BWI turns old pay phones into charging stations

BALTIMORE - The Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport converted three banks of old pay phones into new charging stations just in time for the busy summer travel season.

The airport said the new charging stations provide 184 new outlets and USB ports for passengers to charge their cell phones, laptops, tablets, and other personal electronics.

"These charging stations are an important amenity that will allow our travelers to power-up and stay connected with work, family, or friends," said Paul J. Wiedefeld, Chief Executive Officer of BWI Marshall.  "Our customers will find it more convenient than ever to charge their electronic devices."

The charging stations which are located on Concourse D, are part of a ongoing effort by BWI to add charging capacity for travelers.  Additional charging stations are expected to be placed throughout the terminal later this year, the airport said.

BWI Marshall was ranked among the Top 10 "techiest" airports in the US by PCWorld Magazine in 2010.
