Signs of the Times at Hartsfield-Jackson
By John McCullough

Several formerly static directional signs work a new way at Hartsfield-Jackson.

A pilot program has begun to replace current directional signage inside the Airport with electronic signs that can be updated in real-time. The screens provide travelers with the most current information. Adding new content will be a mouse click away vs. someone having to physically replace outdated signs.

Making changes electronically is less labor intensive,” said Project Manager Ronald Pittman of the Information Services Division. “These signs will help ensure that customers aren’t misdirected due to outdated information.”

The new signs are in place on Concourse B, Concourse D and in the Terminal North ticketing area. Currently, the screens project a general location directory. Future plans under consideration include adding news content, flight status or Airport information.
