New look for airport website




A redesigned website for LF Wade International Airport has gone live.

In a statement, Skyport described the new site as “clean, simple, visually appealing and easy to use” with functionality and visual appeal as a primary focus.

A key feature is a flight search box, which is located on the homepage. When users go to the site to look for flight information, they have the option to type in the flight number, city or airline and are immediately directed to the relevant page. However, the flight information appears in a three-hour window, so not all the day's flights are searchable at the same time.

The website has been designed and developed by Sebastion Matcham, of Subtropik. Mr Matcham is a Bermudian. He specialises in web design and development without outsourcing overseas.

Mikaela Pearman, marketing and communications officer, at Skyport, said: “It was important for us to work with a Bermudian team to design and develop the website.

“We found Subtropik to be the best choice for our needs and are thrilled with the final product — an easy-to-use, beautiful website that will meet the needs of the travelling public. It was equally important to work with the best Bermudian photographers to convey the visual aspects of the site. We hope the public finds the site easy to navigate, stunning and most importantly, informational.”

Mr Matcham said: “Being a relatively new contender in the local design and web development industry, the chance to take on a high-profile project like this was super exciting.

“An airport is something which, in its every aspect, must be well-designed — it needs to operate smoothly, efficiently and securely and must be easy to navigate. It should also effectively communicate aesthetic aspects unique to the destination or specific project. Those are all the primary considerations that underpin every web project I undertake, so it felt like a natural fit.”

Mr Matcham added: “I'm grateful for the opportunity to produce this website and I thank Skyport for making the decision to hire a Bermudian entrepreneur for this project.”

Skyport hired local photographers Nhuri Bashir, John Singleton, Kyle James and Alexander Masters, to capture images that represent Bermuda and the airport. The images are featured throughout the website.

Users of the website will also find passenger and airline information, and material about Skyport, which is responsible for the airport's operations, maintenance and commercial functions. In addition, the website features updates on the airport redevelopment project and a media section with Skyport news and episodes from its bimonthly video series, Taking Off.
