Study hints Middle East travellers concerned about travel tech intrusion
It is unusual for a travel tech trends report to raise the idea some tech initiatives could cross over from helpful to intrusive. Intrusion could be a specific concern of Middle Eastern travelers.
Global property developer Colliers International has produced a travel tech trends report which looks specifically at the Middle East region.
While virtual reality travel and electronic baggage labels are generic and familiar, “spontaneous travel” is a fresh idea. The report suggests that apps which can service demand for “day trips within the GCC, given the short flight durations” are in a strong position to exploit this trend.
It names Hopper and Utrip as examples of apps which are meeting this need in the region.
Cloud-based or cyber-passports are mentioned as a trend which could benefit the Middle East’s increasingly crowded airports.
