This article notes that new airport design concepts have generated new airport management problems. Flight Information Display Systems (FIDS) have been shown to be an efficient instrument whose proper application can result in sharply improved internal distribution of information both to passengers and to operations personnel. The most significant FIDS installation is located at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. Three FIDS are working as an integrated mode, the integration of these three systems operate a single powerful fully automated multiple input/output FIDS. It is noted that at present the system most sought after makes use of "Flap Type" display signs of a large variety of sizes and functions together with a multitude of video channels that can be used to repeat the information shown by signs or to show different types of information altogether. No airport, regardless of its size and complexity of operation is complete and fully efficient without a FIDS.
