Airports in the US now generate 46% of their revenue from space rental, parking, and other non-aeronautical sources, according to Airports Council International.
These offerings represented $9.7B in revenue in 2017, a significant increase from the $9.1B generated in 2016.
Over the past few years, airports have transformed themselves to provide better services and activities for travelers, as they become more and more like shopping malls — adding new stores, restaurants, and even on-demand fitness.
In this briefing, we dive into how airports are:
- Improving the airport access and navigation to save passengers time
- The impact of ride-hailing companies and self-driving vehicles
- Speeding the security process using biometric technologies, including facial recognition
- Transforming airports into shopping malls and an innovation lab for retailers
