News and notes from Hartsfield-Jackson, the world's busiest airport

More lactation pods added at Hartsfield-Jackson

The world’s busiest airport now has lactation pods for nursing mothers at six different locations.

The company that designs the lactation pods, Mamava, opened four of the units at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in 2016, free to use and paid for with advertising. 

Now, Mamava has added two more locations in the Atlanta airport and partnered with advertising partner Zappos.com to add lactation pad dispensers, cleaning wipes, trash cans, “custom soundtracks” and videos for entertainment while mothers are pumping milk or breastfeeding.

The six lactation pods at Hartsfield-Jackson are near gates T7, B5, D34, E Centerpoint, F5 and F arrivals.

Burlington, Vt.-based Mamava has 75 lactation pods in 37 U.S. airports.
