According to Jason, there will come a time when parts of the plane will be connected by wireless networks. Therefore, when maintenance time reaches, they will automatically raise the alarm. This connection will serve to enhance the safety of the airlines.
Customer service will also be improved by the Internet of Things as a client’s boarding tickets will be sent through their emails. People will be guided by beacons through their journey.
Luggage handling will also be improved as tags will be embedded on the passengers’ cargo, and they will be able to monitor them as they travel. Making the airline industry efficient is just a tip of the iceberg, Jason Hope anticipates that the future will be brighter with the Internet of Things.
