Passengers Take Control of Music at Tulsa International Airport
TULSA, OK – July 21, 2014 – Today Tulsa International Airport launched a partnership with TouchTunes Music Corporation that will let passengers take control of music played inside the terminal building. Tulsa International Airport is the first airport in the world to give control of the music experience to their passengers.
The new service provides airport guests the opportunity to select music and determine the order of songs played based on credits they purchase at a juke box inside the terminal or via the TouchTunes app on their smart phone.
Jeff Mulder, airport director, sees the service as a compliment to the airport’s overall effort to improve the travel experience for airport guests. “We often receive feedback from passengers regarding the background music that is playing in the terminal,” Mulder said. “Now, if passengers want to hear a specific song or genre of music, they have the ability to change what’s being played.” The airport is still able to control what type of music is played and will block songs with explicit lyrics.
The airport anticipates the agreement will generate at least enough revenue to cover the cost of the service. TouchTunes is the largest in-venue interactive music and entertainment platform and is featured in over 60,000 bars and restaurants across North America.
