Long Island MacArthur improves flight information updates

LinkedIn +

New York State’s Long Island MacArthur Airport, owned by the Town of Islip, has invested in new passenger information systems from IT provider and close neighbor, SITA.

SITA is installing new displays that are bigger, brighter and easier to see. There will also be a new large double-sided video wall with the latest information for passengers as they leave the secure area. Displays at the ticket counter are also being upgraded.

Angie Carpenter, Town of Islip supervisor, said, “SITA’s AirportVision and AirportVoice technology will work together so that any flight information updates will automatically be displayed on all screens and announced in real time over the public-address system. We also plan to roll out updates on our website and to give passengers the choice to receive them via email or SMS. Having the latest updates provides our passengers with the information they need to feel relaxed at the airport.”

The new SITA systems are expected to be up and running at Long Island MacArthur Airport before the end of 2019.
