Gráinne Morrison from The Future Factory at Dublin Airport describes who the future human of the airport will be.

Dublin Airport is expecting more than 50m passengers to pass through its halls each year by the middle of this century. By that time, the average person visiting will be a lot different in terms of profile.

Gráinne Morrison, a futurist at The Future Factory at Dublin Airport, is someone who is eager to be on top of the latest trends of automation in particular, which is why she took to the stage at Inspirefest 2018 to talk about the Honest Eats initiative.

The Honest Eats concept offers passengers the chance to bypass the queues in the food hall and pick up what they want at a cashless self-checkout stand.

Morrison foresees there being a significant increase in middle-class passengers and that the majority of them will no longer be travelling in multiple groups, but often alone, as the concept of daily commuter journeys becomes more widespread.
