    Abstract

    Increased air travel has made the provision of the optimal amount of information to travelers a necessity. Flight information is shown on electronic or mechanical display boards, but finding the required information can take some time depending on the display layout and content. This paper investigates the information configuration for quick access of flight information. Seven potential grouping methods were tested. Search time depends on the layout of information (p < 0.001). Search was fastest when the information was arranged in the order of airline logo, airline name and arrival or departure time.
