When it comes to flying, security and convenience are often the two main concerns of travelers. In a world of terrorism and the Internet of Things (IoT), airports around the country are doing their best to appease these fears and desires.
Just this past year, we’ve seen a number of “airport security fails” occur. In early November, the Department of Homeland Security uncovered disturbing failures by the TSA during an undercover investigation at multiple airport security checkpoints.
On President’s Day, nearly a dozen people walked through an unscreened security checkpoint lane at John F. Kennedy Int’l Airport. During the summer, the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) failed 95% of undercover airport security tests conducted just prior to the heavily traveled Fourth of July weekend.
Despite these incidents, more and more airports have begun installing better security solutions. Dozens, such as the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, have installed biometric scanners for travelers to verify their identities.
Travelers also want amenities such as charging stations, free Internet and convenient food options.
AT&T Internet Service compiled a list of the most high-tech airports in America that feature all of the features and amenities above, plus many more.
