Copenhagen Airport in Denmark has unveiled a 26ft digital wall to supply passengers waiting in the baggage reclaim area with a diverse range of information about their onward journey.
The wall is divided into three sections with touch screens displaying tourist information, transport information and a ticket machine for public transport in Denmark and Sweden. There is also the option for a video call with a member of staff from the Copenhagen tourism office.
Henrik Peter Jørgensen, vice president, external relations at Copenhagen Airports, said, “Our collaboration with the Municipality of Copenhagen to provide digital tourist information ensures that passengers can make good use of their waiting time in baggage reclaim. Although our joint efforts with the airlines and handling companies have significantly reduced waiting times over the past year, the new digital information gives travelers good opportunities to get an overview of both transport options and the sights.”
Carl Christian Ebbesen, mayor of culture and leisure for Copenhagen, said, “We want to meet tourists in the open urban space and at cultural institutions, but also at the airport. This is where tourists get their first real encounter with Copenhagen and Denmark. This first-hand impression is important, and in this context, inspiring and informative tourist information plays an important role. The digital tourist information at the airport will help welcome tourists and give them a good start to their stay in Copenhagen.”
