How to Display FIDs for Airports
How to display FIDs for Airports a bustling hub where time is money, airports need to communicate with passengers continuously and effectively. That’s why they rely on flight information display systems. These digital boards deliver real-time flight status, gate and baggage information to passengers as they move through your airport.
But how exactly do these flight information displays work? What is the software that controls these screens, and how do airline counter representatives make sure their data is 100% (or as close to that) fail-safe?
How FIDS Benefits Airports
Using a central database system, FIDS automatically updates flight operations for staff, gate and baggage claim monitors. It also distributes flight status, gate or luggage belt information to other airport systems such as L-DCS, BRS, VDG and more. It is a fully automated and fully integrated solution for airports that want to reduce costs of human resource.
Airport screens display information live from the air traffic control system, giving travelers accurate and up-to-date flight times, airlines, departures, arrivals, and gate locations. They can be displayed in various formats including rows and columns, urgency tiles, or both, to accommodate the diverse learning styles of your traveler audiences.
Additionally, airport screens can include non-airline content such as entertaining news, weather forecast, boarding information, and more. This adds value to your passenger experience and increases the effectiveness of your airport marketing. Additionally, it helps passengers pass the time, improving operational efficiency. This is especially important for crowded and unfamiliar airports.
