Travel Tip: New Apps That Can Help You Navigate Airports

Locations in this article:  Amsterdam, Netherlands Chicago, IL Phoenix, AZ

airportIf you’ve booked a connecting flight lately, you may have noticed that the airlines often give you very little time between those connections.

At many airports, where the walk between gates—or in some cases, between terminals—can be more than a mile, changing planes has become a challenge of Olympic sprinter proportions.

Now there are some apps that can help you navigate airports more efficiently.

Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport now has a directions app.

United Airlines is testing an app to get you through Terminal C at Newark, where it’s easy to get lost.

You know what that could mean….delays.
