Global airport information mobile app flightSpeak has introduced a new security wait time feature, CheckPoint, for business and leisure travellers.

Designed to help passengers better anticipate security line delays, the new feature provides estimated wait and screening times for security checkpoints at the busiest airports worldwide.

flightSpeak founder and CEO Leo Osahor said: "With huge crowds, potential bad weather, and eager families travelling with young children, holiday travel can be unpredictable and stressful.

"We want to help travellers by providing them with more certainty about what to expect when they reach airport security lines."

"We want to help travellers by providing them with more certainty about what to expect when they reach airport security lines and useful information about what they can do at the airport once they get past them."

flightSpeak will provide advance notice to passengers and help them to arrive at the airport with enough time to clear potentially lengthy security lines.

The new CheckPoint feature is a combination of flight volumes, weather information, and machine learning to improve wait time estimation accuracy.
