To kick off Mobility Awareness Month, Miami International Airport (MIA) held an event to unveil the installation of 10 new wheelchair charging stations at the airport.

The charging stations are now available at 10 locations throughout the airport – eight post-security and two pre-security.

“One of our highest priorities at MIA is making the joy of air travel even more accessible and convenient for all our customers,” said Lester Sola, MIA Director and CEO. “Thanks to our new charging stations, travelers using wheelchairs now have more freedom and independence to move around MIA without worrying about low batteries.”

Last November, MIA became one of the first 10 U.S. airports to provide sunflower lanyards free of charge to travelers with hidden disabilities. MIA also opened its second multi-sensory room, a calming place for young passengers with developmental disabilities to relax during the travel experience.
