Airports marking Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12, and some airports around the country are doing their part to make moms happy.


“We are looking forward to the smiles – and a few tears – we experience each
year when our JAX Volunteer Ambassadors give out over 1,000 flowers at our
Mother’s Day Carnation Presentation,” said Bryan Long, Customer Service Manager for Florida’s Jacksonville International Airport.

At Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway International Airports moms will receive a complimentary flower seed pack at participating concessionaires. Look for the signs Friday, May 10 through Sunday, May 12.


And at Miami International Airport, they will celebrating Mother’s Day from Friday, May 10 through Sunday, May 12 with a wide variety of fun free events, including a craft table for making Mother’s Day cards, foil-wrapped chocolate roses for moms, a ‘pick a pearl’ event with real pears in oysters, photo ops and more.
