New phone charging service takes off at Bristol Airport
By Sarah Wood | 27th August 2021
Bristol Airport has become only the second UK airport to install a new power bank rental service, so passengers can charge their phones before they fly.
Having a fully-charged phone is an essential for travel, so that tickets, Covid-19 test results and vaccine passports are easily accessible.
The new service from Joos means there is no need to crowd around a power point or leave devices in a charging locker. Passengers can charge on the move while shopping, enjoying a drink or even going through security.
To use the service, passengers download an app, scan a QR code and take a power bank for as long as they need it. They can then return it before their flight or even take it home with them.
Joos also includes advanced safety measures which minimise the risk of viral transmission. Power banks are made of medical-grade antimicrobial plastic and quarantine themselves between uses, until any Covid-19 viral agents will have broken down.
Andrew Morris, retail manager at Bristol Airport, said: "We are delighted to work with Joos to provide a mobile and flexible solution to charge electric items for our customers. We have used phone charging units previously, but nothing like this system which allows customers freedom whilst at the airport."
