“We have created a platform that not only sets a precedent in the region, but also provides a better travel experience and passenger service from their personal space, or from points that avoid queuing,” said Erick Barboza, marketing director at AERIS, the airport manager.

How does it work?

From this February 22, airport passengers can access the platform through the link or through the QR code placed in the boarding rooms throughout the terminal.

DÜ is available from check-in with the airline and prior to entering the boarding lounges, and then pick up purchases at the meeting points designated for this purpose, or directly at the store.

Users must register their means of payment, flight information and location. In addition, once the merchant processes the order, the user will be indicated the time of delivery.

Delivery is at no extra charge.

The platform is inspired by the Bribri community, which in their language, this monosyllable means “birds.”

“We chose the word ‘birds’ in the Bribri language, as a metaphor for what the platform will be in terms of speed,” added Barboza.
