TripAdvisor Gives Layover Relief With New Airport Pages
We have all been there. You are in the airport and the touch screen directory doesn’t work or there are two kids playing on it. Or the mobile app that the airport is so proud of is clunky and archaic or you just don’t want to download another app.
TripAdvisor is looking to take the pain out of layovers. The company has begun rollout on their new dedicated airport pages.
The company's first airport page debuted today and it is for Singapore's Changi Airport.
"With over 54 million passengers in 2014, Changi Airport is one of the leading airports in the world," Aaron Hung, TripAdvisor's director of partnerships, APAC, told CNN. "Their focus on passenger service makes them an ideal choice as our launch partner."
The page gives you quick access to three boxes across the page entitled, “Stay Near the Airport,” “Eat Before you Board,” and “Inside the Terminal.” There will also be a GPS-enabled feature called Near Me Now which will tell you - wait for it – what is near you now!
TripAdvisor plans to have airport pages for 200 airports in total. You can expect New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and London Heathrow Airport to debut in July. The pages are going to be available in 28 languages.
