Huge new video wall unveiled at Frankfurt Airport

Frankfurt Airport has unveiled a giant 180° LED Video Wall called the 'Entertainment Gate', which it hopes will wow passengers waiting for their flights.

The eye-catching attraction between Gates B44 and B48 in Terminal 1 is an impressive 21 metres long and 1.6 metres wide and is said to be a global first in terms of its technical sophistication.

According to airport operator, Fraport, the installation provides viewers with "fascinating glimpses" of behind the scenes activity at the gateway.

One film, for example, shows the journey of a suitcase from the check-in counter through the maze of underground tunnels and baggage conveyors to the airport apron and from there into a plane’s belly hold.

The other visual highlights include vivid larger-than-life sequences that bring alive the bustle of vibrant megacities like New York and Tokyo across the entire screen.

“The video wall innovatively enriches our broad entertainment and information offering for passengers,” says Thomas Kirner, who heads Fraport AG’s Service Quality department.

“The spectacular intallation creates a genuine ‘wow effect’ and turns the time that travelers spend waiting in the gate area into an experience to write home about.”

Fraport points out that its motto 'Gute Reise! We make it happen', expresses its strong commitment to serving passengers and meeting their individual wishes and needs.

As part of this philosophy the airport operator therefore regularly adds new services and facilities while improving existing ones to enhance the customer experience.
