ViaDirect guides millions of travelers at Zhuhai Airport, China
23 November 2020
Zhuhai , China

First installation in a Chinese Airport!

After Europe and the US, ViaDirect now enters the Airport industry in Asia. ViaDirect is happy to help millions of travelers finding their way at Zhuhai Airport.

Zhuhai Airport is in Sanzao Town, Jinwan District, 50 km (31 miles) southwest of Zhuhai city center, and 25 km (16 miles) southwest of Macau. Zhuhai Jinwan Airport handled 11,220,703 passengers in 2018.

With airports regaining confidence into welcoming more passengers, Zhuhai Jinwan Airport decided to invest in the future by equipping digital wayfinding kiosks: 3 neat-designed kiosks providing useful information to any passenger of the Airport.

Installed with our great partner Weiyade Information Technology, and all running ViaDirect 3D wayfinding software, users can easily navigate through the 3D map of the airport and find the destination they are looking for.

More than that, with a modern integration of a boarding scanner, travelers can directly scan their own boarding pass and be directed to their flight’s gate. The software is also displaying real-time information such as the flight schedule, weather, and time.


Main Features of the software

ViaDirect's software for this project includes:

  • 3D interactive map of the airport with itineraries to airline check-in desks and boarding gates
  • Flight information and schedule (real-time data)
  • Boarding Pass scanner: visitors can directly scan their boarding pass to get the itinerary of their flight’s gate
  • Alphabetical listing of restaurants, shops, and services with clear location
  • Information and itineraries guiding toward public transportation (for the kiosks located at the arrival)
  • Calculation and display of distance between locations
  • Shortcuts buttons to police, urgence, restroom and information desk
  • QR Code available to receive the map on the smartphone
  • Available in English, traditional (with integrated handwriting keyboard) and simplified Chinese
