View welcomes aviation experts Andy Kuchel and Kristi Crase to the team
Andy will lead View’s overall Aviation strategy as VP, Aviation, backed up by Kristi as Strategy Director. Both are formerly with Quantum Secure, part of HID Global, where they led the aviation strategy to define and evangelize an identity based security solution category for airports.
“I’m looking forward to working with every airport to create first-class passenger experiences,” said Kuchel. “View Dynamic Glass reduces glare and unwanted heat within the terminal, providing a more comfortable environment for passengers and airport employees while also enabling airports to reduce their carbon footprint.”
Their arrival comes at a time when a large and growing list of leading airports are rapidly adopting dynamic glass and setting a new standard in delightful passenger environments.
In June, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) announced they would install up to 500,000 square feet of smart windows in DFW’s passenger terminals. This came after a study at DFW’s Gate A28 and a nearby restaurant showed that View Dynamic Glass significantly improved passenger comfort over conventional glass, resulting in an 83 percent increase in passenger dwell time at preferred gate seating and a 102 percent increase in concession sales.
View has installed dynamic glass at several airports including Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT), San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).
Come introduce yourself to Andy and Kristi at View’s ACI-NA Booth #1531 in Nashville, TN.
