AIRPORT SIGNAGE. CONVEYING CLEAR COMMUNICATION

For 40 years, passengers using New York's Kennedy International Airport went to a terminal named after a specific airline to catch a flight. And, for many years, it worked well. But as a result of deregulation there was a substantial increase in the number of carriers. Thus, later in the summer of 1996, passengers will have to use a numerical system in which their flight is in a terminal designated 1 through 9. The problem is how best to communicate the changeover to passengers who had become so used to the old system. For the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the solution involves bigger signs and increased letter spacing. It will be color-coded for ease of use.
