Visitors of one of the busiest airports in the world use PnT LBS system to navigate in the facility

Seoul, South Korea – June 19, 2024 – People and Technology Co., Ltd. (PnT), an enterprise software service company led by CEOs Hong Sung-pyo and Im Jin-soon, has announced its participation in the renewal of Incheon International Airport’s official guide application, ‘Incheon Airport+.’

Launched earlier this year, the revamped ‘Incheon Airport+’ app aims to offer more convenient guidance services to the rapidly increasing number of airport users as post-COVID-19 travel surges. The app features an intuitive interface reflecting the latest app trends and enhances passenger convenience through advanced real-time indoor navigation services based on sophisticated positioning technologies.

Last June, PnT participated in a project to upgrade the mobile guide app as part of Incheon International Airport Corporation’s (IIAC) efforts to expand user-centric services. This project, centered on the innovative LBS V2 (Location Based Service Version 2) technology with dynamic machine learning, solidified PnT’s presence in the industry. Continuing their collaboration, PnT has contributed to the recent ‘Incheon Airport+’ renewal, reinforcing its market position.

For the ‘Incheon Airport+’ renewal, PnT has focused on strengthening the real-time indoor navigation service by utilizing a complex algorithm integrating various positioning technologies such as beacons, Wi-Fi, device sensors, and geomagnetic fields. The app provides comprehensive information on entry and exit facilities, commercial spaces, and amenities across Terminals 1 and 2 and the Concourse.

Through the ‘ICN Map’ category in the ‘Incheon Airport+’ app, users can access real-time information on optimized travel routes and estimated times throughout their airport journey. Additionally, the app includes features for passengers with mobility challenges, offering optimal routes free of obstacles like stairs and escalators, ensuring swift and convenient travel to their destinations. To date, the app counts over 1,5 million downloads – iOS and android all combined.

Prior to the ‘Incheon Airport+’ renewal project, PnT successfully implemented the IoT-based smart asset management system ‘IndoorPlus+’ at Incheon Airport. In 2022, this solution was further expanded to cover the entire Terminal 1.

A PnT representative stated, “‘Incheon Airport+’ is expected to enhance passenger convenience by providing a smart travel experience and showcase the excellence of domestic indoor positioning technology to global travelers using Incheon Airport. PnT plans to continue advancing its technology to offer ongoing service upgrades.”
