According to the New Jersey Institute of Technology, airports in the U.S. are not equipped to keep up with increasing passenger traffic or to comply with industry standards and regulations.
“Airports in the U.S. are facing a multitude of challenges that must be addressed urgently to make flight experiences more pleasant. However, this may be difficult since most airports are facing funding shortfalls that are expected to last through 2040,” the institute said. “Luckily, strategies such as privatization and data-driven monitoring of passenger and cargo traffic can help airport operators to resolve these issues. Airports that leverage the power of the terminal flight data manager streamline operations and provide accurate information to air traffic controllers and the flying public as well.”
