New airport amenity: “At your service” carts

Paradies kiosk

If you travel through John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, you may have already seen the smaller, pushcart version of this mobile ‘At Your Service’ cart from Paradies, the company that operates shops at more than 70 airports and hotels in the US and Canada.

The company is, literally, getting ready to roll these carts out – and into – hold areas at airports.

Stocked with snacks, drinks, magazines, neck pillows, earbuds and other best-selling items from the shops, the carts bring last-minute and nice-to-have necessities to “gate huggers” who might not take the time to wander into shops.

The first full-blown “At Your Service” cart will appear at Florida’s Palm Beach International Airport this week and, soon, in an airport near you.
