Each kiosk will have eight different stations, and with all the changes the airline is thinking that they will be able to decrease wait times up to 75 percent. We like the idea of a free-flowing system and an open floor plan, but we’re thinking that it might take a little bit of training to get all the tourists and locals used to the new system.
Another additional improvement is the way in which the US Department of Agriculture checks each piece of luggage for rogue plants or animals, as now, passengers will send their bags through the checkpoint after checking in with the airline. Previously this had to be completed before checking-in, so it will also speed things up a little bit.
If you’ve got a tropical vacation planned anytime soon, you may be one of the first to check out the airport updates, as Hawaiian Airlines wants everything to be completed by this June.
