Goodbye Payphones, Hello Mobile Charging Stations at BWI Airport
June 25, 2014 at 10:30 AM
The creative and clever award has to go to the officials over at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, as they’ve taken something useless and turned it into something useful. We all know that payphones have now become part of history, but that does leave banks of telephones that need to be turned into something else.
That’s where the airport comes into things, as they’ve taken the pay phone spaces and turned them into charging stations for all your mobile devices. All in all three pay phone spots have been transformed at the airport, and that means less need to crouch on the floor trying to find an outlet over here or over there.
In total there’s 184 new outlets from which to choose along with some USB ports, and they’re all doing their thing over in Concourse D of the airport. That’s where carriers like Delta, United, JetBlue, Air Canada, and US Airways do their thing. We guess if you’re flying with another airline you’ll need to ensure things are charged and ready to go before arriving at the airport—ha.
