Given the extended periods of time many people spend waiting in airports, it stands to reason that there is a large demand for airport innovations.
Comfort is a significant concern when sitting at the airport for hours at a time. For that reason, a multitude of seating options have been created, from adjustable airport seats to secluded sleeping pods.
Flight security has also become an issue at airports. However, technologies like liquid-testing lasers and full body scanners are being implemented to keep flights safe.
Though many airport innovations have a focus on keeping travelers safe and comfortable, airports are turning to gimmicks to attract more traffic. Spaces like Hobbit-based lounges and floating airports are created to attract more visitors based on their novelty.
