Entro began working with Dialog in 2007, when they were looking at expansion plans and master planning on the new terminal. As the project progressed, we identified areas that needed to be modified such as the renumbering of gates and the signage for the Compact Transit System. A key objective that Entro had was to create a truly seamless system for passengers, from the roads leading to the airport to their final boarding time.
