Our sources for wait time data vary and may include federal agencies such as the TSA and CATSA or information from the airport and its affiliated service providers. For airports Qsensor does not track automatically, we source data from passengers that have inputted their wait time using the “Add Wait Time” button.

Qsensor is not affiliated with any airport, airline or associated service provider.

Although we regularly check queue times for accuracy. All times are estimates and waiting times may not accurately reflect your experience. It is advisable to arrive at the airport well in advance and follow the recommendations of the airlines and airports.

There are a wide array of ways that queue data is measured. Including but not limited to looking at how long a passenger takes to get from scanning their boarding pass to exiting the security area. Auditing passengers on how long it took them to pass through security as well as Qsensors’ proprietary system for user added wait times. 

We currently support 234 airports worldwide, for 83 of those, we track the wait times automatically. Whether it be London Heathrow, Istanbul or Miami – we have got you covered.
