Hewlett-Packard Co., along with software developer Hanson Inc. and manufacturer Meridian Zero Degrees, have deployed 10 touchscreen information kiosks at Port Columbus (Ohio) International Airport, according to the Columbus, Ohio, Business First.
The kiosks, which are intended to provide information on weather, restaurants, lodging and other services, are scheduled to be ready for the start of the holiday travel season, with installation scheduled to start Nov. 19, Columbus Regional Airport Authority spokeswoman Angie Tabor told the paper.
The kiosks will be outfitted with 42-inch screens that can display information for inside and outside the airport. A telephone on the side of the kiosks will ring to the information desk on the baggage claim level or to the airport's communications center.
The kiosks also will allow travelers to print information, or access it through their mobile device via a QR code or URL.
