The airport in Timisoara, western Romania, is the only one in the country included in the Indoor Google Maps service. More precisely, the airport has an indoor map that anyone can access on the Internet, which helps passengers get away with the information desk’s queue.
The indoor map shows the exact location of the passengers, while also helping them find the departure gate where they need to go.
The airport’s spokesperson Nicoleta Trifan told Digi 24 that the airport provided Google Maps with all the indoor maps and all information about the departure gates’ location, of the passage ways and of the cafes. The indoor map of the airport can be used from any smartphone or from any laptop.
The International Airport in Timisoara has recorded traffic of over 8 million passengers in the first eight months of this year, by 60 percent more than in the same period of last year.
The new Google Maps option was designed particularly to help passengers come through inside airports, sports grounds, supermarkets or bus stations more easily.
The service, now available in Romania as well, is also found in 25 countries, among which Germany, UK, Russia or US.
Google Maps-Indoor currently has over 10,000 locations worldwide.
