Today we have discussed about the future of our airport. First of al nowadays, in the airport there is a lot of different shop, for example, there is the cinema, restaurant. But I think the future of the airport is lots of the things are controlled by machine for example, the check in and the luggage. But at the same time some man is need, because if there is some system or power problem the machine can’t work and the manpower is need to control everything. Let me explain more about it, there are some robot to help those don’t know how to use the machine and for the luggage with carry by the robot and it can set a code for safety. I think that in the future of the airport is needed to build more facilities. For example, the Wi-Fi and the 3G facilities for the company staff also the computer for children to play. Lastly, my conclusion is the future airport is very convenient and lot of the thing is controlled by the machine.

We have discussed about the future of our airport.There are many facilities in our airport now,like hotel,tour,special need access,excess baggag etc.
Also,there are devided in two terminal,each of them are many services and facilities,such as shops,public phones,prayer room,post office etc.
I imagine that Airport of the Future are more wonderful and colorful,It can give a good feeling when they walk in it.Beside,it will no more man-power,most of them are control by the machine,and the airport may have different topic of the wall,like different places in different countries,it may attract more customers.

our group think that the future of airport should have wi-fi, self-check in. When there is a typhoon, people can connect their families or friends. People can trade in the airport. Some businessman need it. Self-check in can faster the rate of check in.

Today, our group discuss the airport of the future.We think that everything will be countroled by machine. No more man-power is needed.In the future, we think that in the airport, is serviced by the robots, but not the whole are the robots. It will have some people in the airport to take care the airport and take care of the robots that have any error!Then, if the robots have any problems, the people can take a look and continue the service!Also, there will have some shops in the airport. For example, there is the favouite brand- Gucci, or have some restaurant etc.We think that the airport should have more facilities in the future! For example, the Wi-Fi for the internet. It can make the people who not too bored in the airport, can’t it?

They will check in counter.We hope there will be some robbots to serve the customers.We oppose use machine to control the plane in the future.Because if there’s just a little problems with the machine,the plane will be broken down.

Robots help to carry luggages before aboard.
Set up self check-in counter and just check-in before aboard.
Passengers can use their fingerprints to check in.

A super computer systems will be use for check-in.

Today we have discussed about the airport of our future.We only need to use our fingerprint to check-in so that it can increase the rate and more convidence. Also, there will have machine to help us to take care of the baggages. We can store some money into a card. When we are shopping,we just need to use the card instead of paying money. At last,the price will be cheaper!

Today,we have discussed:

We think that the time for checking-in is too long. So, it is important to sort out different classes in different check-in express. Nowadays, most of the airports have check-in/out counters, shops, luaggage counters, information counters etc.
In the future, we suggest to computerize the check-in process. Every passenger can only take a photo for checking-in. Also, add a supermarket.

Today, we have discussed the airport in the future. We think there is a special service for passengers who is waiting for the plane. We want to set up a massage service. Because people think that it is wasting time for just sitting to wait for the plane, so set up this service can relax them and not waste any time, also, make their blood circulation be better on plane.
