If you’re one of those people who hesitates in the airport by an Auntie Anne’s, unsure of how far your gate is—and unsure about what food options lurk beyond—then have we got news for you: An update to the TripIt app, released today, now lets travelers see the distance between two specific points in an airport and get step-by-step walking directions for the shortest route between them.
Specifically, the app update includes enhanced airport maps that show charging stations, ATMs, restrooms, dining options, and more. Got a tight connection? The app will also show you how long it will take to move from terminal to terminal or gate to gate, and adds directions for the most direct route—think of it like Google Maps, but for an airport concourse. Enter your itinerary, and airport maps will be available for each leg of your trip under the app’s “flight details” tab.
