How far is it to my gate? Many passengers nervously ask themselves this question when it’s getting close to their flight’s departure time. Frankfurt Airport has now reduced this stress factor by installing new display boards in both terminals that list not only the current flight data and departure gate, but also the time it takes to walk there – in orange characters. It only takes a quick glance to find out whether you’ll need one or five minutes.

The new display boards with walking times are located right behind the security and passport checks. Eight of them are being installed in Terminal 1: two in Pier A just after the Travel Value shop and the other six in the non-Schengen part of Pier B. There is also a new display in the Schengen part of Terminal 2. As soon as a gate has been assigned to a flight, the time it takes to walk there is also displayed.
The displays with walking times are part of the “Great to have you here!” service program that Frankfurt Airport has launched. It comprises a long list of improvements that make it even more comfortable and convenient to take off from Germany’s largest airport. In 2011, more than 56 million passengers used Frankfurt Airport.
