Static Maps

Running to a flight just before the gate closes may be romantic in movies, but it’s a terrible experience when flying. That's why Amsterdam Schipol Airport, the fourth-busiest airport in the world, designed their signal terminal layout to help each of their 68 million annual passengers get from one side of the terminal to the other in 45 minutes -- without having to sprint.

Schipol's Indoor Web Maps

To help, they’ve built detailed indoor maps of their terminals across web and mobile that allow travelers to plan their layover, gate change, or dinner plans ahead of time.

Schiphol iOS app

And when you’re not rushing to meet a connection, their self-service kiosks inside the terminal allow passengers to look at live-flight info, search for shops, explore restaurant options, and find transportation to their next destination.
