Staying connected while traveling is a must these days, but running out of battery can be one of the most frustrating aspects. To help travelers stay charged, airports and airlines are installing electric charging stations in terminals and aircraft seats. In this article, we'll explore the charging stations available at Washington DC Airport and other airports in the US. At Washington DC Airport, passengers can find free charging stations on all esplanades, in many boarding areas and in the terminal, outside the gate of international arrivals.
Power outlets are located next to most of John F's doors, as well as several electrical outlets placed next to the rocking chairs in the atrium. The newly built concession area also has power outlets. Hartsfield—Jackson Atlanta International Airport has a network of free, interactive charging stations installed by Monster Media. These charging stations allow users to charge their devices (and take a quick selfie) and are scattered throughout the airport.
