The airport of Barcelona el Prat behaves like a silent airport. This is because it has reduced the amount of information messages to the public broadcast by public address system. In this way, it contributes to make more pleasant and silent the stay of both the travelers and their companions, as well as of the own employees of the airport.
The deletion of these messages applies only to the messages of boarding and last call of the automatic paging, which were heard in the commercial area Sky Center of the T1 and in the common area before the modules of boarding of the T2, except the Situations of contingency. The rest of the messages will continue to be broadcast without any changes. Likewise, local public address messages will continue to be broadcast in the area near the boarding gate.
As a reinforcement of this measure, new flight information monitors have been incorporated into the catering areas, and these include a notice about going to the boarding gate with sufficient time indicated by the airline itself.
