New AviaVox announcement system provides information in 16 lan-guages
A new computer voice informs passengers at Frankfurt Hahn Airport about the late arrival of aircraft or items left lying somewhere. The Dutch company AviaVox is positioning itself with its product in a German-speaking country for the first time. No other airport in Germany has the announcement system yet.
Announcements at the Frankfurt Hahn airport terminal have been made automatically by a computer since March. The new system features special grammar software and a voice database in various tone qualities. All the different flight destinations can now be announced in their native language. So a flight to Marrakech, for example, will be announced in French and Arabic in future.
Airport director Jörg Schumacher is pleased about the new and diverse voice quality at the terminal: “The acoustic clarity, clear pronunciation and variable use of the new system satisfies everyone. It is a new convenience for our passengers.”
Terminal manager Petrus Dikken had made the announcements himself in the last 15 years. It was also he who brought the new system to the airport. “Many passengers did not always understand our announcements which is why we wanted to improve in that area. We have succeeded in doing that with the new system“.
Representatives of AviaVox and Frankfurt Hahn airport officially put the new system into operation on 1 March. With its first positioning at a German airport, the Dutch company is hoping other German locations will follow. The Frankfurt Hahn airport is an important reference for AviaVox.
