Travel portal TripAdvisor launches dedicated pages on 200 airports
Travel portal TripAdvisor on Wednesday launched dedicated airport pages on its website which provides information to travellers about 200 major airports around the world. When travellers search for an airport on TripAdvisor, they will be directed to a dedicated airport page with reviews, ratings and other information about hotels nearby as well as restaurants and attractions in both public and transit areas.
Amenities, including <g data-gr-id="29">duty free</g> stores, boutiques and airport lounges, will also be listed on the page, the company said in a release. "Over 3.1 <g data-gr-id="30">billion</g> travellers pass through airports each year with the average traveller spending 150 minutes from arriving at the terminal to the doors of the plane closing at the gate," TripAdvisor Senior Vice President for Global Product Adam Medros said.
With the launch of airport pages, not only will travellers have access to airport information at their fingertips, but businesses will also be able to market themselves directly to travellers worldwide searching on TripAdvisor, he said.
The new service would help them quickly find things to do on the site while they're waiting to catch a flight, or book an airport hotel when they need a place to stay, he added.
TripAdvisor airport pages will be available on its all 45 sites and in 28 languages globally and on the TripAdvisor mobile app. Travellers will be able to use the "Near Me Now" feature on the
TripAdvisor mobile app to find amenities nearby through the smartphone's GPS when they are at the airport, the release added.
