The main concourse is largely the same now as it would have been in the 1960s, but there is one major difference – the departure boards. In 1996, the terminal’s split-flap Solari boards were replaced with digital screens. At that time, the design of the board still kept a vintage look. In 2019, the boards were replaced again and this time the look was new and modern.
