Multimedia information panels are mounted in the Koltsovo International Airport (member of the Airports of Regions Holding). Digital screens are devised to help guests to feel confident in the airport. Convenient interface, useful options and services of city smartphones make it possible to get required information, order goods and services and make free calls to any telephone numbers in Russia and go online.
Four multimedia panels have the form of giant smartphones (55” screen). They are located in the domestic terminal of the Koltsovo Airport: in common check-in and arrival areas and in the departure waiting zone. Installation of 11 more screens is planned by early June: in the luggage claim area of the international and the domestic terminals.
“Interactive panels have been installed on the verge of the FIFA World Cup, when an inflow of foreign guests is expected in Koltsovo. The content of smartphones is accessible in five languages: Russian, English, German, French, and Spanish. This significantly expands their audience and makes it possible to familiarize guests of Ekaterinburg with the city already in the airport, when waiting for luggage,” notes Evgeni Krasikov, Strategic Communications Director of the Airports of Regions MC. “I am confident passengers will see value in convenience and broad opportunities of new equipment,” he adds.
Further to airport information, Koltsovo passengers and visitors can make themselves familiar with sights of Ekaterinburg and the Ural Region on interactive screens, find and order goods or service of interest by phone and make a selfie - two video cameras are installed in the public smartphone, just like in the real one.
The interactive panels installation project is implemented within the framework of cooperation of the Ural air hub, Aeromedia advertising operator and Timilink advertisements posting service. Koltsovo has become the first airport in the country offering such service to its passengers, making the trip even more comfortable, convenient and pleasant. Giant smartphones are planned for installation in other airports of the Airports of Regions Holding after the testing period of service in Koltsovo.
Please note that the Koltsovo Airport is improving the service quality and enhances the service level for visitors on a going basis. 14 cafes and restaurants, more than three dozens of stores, pharmacies, a post office and two bank offices are currently operating in Koltsovo.
