¡No todos los días nuestros clientes celebran la implementación de nuestra tecnología con bailes en las calles! But yesterday Miami International Airport changed the traditional “Fat Tuesday” – to “App Tuesday” and had bands and dancers throughout the terminal.

Airport terminals are arguably the most technology-reliant buildings open to the public. The heavy reliance on technology has prompted architects to collaborate with IT specialists during the design phase of new airports and terminals. (SITA was involved in this early collaboration during the building of intelligent airports in Sao Paolo (GRU) and Rio de Janeiro.)
