Upon reflecting on many flights we've taken, both domestically and internationally, we've realized that so much time is wasted waiting to arrive at the destination. We saw an opportunity in that people who want to make the most out of their time don't have the tools to do that. We wanted to create an environment where passengers can tailor their experience at an individual level to their own preferences.
What it does
Our web application matches passengers with other passengers who share their own interests. This creates a personalized experience, providing an immense source of value for passengers.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
It took us some time to get used to the API and for many of us, it was our first time working across the web stack.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
We learned the most about connecting the front-end to the back-end to gain experience working across an entire web tech stack to create a fully-functioning application.
What's next for AirBuddies!
We hope to see this idea implemented with a robust back-end and database that accepts multiple user inputs. In addition to this, we'd like to further improve on scalability with the hopes of having the program be integrated within the functionality of a large scale airline.
