Tulsa International Airport has installed new passenger automated double lane exit doors from Concourse A.
The airport says the new doors are similar to ones on Concourse B, which were installed last year. The doors replace a revolving door, which TIA says frustrated passengers who had to wait in line waiting in to leave the secure area of the airport.
“We heard the voice of our passengers and took action,” said Tulsa International Airport CEO, Mark VanLoh.
“The new system improves passenger satisfaction and reduces operating costs for staffing and maintenance – a fantastic solution for all parties.”
TIA says the revolving doors only allowed two passengers to exit every five seconds, while the new doors can accommodate about 7,200 passengers per hour.
The airport says the new doors also save the airport money by eliminating the staffing a guard at the exit lane.
