Prague Airport has installed a total of eight digital signage systems to provide essential travel information at the entrance to pier B in Terminal 1.
The signage displays information on digital screens and consistently updates the traffic and passenger flow in real-time.
Currently under trial, the digital signage will display information in six different languages, including English, Czech, Arabic, Russian, Korean and Chinese.
The screens will be tested until the end of October. If successful, they will then be installed across the remaining areas of the airport.
Prague Airport is the Czech Republic’s main airport and operated by Letiště Praha.
Letiště Praha’s board of directors chairman Václav Řehoř said: “As the number of flights at Prague Airport continues increasing, so does the number of passengers with specific language requirements.
“The growing amount of air traffic calls for information to be provided faster and more efficiently. Therefore, digital signage is another project of Prague Airport’s technology development, which goes hand-in-hand with its construction development.”
The system will display departure and arrival information.
During the day, the selected language will change depending on passenger movement, using information such as where they are flying from and their destination.
Compared with conventional signage, the new system will offer additional details such as gate details and emergency information.
For arrivals, passengers will be informed about how to reach a particular part of the airport, which carousel will have their luggage, and the current weather in Prague.
Pictograms will also be displayed to highlight nearby passenger services, including restaurants, bathrooms and first-aid equipment.
