A new portion of PREMARK® speed limit signs have successfully been applied at Russia’s largest airport
As hosts of the FIFA World Cup 2018, Russia is getting ready to welcome thousands of tourists and football fans. Many of them will travel through the large Sheremetyevo International Airport (SVO) in Moscow as it is one of the main gateways to Russia. The ones who drive through the entrance area of Terminals E and F will be met by newly applied PREMARK® speed limit signs warning them to slow down.
At Sheremetyevo, they have already had great experience with the durable PREMARK® signs. In the autumn, the same type of speed limit signs was placed outside Terminal D. The performance of PREMARK® products was checked and approved by the strong quality control service of the airport operator, and considering the heavy traffic and cold Russian winter, the results have been highly successful. With that in mind, we expect that more signs will soon appear at other airport premises and terminals.
Sheremetyevo International Airport is the largest in Russia and one of the biggest airports in Europe. It has routes to more than 200 destinations and in 2017, it set a historic record for passenger traffic, serving over 40 million passengers. The airport has received several international awards for their service quality and the airport personnel are also doing what they can to cater for their football-loving guests’ need in connection with the World Cup. For example, there will be special fun-zones broadcasting the matches in one of the terminals, which was built during the preparation for the tournament.
