Travel Tidbits: airport nursing pods, gyms and more

Welcome to Here are some travel tidbits for you.

Nursing pods for 4 NY/NJ airports

Paying close attention to legislation that requires large and medium airports to provide lactation areas in every terminal by October 2020, the Port Authority of NY/NJ has upgraded the Mamava lacation pods in its four commercial airports.

The new, post-security nursing facilities are larger versions of the previous pods and include 12 at JFK, nine at Newark Liberty International Airport, six at LaGuardia Airport, and one at New York Stewart International Airport.

More in-airport gyms on the way

ROAM Fitness, which has an in-airport gym at Baltimore/Washington International Airport, has a contract to open a second location this summer at San Francisco International Airport Terminal 2 in collaboration with XpresSpa.

More app-powered gate-delivery meals on the way

At Your Gate, which currently provides app-powered gate delivered meals at five airports – San Diego International Airport, Newark International Airport, LaGuardia Airport, JFK T2 and Minneapolis Int’l Airport – will soon add Portland International Airport as its sixth location.

And Airport Sherpa, which currently offers a similar app-powered gate delivery service for meals at Baltimore/Washington International Airport, has inked a deal with airport restaurateur HMSHost to offer on-demand mobile ordering and food delivery at all the North American airports where HMSHost operates. No word yet on the timetable for the roll-out beyond BWI, only that the plan is to “quickly introduce the technology with strategic airport partners throughout the United States,” says HMSHost.
