Actually, greetings from Boston and the conference of Airports Council International World/North America.
I spent the day roaming the exhibit hall in search of new services and amenities that might make a difference for folks stuck at the airport.
The good news: there are some intriguing new products and services coming to an airport near you.
The bad news: it may take a while for some of the best new ideas to actually get installed at an airport near you.
Let’s hope these two items (from two different companies) spread like…germs.
The Hygolet: automatic sanitary plastic seat covers. Brilliant.
(Candy-filled toilet for display only …)
Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer – super fast, super sanitary, (sort of loud) no-touch hand-dryer.
I’ve seen both of these products in a few airports (and hotels and restaurants) and the reps for each company promised to send me a full list of airport clients soon. In the meantime, if you’ve spotted these at your airport, let me know.
More from the exhibit hall tomorrow…
