Big passenger gains from Salt Lake City makeover.

first_imgA rendering of the airport redevelopment. Image: SLC. It’s been 50 years—five full decades—since Salt Lake City International Airport got more than a mere makeover.Now, that’s about to change.Delta Air Lines’ pivotal western hub is getting a full-blown $US3.6-billion blitz of a rebuild.Phase One is set for a 2020 debut. The last of the massive project is set to come online four years later.The terminal layout will be the soul of simplicity: a large central terminal connected via an underground passenger terminal to a pair of linear concourses. This arrangement will replace the present geriatric terminal.The new facility is set to move both passengers and aircraft about more efficiently. A case-in-point is that most up and down movements via escalator will be eliminated, making the terminal easier and quicker to navigate.The efficiency theme carries through to the tarmac. Salt Lake City airport (SLC) says the new concourses will eliminate aircraft parking bottlenecks, allowing airlines to get their aircraft to the gate and back into the air faster than they’re able now. The bottom line for passengers is fewer delays.The Salt Lake City Department of Airports says the US$3.6-billion rebuild is being paid for entirely through user fees, primarily by the airlines. Salt Lake City International contends, “Even after the project is complete, SLC will have a significantly lower cost per passenger than other major US .” This matters much to continually cost-conscious carriers.”READ: Luggage fees soar as airline bagmen strike.A bit of context: SLC as we know it today is the product of the 1987 merger of Delta and Western Airlines, a classy major airline that fell prey to the merger mania that swept the airline industry in the late 1980s.Currently, Delta commands some 70 percent of the 370 daily scheduled departures. The airport lofts nonstop flights to almost 98 cities.Delta can fly you nonstop from Salt Lake City to London and Paris. KLM flies nonstop to Amsterdam.When the airport’s spacious new terminal and complex become a reality (workers recently “topped out” construction of the project’s first phase) international market access should get a boost, opening up even more connections alternatives—especially for flyers used to arch-rival Denver International.DEN lies a mere 391 air miles to the East, over the Rocky and Wasatch mountain ranges.last_img read more

AdMob: iPhone Internet Use Sees Major Growth Spurt in August

first_imgAccording to the latest data from mobile advertising company AdMob, traffic from Apple’s iPhone on AdMob’s advertising network almost doubled in August. Apple’s iPhone saw the fastest growth of all smartphones worldwide, closely followed by the Samsung Instinct. It is also noteworthy that the top 5 smartphones in the U.S. generated 54% of all smartphone traffic. The iPhone is now responsible for 7.8% of all smart phone traffic in the U.S., up from 5.2% last month. It’s important to note that this does not necessarily reflect the actual market share of the iPhone, as iPhone users, thanks to the ease of use of the iPhone user interface, are probably spending more time online on their devices than most other smartphone users. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… frederic lardinois What About Nokia, Palm, Motorola, and Rim?While Nokia devices were responsible for just over 62% of all smartphone traffic worldwide, none of Nokia’s smartphones ranked in the top 20 in the U.S. Palm’s Centro, on the other hand, looks like a major boon for the company, as it is only trumped by the Blackberry Pearl when it comes to traffic volume. Motorola, which does not have a single smartphone ranked in the top 20, still dominates the mobile traffic rankings with its RAZR V3. which was responsible for 3.7% of all mobile Internet use worldwide in August. The iPhone was the 17th most used phone on the mobile web and generated 1% of all worldwide traffic, up from 0.6% in July.The iPhone is clearly growing quickly in the U.S. and now that Apple seems to have gotten its supply chain under control, chances are that it will continue on this track. However, it is also important to point out that, in the overall market, Apple is still only a small player. Most users, according to AdMob, are still accessing the mobile web on a RAZR.
