This guide is primarily intended to be a resource for airport managers who want their airport
to encourage healthy habits and improve the customer experience. The strategies discussed here are most effective in airports with areas where travelers can choose between different transportation modes, such as taking a train or shuttle, or walking. Motivational signs placed in these areas can help encourage travelers to walk.
This guide was developed as a result of the Walk to Fly Study to encourage walking, instead of riding the Plane Train in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
