Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Michigan, USA, has completed the installation of 23 new state-of-the-art digital terminal directories to improve passenger wayfinding ahead of the Christmas holidays.

The installation includes two unique 98in ultra-high definition (UHD) 4K displays, which utilize boarding pass scanners to visually plot the shortest path to a customer’s gate. The 98in displays are the largest of their kind in the world.

The airport has enjoyed a successful period of growth in 2015, with new routes from Virgin Atlantic to London, UK, and JetBlue and Frontier to three destinations in Florida, USA. Detroit’s hub carrier, Delta Air Lines, also announced new non-stop international service to Munich, Germany, starting in May 2016.

Thomas Naughton, CEO for Wayne County Airport Authority, the airport operator, said, “We have had a busy, productive and successful year at our airports. These new routes and passenger amenities should help all our travelers navigate and enjoy our terminals with ease, and in the spirit of the season.”
