New partnership with Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Today, we are delighted to announce an exciting and progressive new partnership with Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
On a continuing mission to improve the passenger experience of more than 21 million annual passengers, CrowdVision technology will be used to optimise the full passenger experience beginning with arrivals ‘curbside’ at terminal 4.
Focusing on 3 key areas, CrowdVision will analyse ‘curbside’ actions to manage passenger arrivals and vehicle congestion.
