Amazed at... Signs - When you’re at the airport, you rely on the signs to point you in the right direction. Walkways - As you’ll see, the reason for many of these designs being the way they are is to prise as much money out of the traveller as possible. The golden hour - Still on moneymaking, let’s explain the concept of the ‘golden hour’. The ‘golden hour’ is what airport managers call the first hour after you’ve cleared security. Windows and lights - Modern airports tend to be designed with lots of glass, such as this one in Indianapolis. Everywhere you
turn in new airports, there are huge windows. Departures and arrivals - In most airports, certainly the larger and more modern ones, arrivals is on the ground floor, and departures is on the floor above. Mobile - If you’ve travelled on a plane in the last few years, you’ll know you now have the option to do everything via your phone. Security - Airports are unfortunately prime targets for terrorists, with attackers hitting terminals in Belgium and Turkey over the last couple of years. Floors - Even the floors in airports are designed for a purpose. Firstly there’s
wayfinding. In Atlanta , the floor tiles at check-in are coloured to lead you through the airport to the ticket counters. Art - Have you ever wondered why modern airports often contain giant works of art, like this one in Vancouver, or this one in Heathrow? There are many reasons. Queues - When you go to the airport, you’re going to have to queue. It’s a fact of life.
