Navigating an airport can be stressful even for a seasoned traveler, but with the introduction of the Mumbai T2 App, it's becoming a whole lot easier to get around the Mumbai International Airport.

Mumbai International Airport launched the first ever indoor navigation app for India, using augmented reality to make the journey inside Terminal 2 seamless. The app uses a combination of beacon technology and push notifications to aid users through processes like getting ready to depart or book a taxi service. The app also offers an in-depth virtual walkthrough of different parts of the airport to make it a little more familiar to first-time visitors.

As well as helping travelers curate their own "experiential tour" of the airport, this app is a huge part in keeping guests informed and the terminal quiet, since it has cut down on making public announcements.
