Aviation Environments

Airport wayfinding isn’t just about improving the travel experience. It’s a crucial part of airport operations. When travelers can’t find their gate or are late to flights, a ripple effect occurs that can disrupt travel nationwide. Strong wayfinding is essential to avoid creating massive delays. 

Airports are busy, time-pressured places, so it’s important to develop human-centric designs that guide people without overwhelming them. These designs need to be cohesive and unified to subtly provide directions to thousands of passengers every day. GNU Group has extensive experience in managing complex aviation wayfinding projects. 

Using Aviation Wayfinding to Improve Operations 

Aviation wayfinding isn’t an easy concept to get a handle on, as there are so many exits, entries, and moving parts to consider. We use three proprietary processes to create wayfinding programs that work for busy airports. 

With our airport wayfinding programs, you can establish wayfinding signage that controls costs, guides travelers, and takes the burden of providing directions off employees. Our scalable solutions are the most cost-effective way to manage aviation wayfinding for the long term.
