Abstract

Airline self-service check-in kiosks are increasingly becoming an option for today's passengers. This article aims to develop a model, using the technology readiness (TR) construct, to predict passenger's intentions to use a self-service check-in kiosk. Structural Equation Modeling is applied to determine the validity of the model and the hypotheses. The findings show that TR has a positive effect on attitudes toward kiosks, attitudes toward the kiosk provider, and overall intentions to use a kiosk. Interestingly, attitudes toward kiosks positively affect attitude toward the kiosk provider. Further research recommends using cross-cultural data.
