AirPod to arrive

Said by its promoter to revolutionise airport experience for travellers AirPod, has launched a beta prototype, in preparation for the first commercial trial to be implemented in EU airports in autumn 2018.

AirPod is a private capsule-like unit designed to be installed in public locations such as airports, hotels, train and bus stations or shopping centres.  This comes as a solution for people seeking a private area to relax, sleep or work without having to leave the airport. In order to provide comfort and enhance user experience, the AirPod encompasses features such as an ergonomically designed seat that converts into a bed, free high-speed wi-fi, air conditioning and air purifiers, USB and power sockets, luggage and personal belongings storage and information about flight status.

Currently in its last phase of development, blueprints for beta prototype are underway, with plans firmed up for a commercial trial to begin in autumn 2018 at EU airports, thanks to a global distributer that enables access to a global network of airports.
