this year, from 2007 to 2013 small hub airports have seen a 20.1% decrease in flights and non-hubs have seen a 18.1% decrease. That all compares to only a 9.1% decrease at large hub airports over the same time period. Hear the latest trends and more importantly, what airports and communities are doing to save air service at this ACC Institute webinar.
