How Mobile Technology is Changing Travel (Infographic)

It might be no surprise to learn that 74% of first and business class passengers own a Smartphone. This makes sense since most of them will be travelling on business and good communications are important. With the availability of Wi-Fi technology in most major airport terminals, passengers are able to check for vital information by a simple swipe of a screen. 77% of these searches relate to flight information services and over half relates to security check point times. Even before we get to the airport, there are a plethora of apps that are dedicated to assist us in our travels. Easy Jet is just one of a number of airlines that have created apps which allow us to check in online the day before our flight or even en route to the airport. This practice is becoming more and more popular with over half of these travellers receiving regular SMS updates direct to their phones.
