Visitors to any of New York City’s major airports are going to be able to get quick information in a new way, thanks to a high-tech customer service rep.

FOX News Radio’s Lisa Lacerra reports:

Avatars will be able to answer questions on everything from where the restroom is to where passengers need to go to connect to their flight.

(Hologram Demonstration) “I never take a break, don’t charge overtime, hardly ever take sick leave and I don’t need a background check.”

The virtual worker will be projected on a pane of glass, says the Port Authority, which control New York’s three major airports.  She was designed to improve customer service.

It’s all part of a larger initiative to help customers at airports.  The Port Authority will also increase the number of customer care representatives – real people – by 20% during peak hours.
