Creating Airport Environments that are Healthy, Beautiful, Safe, and Fun

When creating interior aesthetics for large publicly shared airport spaces for persons from different cultures, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, with varied health-related requirements, who are traveling for a variety of different reasons, we are challenged to create a harmonious interior experience.  

The FAA reports that an estimated 2,900,000 passengers fly every day in and out of US airports. While this is a staggering number, COVID has impacted this number in various ways. Passengers, in addition to adjusting to post 9-11 increased safety regulations, also now are dealing with pandemic factors such as feeling an increased loss of control, heightened stress, grief, a perceived decline in the air travel customer experience and fear of the unknown.

As airport designers we have a duty to step up and address these concerns directly when creating new or renovating existing airport interiors. This presents us with a tremendous challenge and opportunity to provide a healthy, beautiful, safe, and fun airport experience for all passengers.
