An airport is one of the busiest places in the world, especially during the holidays. People are taught to expect bigger crowds of people rushing to get on their flights. Foot traffic at the airport is always going to be some form of chaotic, this is why it is important for airports to have traffic counters to at least streamline some of the chaos. Traffic counters are useful tools for airports to have, the traffic counting technology allows the staff to make informed decisions about passenger traffic. The lines at the security checkpoints can get pretty long, and the people in them can be pretty impatient. Traffic counters can help airport staff to manage the lines and keep everything running as smoothly as possible. Implementing traffic counters in airports will not only make it easier for airport staff to see where the travelers spend most of their time after they pass the security checkpoints. Traffic counters can also potentially increase the number of purchases travelers make at duty-free stores. Counting airport foot traffic is not only helpful to the staff but it’s important to travelers as well by managing overcrowding in highly trafficked areas. Managing real-time traffic is hard to track if you don’t have the technology to do it. A traffic counter will also help stores in airport terminals keep up with performance trends for their specific store. Simply put traffic counters can make traveling easier for everyone, and make going to the airport seem like less of a chore.
