54 Communicate with the Passenger A P P E N D I X B The following section provides additional detail on the best practices for communicating with the passenger. Consider this general guidance related to the use of communication methods as you consider the implementation of specific touchless solutions. Thinking about the airport journey from a wayfinding perspective, the journey really begins before the traveler leaves home. The remote processing of boarding passes and the use of digital wayfinding tools to anticipate the journey all contribute to the wayfinding experience. Once a traveler approaches the airport, this moving from the preplanned journey transforms to the physical environment. Due to the dynamic nature of environments that are changing due to modified passenger processing, travelers rely on communication hubs that support each decision point. Below are some key elements of the journey. Approach Roads Travelers approaching the airport make many decisions. Whether parking, returning a rental car, dropping off or picking up, all require communication to the distinct routing. Considerations for dynamic operational requirements supported by a flexible, digital communication system may become part of this process. Overhead signs using full-matrix boards controlled by systems facilitate items such as queue management and flexible airline counter assignment. Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Roadways. Parking and Arrival Parking Decisions around parking can be considered on the roadway system. Long-term, short-term, premium, and economy parking products all require users to make decisions before entering the garage. Within the garage, drivers want to find a parking spot as quickly as possible, then be reminded of where they parked,

Curbside and Terminal Entrances Like the approach roads, curbside dynamic signs can extend the flexible communication method needed to allow for varying operations of the airport. This wayfinding element can effectively direct travelers to the most appropriate entrance that suits the operational condition. Check-In At the airport check-in hall, being able to communicate information on queuing, baggage drop-off, and other specific processes can be enabled in a wide variety of methods. A âribbonâ of communication can provide linear orientation to the passengers. This, in collaboration with the dynamic roadway and curbside systems, can create the greatest flexibility for communication. The integration of flight information, check- in information, and sense of place can be accommodated within check-in structures in a compelling manner.

Security Identifying security points and informing travelers of wait times can help with queue management and overall traveler expectations. These are also opportunities to communicate other operational messaging. Airside Gates Gate signs can go beyond simply identifying the gate number. These elements can also provide specific destination information, weather, flight status, or sense of place imagery.

Flight Information Flight information displays placed at key decision points and areas where passengers have dwell time can be another method for clear communication. The scale of these elements can depend on the architectural environment. Calgary International Airport Flight Information Displays.
