Minneapolis-St. Paul International (MSP) has a new Web site – www.mspairport.com – where travelers can find airport terminal and campus maps, flight information look-up function and more intuitive navigation scheme.
“Our goal was to create a site that is easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and provides the information our customers need and want,” says Patrick Hogan, director of public affairs and marketing for the Metropolitan Airports Commission, the public corporation that owns and operates MSP. “Whether you are planning a trip or picking up a friend or loved one at the airport, the new site provides information specific to your needs, including detailed maps of the terminals and airport campus.”
Melissa Scovronski, public affairs and marketing coordinator for the MAC, says customers have long been asking for a feature that lets visitors find up-to-the minute information about flights going in and out of MSP. From the homepage, visitors can click on “Flights” and then choose their options.
“Flight status information on the Web site comes from the same source as flight data available on monitors within MSP’s terminals, so you can get the same, timely information on your home computer that you can at the airport,” she says.
The link for the airport has remained the same, but MAC has a new address: www.metroairports.org. The sites were separated to allow the airport URL to focus almost entirely on airport users, and let the MAC site focus on the airport authority, such as information about MAC board meetings and commissioners, the commission’s six reliever airports, employment, airport noise issues and business opportunities.
