In this fast-paced era, when it comes to traveling, people will also habitually choose short time and fast transport; in this way, more and more people choose to fly. The airport serves as a “stop” for planes to dock, connecting transportation hubs worldwide, and is an important place for travelers to travel. In the airport, LED display, as an advanced information display tool, is playing an increasingly important role.
Airport LED display is a general term for all the LED displays we see in airports, so have you seen those airport LED displays? This post will bring you together to take stock of what are the airport LED displays!
1. What are the benefits of airport LED displays for airports?
People often choose to use something because it can bring some benefits to themselves, just like you choose to use an airplane as a means of transportation for this trip because it is short and fast. So, what are the benefits of using LED displays at airports?
We can look at it from 2 aspects: one is from the perspective of a passenger, and the other is from the perspective of an airport manager or LED display buyer.
1.1). As a passenger:
Enrich waiting time: Each of us will arrive at the airport early to wait for the flight. Some tourists may come 1-2 hours early, then there will be a long waiting process. During this waiting process, there may be impatience. LED The display screen can play some introductions about local cities to divert passengers’ attention and enrich their waiting time.
Provide real-time information: LED displays can be used to display real-time information such as flight schedules, boarding gate information, flight delay or cancellation notifications, etc., helping passengers obtain the latest flight updates in a timely manner.
Provide navigation guidance: Airports are often large, with many floors and areas, and it can be difficult for newly arrived passengers to find the correct gate, exit, baggage claim area, etc. The LED display screen can provide navigation guidance and maps to help passengers find their destination quickly.
Convenience of travel: LED display screens can be used to display tourist attractions, local cultural information, airline promotions, and other information to provide passengers with more travel suggestions and recommendations.
Improve safety: LED displays can also be used for emergency notifications and alerts. In the event of an emergency or incident, the airport can quickly release relevant information through the LED display to remind passengers to take necessary safety measures.
1.2). As an airport manager or LED display buyer:
Improve information transmission efficiency: The LED display screen can update flight information, boarding gate changes, delay notifications, etc., in real-time, making it easier for passengers to obtain the latest information. This can reduce the need for passenger consultation, improve the efficiency of information transmission, and reduce the burden on staff.
Strengthen the brand image: By displaying the airline’s logo, advertising, and promotional content on the LED display, the brand image and visibility can be enhanced. This helps attract more passengers to choose the airline and improves its market competitiveness.
Advertising revenue opportunities: Airport managers can use LED displays to play advertisements, bringing additional revenue sources to the airport. Airlines, travel agencies, hotels, and other related companies can place advertisements on the display screen to obtain publicity effects and commercial returns.
Improved safety: LED displays can be used for emergency notifications, alarms, and instructions. In an emergency, airport managers can quickly release key information, convey emergency measures to passengers, and help maintain safety.
Data analysis and management: LED displays can be integrated with other systems, such as flight information systems, security inspection systems, etc. Managers can understand passenger flow, dwell time, popular routes, and other information through data analysis in order to make corresponding strategic decisions and improvements.
Create a special airport: Airports are the first thing travelers see when arriving in a new city and, therefore, play an important role in communication and culture. Modern airport design incorporates elements of art and heritage into eye-catching attractions, such as at Singapore Changi Airport, two famous LED-based “digital murals” showcase the city-state’s historical and cultural imagery.

2.1). Flexible LED display:
A flexible LED display is an LED display that can be bent, twisted, and folded and is made of flexible materials. The modules are highly adaptable and can be bent and customized to suit different venue shapes and needs
2.1.1). Its features include:
Flexibility: Flexible LED displays can be bent, twisted, and folded as needed to adapt to installation environments of different shapes and curved surfaces. This makes its installation in special scenes or special-shaped buildings more convenient and flexible.
Ultra-thin and lightweight: Flexible LED displays use flexible substrates and lightweight designs, making them thinner and lighter than traditional rigid LED screens. This makes it more convenient to install in locations with greater weight and space restrictions, such as airport walls and ceilings.
Durable and Reliable: The flexible LED display uses high-quality flexible materials and reliable LED chips for durability and stability. It can adapt to different indoor and outdoor climates and environmental conditions and maintain stable operation for a long time.
2.1.2). Generally installed in the following locations of the airport:
Wall: Wall locations such as airport halls, waiting areas, and baggage claim areas are common choices for installing flexible LED displays. Due to its flexible properties, it can be installed in a curved manner according to the shape and curvature of the wall and integrated into the architectural design.
Ceiling: Flexible LED displays can be suspended or embedded in the ceiling of the airport to provide passengers with information, navigation guidance, and advertising.
Column: The column location in the airport is also a potential installation point for flexible LED displays. The display screen can be wrapped around the column through wrap-around lamination, providing a multi-angle display and beautiful effects.
In short, flexible LED displays can be applied to airports’ walls, ceilings, and columns, flexibly adapting to different installation needs and providing functions such as information transmission, navigation guidance, and brand promotion.
A small-pitch LED display (also known as a high-definition LED display) is an LED display with a higher pixel density and a smaller pixel pitch. Generally, the pixel pitch of small-pitch LED displays is less than 2 mm and can even reach the sub-millimeter level.
2.2.1). It has the following characteristics:
High resolution: The small-pitch LED display has small pixel spacing and many pixels so that it can present higher resolution and clearer images. This allows it to provide detailed, sharp visuals when viewed at close range.
Super large size: Since each pixel is very small, small-pitch LED displays can be spliced into very large screen sizes in a modular manner, which is suitable for airports that require larger screens.
Bright colors: The small-pitch LED display adopts high-quality LED chips and driver technology, which can present rich, full, and realistic color effects. This makes the displayed content more vivid and attractive.
Wide viewing angle: The small-pitch LED display has a wide viewing angle range. Even when viewed from different angles, the image can maintain consistent brightness and color without obvious brightness attenuation or color changes.
2.2.2). Small-pitch LED displays are usually installed in the following locations in airports:
Information release area: The information release area of the airport is one of the main locations for installing small-pitch LED displays. These displays can be used to display real-time information such as flight information, flight gates, baggage claim areas, etc.
Lobby/waiting area: In the airport lobby and waiting area, small-pitch LED displays can be used as advertising screens to display airline promotions, tourist attraction promotions, and other related information.
Baggage claim area: Small-pitch LED displays can be used in the baggage claim area to provide passengers with baggage delivery status, guidance, and related information.
The outdoor fixed LED display is a kind of LED display used in outdoor environments. It has the characteristics of wind and rain resistance, high-temperature resistance, and dust resistance. It is adaptable to various harsh weather conditions and can operate stably outdoors for a long time.
