Display systems
FIDS at the airport
It is a very busy day at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, with planes landing or taking off over every few minutes. At the airport terminal, passengers are checking in while others check their flight schedules displayed on the large screens located across the arrival and departure halls. The displays are part of the FIDS the airport uses to keep passengers informed of their flight schedules. As a group of travelers walk by, they check one of the screens, and then head towards the boarding gate, confident of their boarding time and flight schedules. This scene is typical of many busy airports in China and around the world.
