Network With Fellow Passengers While Waiting At The Airport

WaitList is a new social app that allows travelers to meet up with people interested in chatting about similar subjects at the airport

Most travelers can agree that waiting around in an airport can be frustrating, especially when it feels like you’re not doing anything productive in the long hours before you take off. WaitList, a new social app, is hoping to solve that problem by connecting interested strangers in airports.

The idea is simple: Enter a subject you’re interesting in discussing, be it a topic of light conversation or something work-oriented, as well as your skills, and the app will show you other people in the airport looking to have a chat. Once both participants agree, the app lets them know of a nearby airport cafe where they can meet and have a conversation before boarding.

While this is app is not designed specifically for dating or making business connections, it could provide opportunities for both. Given that the platform is so open in its nature, there’s no restriction as to how it can be used. However, as with all social apps, users will have to be cautious about people they meet.

While the app is still in beta, interested users can try out the web version to connect with strangers in the area.
