Travelling to Istanbul in Turkey?
Be prepared to be greeted by the world’s largest indoor airport LED signage.
Korean company Samsung has announced it has completed its smart signage at the new Istanbul Airport, which will be the world’s largest airport once fully-completed, serving 200 million passengers annually.
The airport will host 2,000 arriving and departing aircrafts, with flights to 350 destinations.
The Samsung project includes nearly 70 LCD and LED signage, including LED displays covering a total of 1,012 square meters. The total surface area of the LED displays is equivalent to that of 2.5 basketball courts.
The project was successfully completed by a technical team of 28 in only 45 days with the help of B.T. Global, specialised in digital signage, security, data storage and IT services.
Samsung’s LED signage will welcome visitors who enter Istanbul Airport with two giant 193 square meter LED screens at the international departure gate near the hotel area and the front office.
Passengers will also encounter Samsung LED signage from arrival halls and baggage claim areas to check-in areas, passport control and lounges.
Anneke Hart, Head of Professional Display Solutions at Samsung South Africa says the new signage is cutting edge.
“We are proud to participate in one of the most significant projects in Turkey’s history and a great achievement in global aviation.”
Chief Executive Officer of Istanbul Grand Airport (IGA) Kadri Samsunlu says they appreciate the quality of Samsung’s cutting-edge technology together with Media Port Istanbul’s market experience for the new Istanbul Airport to take one step further to grow as a major travel hub.
