San Diego International Airport (IATA: SAN) has repurposed part of its former Commuter Terminal to serve as a space where innovators can conceive, develop and test emerging technologies and business concepts that have the potential to transform the airport experience for future passengers.
The high-tech testing ground currently features a 3,500sq ft workspace with a model ticket counter, gate and baggage belt that collectively represents a de facto ‘mini-terminal’ where innovators can brainstorm and beta-test new ideas, products, processes and systems.
The airport says it will collaborate with industry innovators and local enterprises to develop solutions that can be deployed at SAN and/or marketed to other airports. It adds that its new Innovation Lab also gives it the opportunity to create partnerships with organisations dedicated to helping early-stage technology companies succeed.
