Dublin Airport has just unveiled new feeding rooms, dedicated especially to mothers travelling with babies and young children.
The news was announced in a statement on the airport’s official website, with Managing Director Vincent Harrison describing the move as a positive response to customer feedback.
The rooms – which will be located at both Terminal 1 (by the food and beverage area), and Terminal 2 (beside the retail area) – can be accessed by travellers once they have cleared security.
Decorated with sweet woodland wall paintings, the rooms are equipped with a highchair, a microwave and bottle warmer, and comfortable vinyl seating. Travelling companions will also be accommodated outside of the room.
“The prime locations for the baby feeding rooms means families and groups travelling together will not be separated,” explained Mr Harrison.
“A seating area is available just outside both rooms, to enable travelling companions to comfortably wait nearby.”
He added that the rooms were part of a plan to give ‘additional comfort and privacy to parents travelling with babies’.
“We are passionate about improving our customers’ experience further, so once the need for dedicated baby feeding rooms was identified, we began the process to make it happen,” he explained.
What are your thoughts, mums? Will the new addition make life easier for you when you are travelling? Should these rooms be introduced in other airports?
