What 2023’s Travel Trends Mean For Airports

For many, 2023 feels like the first year in a long time where everything is back to normal. We can once again sing along to our favourite bands at concerts, go wild on an all-you-can-eat buffet and exercise indoors until our hearts are content.

However, one of the biggest changes the world has witnessed in recent years is undoubtedly the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the travel industry. The restrictions seemed endless and many of us were left wondering if things would ever go back to normal; this has, of course, heavily impacted current travel trends, meaning more of us are ditching the staycation in favour of jetting abroad.

Staycations are out

Remember when everyone was forced to holiday at home? This meant the rise of staycations i.e. holidaying in your own country instead of travelling abroad.

Understandably, now all international borders are back open, airport traffic is likely to be the highest for a few years.

Therefore, it’s absolutely essential that all airport conveyor belts are working properly and efficiently as they will likely be working at full capacity for some time.

How can an airport conveyor belt be made more efficient?

Regular maintenance and inspection of conveyor belts are essential to prevent breakdowns and ensure smooth operation. Scheduled maintenance should include belt cleaning, lubrication, tension adjustments, and replacement of worn-out parts.

Although implementing a proactive maintenance strategy reduces the risk of unexpected disruptions, ensuring you’re purchasing a quality belt to begin with can make a huge difference.
