Complexity of operations

With a growing number of flights and airlines, airport operations are becoming increasingly complex. It is imperative for airports to have reliable and efficient flight information display systems that enable passengers to plan their journeys smoothly. The PADS4 platform’s FIDS component makes this possible.

Successful FIDS case studies

PADS4 has been involved in many countries and airports, but the case study below is one of the best demonstrations of how innovative technologies can be used in flight information display systems to improve the overall experience.

Success story : Eindhoven Airport

With the opening of the first terminal at Eindhoven airport, PADS4 delivered the first phase of its Smart Airport Signage solution, implementing the FIDS (Flight Information Display System) and PADS4 digital signage software to display flight information in the arrival/departure area, check-in counters, security area, gate area and baggage claim area.

With some fifty screens strategically placed in these areas, passengers can quickly find out where to check in and whether their flight will depart on time. Delays or gate changes are visible on these screens in a matter of seconds.

The aim was to provide an intelligent airport display solution to display relevant travel information and improve the overall traveler experience at Eindhoven Airport.

“PADS4 provided a robust and dynamic solution that matches the critical environment in which we operate on a daily basis,” says Eli Lejeune, Marketing Director at Eindhoven Airport. “With airport-wide displays in all crucial areas, our intelligent airport signage provides real-time flight information, ensuring that 3.4 million travelers a year are well informed, leading to optimized passenger flow through the airport,” he concludes.
