Pittsburgh International is the latest airport to offer traveling moms access to a clean, comfortable and dedicated space to breastfeed, use a breast pump and care for young children.
Nursing lounge at PIT Airport
The lounge is located on Concourse C, across from Kidsport, by one of the airport’s two Andy Warhol exhibits.
Other airports with dedicated spaces for nursing moms include Burlington International, JFK’s JetBlue terminal, Newark Airport’s Terminal B, LaGuardia Terminal B (Concourse A), and General Mitchell International in Milwaukee, which all have stand-alone Mamava lactation stations.
Mamava stand-alone lactation pod at JFK Airport – JetBlue Terminal
Nursing moms flying to or from JFK International Airport on JetBlue get a welcome new amenity on Wednesday with the unveiling of a Mamava lactation suite in T5.
The nursing “pods” are already in use at Vermont’s Burlington International Airport and Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport and there’s a growing list of airports that are doing their part to be truly “breastfeeding friendly.”
JetBlue’s nursing station is being installed at JFK T5 just in time for Mother’s Day and right now is scheduled to stay there for just six months, but the airline is hoping to make it permanent.
Mother’s Day is being celebrated at other airports as well.
And through May 10, passengers traveling through LaGuardia Airport’s Terminal B and Philadelphia International Airport can take advantage of a sparkly Free Gift with Purchase offer.
Spend $100 in one or more shops and (while supplies last…) you can redeem the receipts for a multi-strand crystal and pearl bracelet. There’s also a Twitter contest to give away five of those bracelets (valued at $45) at each airport.
And if you happen to be passing through Frankfurt International Airport on Mother’s Day, look for Elvis.
In addition to performances by a champion Elvis impersonator, there will be a rockabilly band, an acoustic trio singing Elvis songs and a exhibit of photos and souvenirs related to Elvis’s stint as a soldier.
There will also be a vintage car show in front of Terminal 1, contests and – for anyone who shows ups wearing an Elvis costume or a 1950s outfit, free entry to the airports’ observation deck, known as the Visitors’ Terrace.
