It is also possible to check in and passport checking online as well so it becoming more easy to travel by air easier and quicker. Technological factors bring competition within the companies as well. Many airlines such as British Airlines and Virgin Atlantic try to offer the best service in order to satisfy their customers. They use the best technological products and have the best for their passengers. British Airways now have internet access do their passengers can use internet which allow passengers to do their stuff online. Technology is not just use to improve their products and services all travel and tourism industry are using technology to promote their products.
