World’s first full deployment of beacons across entire airport

Sept 24, 2014

Miami International Airport is the first airport in the world to have a complete and open deployment of beacons. Beacons, which are deployed at entrances, check-in, gates, baggage claim and valet parking zones throughout Miami International Airport are registered and managed via the SITA Common-Use Beacon Registry.

Each beacon broadcasts its identifier in the zone and this can be used by airlines, retailers and other partners’ apps to trigger useful content to passengers or staff via Smartphone apps.
