Digital experiences are beginning to converge, and quantum computers, web services, virtual assistants, and connected travel are all part of the equation. How will Siri and Google Now evolve to assist in travel experiences on iOS and Android? How can AirBNB, Uber, and hotels become one seamless travel experience? How will iOS apps, Android apps, and iOS developers or Android developers begin to grow their connected travel footprint with connected mobile app experiences and quantum backend systems? This is connected travel, and it’s weirder than you imagined. Mobile native apps make the mobile processes and formalities of connected travel more obvious and accessible throughout the travel journey. With mobile boarding passes instantly accessible from the native app platform’s lock screen, passengers have up-to-the-moment mobile information and can skip cumbersome lines at the airport. Biometric authentication platforms and mobile payment platforms enable quick mobile transactions and mobile identification to accelerate past obstacles. And wearable integration of all of these connected mobile systems will only make connected travel tasks more instantaneous and unobtrusive. As mobile technologies and digital experiences continue to emerge that make our lives easier and more connected, travel remains one of the foremost examples of these mobile marketing optimizations in action. At every stage of the connected travel experience, digital and mobile innovations have helped travelers shave time and costs off of their mobile travel experiences. Travel is the testing ground for new technologies just before they go mainstream—and replacing the travel agent is just the beginning.
