Lost in an Airport? Bing’s got You Covered

Have you ever been wandering around an airport, completely confused about where you’re going and wondering where you can find just a simple bite of food to eat? Where the heck is the bathroom, and why aren’t there any coffee vendors in sight?! Well, Bing has a solution.

Bing recently launched a brand new series of Airport Maps to help travelers find their way around even the most confusing airport. At the moment, just 42 different airport maps are available only in the United States, but Bing will be expanding their horizons if these things take off.

The best part is that there’s nothing to download or install: simply search by airport name, city or airport code. You can even download a map to you phone.

The full list of current Airport Maps can be found at Bing.com, and each map indicates where you can find a parking garage, ticket counters, terminals and gates, baggage claims, currency exchange, etc. Each map also comes equipped with a directory of airlines, cafes, and restaurants.

There are two ways to use these babies:

1. Go to to Bing Maps, enter the airport name (we used Newark), city, or code, and zoom in using the map

Now you can easily find your way to Newark's Steak Escape

OR

2. Search for your flight status on Bing.com and then click the map link beside the airport to see its map (see image, circled below).

Voila!

We think this will prove to be a handy tool for travelers everywhere, especially in busy airports where you don’t speak the language. In fact, why didn’t you think of this first, Google Maps?
