The Port Authority of NY & NJ (PANYNJ) has again chosen the Parabit team to design, manufacture, install digital kiosks and to provide monitoring and content updating services for the new Welcome Center within JFK International Airport’s Terminal 5i, which opened on December 23, 2014. This new Welcome Center is in addition to 18 other Welcome Center installations completed by Parabit within JFK, LaGuardia, Newark, and Stewart Airports.
“I am excited to be working with the Port Authority at JetBlue’s new International Terminal at JFK,” stated Robert Leiponis, president of Parabit Systems. “Our previous designs have been extremely successful. The Terminal 5i center will enhance their passengers’ experience while transitioning to their final destination.”
Parabit’s iconic Welcome Centers provide an area of safety and information, and provide visitors an easily identifiable service location to assist with navigation beyond the airport. The Welcome Center features digital signage kiosks that operate Parabit’s “eTract” software, designed to attract, engage and inform users with digital displays and telephone directories.
The Welcome Centers will also feature Parabit’s “eBrochure” software, which provides an unlimited capacity of digital brochures on local attractions within a small footprint. The digital brochure kiosks provide touch-screen access to hundreds of “Things to Do” and with a scan of a QR code, the user can receive the information on their smart phone, or receive SMS messages with their requested details.
