Dayton International Airport has brought back a traveler convenience that had virtually disappeared in recent years–public telephones. Nine telephones are now located throughout the airport, including one in the pre-security/baggage claim area. The phones may be used free of charge, though long distance charges must be paid (calling cards may be purchased at any of the airport’s news and gift shops).
“Nearly everyone carries a cell phone today, of course,” said Director of Aviation Terry Slaybaugh. “But every now and then a cell battery dies, or a phone may be needed for any number of reasons. Dayton International Airport is happy to provide this convenience.” Each phone is accompanied by a video monitor showing phone use instructions and informational messaging from the airport.
Emergency calls are forwarded to the airport police, and the airport information desk is also accessible from the phones.
