Greetings from … the airport bathroom

Actually, greetings from Boston and the conference of Airports Council International World/North America.

I spent the day roaming the exhibit hall in search of new services and amenities that might make a difference for folks stuck at the airport.

The good news: there are some intriguing new products and services coming to an airport near you.

The bad news: it may take a while for some of the best new ideas to actually get installed at an airport near you.

Let’s hope these two items (from two different companies) spread like…germs.

The Hygolet: automatic sanitary plastic seat covers. Brilliant.

(Candy-filled toilet for display only …)

Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer – super fast, super sanitary, (sort of loud) no-touch hand-dryer.

I’ve seen both of these products in a few airports (and hotels and restaurants) and the reps for each company promised to send me a full list of airport clients soon. In the meantime, if you’ve spotted these at your airport, let me know.

More from the exhibit hall tomorrow…

  1. I’ve seen those toilets before, but I’m trying to remember where. I think it was O’Hare. I thought it was really weird.

    The Dyson Airblade I used at the Providence Place Mall and I think it’s amazing. I’ve never liked hand dryers, but this one actually works. I don’t think it’s as loud as those Xcelerator ones, or whatever they’re called. I hope to see them in more places.
