Situm deploys its guidance technology at Peru’s capital airport, an opportunity to make it easier for passengers to find their way around the premises while providing managers with valuable information on visitor flows to optimize spaces and procedures.
Jorge Chávez International Airport is the main gateway to Peru, with more than 20 million passengers per year. For some time now, the airport managers have maintained a high pace of introducing measures to adapt to this growth and to continue guaranteeing the quality of services and an optimal operation of the terminal.
Within this framework of actions, the launch of the passenger app, which includes the guidance functionality developed on Situm’s innovative indoor location and navigation system, capable of positioning smartphones with maximum precision while requiring minimum infrastructure, took on special relevance.
Thus, the airport app opens the possibility for thousands of users to automatically locate themselves in the airport facilities and get directions on how to get to their destination using the fastest route. The app also displays information on different points of interest and services for better use and enjoyment of the facilities.
In addition to bringing benefits to passengers, the system provides managers with key geo-information on passenger flows for more efficient planning of facility use.
With this deployment, Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport becomes a reference in South America in the implementation of indoor navigation systems and joins the list of major airports worldwide that have already deployed Situm’s innovative geolocation and indoor navigation system.
