The boarding areas at Haneda Airport's Terminal 2 are now color-coded as of December 13. The visual information, in the form of four distinctive colors, is intended to make the terminal more convenient for travelers.

The terminal's four security screening areas are now color-coded as follows: Area A, blue; Area B, orange; Area C, green; Area D, red. When travelers take mass transit to the terminal, the first boarding information they see upon arrival is the conventional text, symbols and numbers, but now the shortest routes to the boarding gates are also color-coded. Travelers can pass through security and reach their boarding gate smoothly by following the visual cues.

A Haneda Airport spokesperson said, "Responding to complaints on the difficulty of finding one's way through the huge airport, we made information displays more visual to make the terminal very easy to understand for people who don't pass through very often, seniors and visitors from overseas."

The same day the color-coding was introduced, the terminal also added electronic displays to baggage claim area carousels indicating the scheduled time each flight's baggage will arrive. The spokesperson said this is intended to make it easier for travelers to coordinate their train and bus schedules as well as to help relieve the stress of retrieving one's baggage.
