How did the process begin?

Through manual audits, the client had confirmed that if wait times in the Check-In and migration processes exceeded 15 minutes, sales fell by at least 13% and continued to fall as the wait time increased.

This was due to the stress that these frictions generate in passengers, which predisposes them not to make purchases.

"We needed to improve service so that our passengers have a frictionless experience and increase sales in commercial areas.


In the Check-In area we encountered a complex technical problem, since with the usual sensors it was not possible to measure the waiting queues because the airlines have counters and variable service, and the lines develop in a chaotic manner. At that point the company KSI appeared and was able to solve the problem"

What was done?

Actions that were carried out:

  1. Monitoring of all waiting lines and friction areas. 

  2. Measurement of waiting times individualized per person, and at Check-In, segmented by Airline and Flight.  

  3. Automatic notifications in case of increase in people in waiting lines. 

  4. Implementation of automated passenger experience SLA reports for the Airport and Airlines

"After implementing KSI to monitor wait times and obtain accurate information, we established SLA (Service Level Agreement) service standards for each congestion point and entered into agreements with airlines to introduce a data-driven continuous improvement program.


Something that surprised us about KSI was the ability to measure the waiting time for each passenger individually. With other providers, this measurement is carried out through indirect algorithms"

What results were obtained?

The client managed to improve the experience of its passengers, which led to an increase in its revenue by establishing a quality standard in the service and developing a continuous improvement plan backed by data. 

The necessary investment in infrastructure for the project was minimal, because cameras were located at high altitudes, allowing 500 m2 to be covered per camera, which compared to a sensor approach reduced the number of monitoring points by 10 times.

"Finally we were able to measure the length and waiting times in the different areas, including the queues that formed naturally. This allowed us to reorganize and redesign some waiting areas differently, and establish a standard of service for the different actors , imposing benefits in case of compliance with the standard, which reduced passengers' bad friction experiences by half
