Airport Typeface information

aimeeverah's picture

M school typography project; comparing the typefaces in the top 25 + busiest airports.
(One middle row of 2 letter A's, side by side or even overlapping to show a comparison from all the found airport typefaces)
I have not been able to find what I need, but here is what I have found- Please feel free to fill in the blanks, edit my complete project idea or correct an incorrect typeface for an airport. (They are not in the order of busiest to least here)
And just out of Curiosity, anyone know what Russia's Airport typeface would be?
Thanks in advance for any help on this, I think I officially exhausted google.

Cool project.
I just don't get the "row of As" bit - could you explain?

Shouldn't it be fairly straightfoward just to google images of the signage and go from there? (Or maybe that's what you've done? In which case, cool.) Just trying one: (Singapore – Frutiger)

Copenhagen — from my recollection in 2006, was Frutiger
