Is it May already? tripchi airport app update

The latest news in airports, aviation and travel – brought to you by the tripchi airport app.

Apr 2015, Spring is really here edition

Spring is finally here, and between Spring break and Summer travel musings beginning to take shape, the tripchi airport app is there for you as your airport guide. While you’re killing time at the airport, we’re hard at work building new experiences, #layovertips, and airports into our mobile web app.

Coming to an airport near you. What are the next airports on tap for the tripchi airport app? Boston-Logan International Airport (BOS) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO), which conveniently are some of the only airport with open APIs to access their vendor content and location information. With the addition of API-based airports, we are able to extend our data model to include not only scraped and manually entered airport content, but also direct airport-generated content – which is easier to keep up to date. As more airports are exposing their vendor information to developers looking to build travel applications, we stand ready to be the umbrella airport mobile app that provides you the most up to date airport information.

New to the tripchi airport app community? tripchi will help you make the most of your time at the airport. We’ll tell you your dining and shopping options, as well as #layovertips, such as airport art and other lesser known airport hacks and adventures. And, you can browse lounges, find special deals and offers, and track your flight information. We’d love your feedback on the tripchi mobile website.

How can you help? If you are in the airport or airport retail industry, can you pass your airport connections our way? We are looking at running a limited trial to prove that we can help not only airport guests, but also airports!
