I got three notices from the San Antonio International Airport (SAT) today.
One was about Delta reinstating service from San Antonio to Cincinnati. That’s good.
One was about the airport jumping into the world of social media with Facebook and Twitter accounts that will be used to keep travelers up-to-date on weather, flight delays, cancellations, and other airport news such as contests. The airport is already promising prizes to its 500th Facebook Fan and its 500th Twitter follower.
SAT also promises to use Facebook and Twitter to alert travelers to concessions specials and discounts, like this week’s candy sale at Natalie’s Candy Bar in Terminal 1 by Gate 10, where there are 16 different candies in 1 lb bags selling for $2.99 each. (Not that I would admit to buying a pound of candy at an airport, but I’m pretty sure that’s a good deal.)
While you’re at the airport, snacking on candy or just hanging around, be sure to check out the airport art, including Gary Sweeney’s neo-retro tourist tourist posters at the entrance to the parking garage.
They look just like vintage travel ads, but on second glance you’ll see that they’re pleasantly, wackily, off.
