About the Work Live

This is an more responsive and cleaner Airport Pickup system based on the original 2009 version, where some parts had become redundant and required a good scrub. Every January and September international students arrive in UK to study at Kingston University. The back-end allow them to keep track of which terminal and what time the students arrive at what airport. And also keeps track of which Halls of residence they will be taken to at a later stage.

Nice touch

While filling out flight details the drop down get pre-populated with related content and helps us predict which terminal the student will arrive at. Bit of a bugger to keep the database up to date when Teminal 2 reopened, yet worth it to ensure students arriving in a new country get a good first impression.
