It will mean that passengers will be able to hold up their phone to find out about surrounding shops, restaurants and services, as well as being able to get directions to their gate.

The technology, which uses wifi and signal strength triangulation to pinpoint passengers inside the terminal, is a world first, according to the developer, aviation technologist SITA.
