Sky Harbor installs filling stations for thirsty fliers

PHOENIX -- We've all been there before: We get past airport security and are dying for a drink, but we don't want to pay for another bottle of water.

That's no longer an issue at Phoenix Sky Harbor. The airport said Wednesday that it has installed free water bottle refilling stations near a majority of its concourse entrances.

"These water bottle filling stations are already very popular with our customers," Deputy Aviation Director for Facilities and Services Becky Gawin said in a press release. "Not only do they offer passengers an added convenience, they are a sustainable feature, reducing the use of disposable plastic bottles."

In total, 13 stations are available across the airport's three terminals. There are seven in Terminal 4, which handles about 80 percent of the airport's traffic, four in Terminal 3 and two in Terminal 2.

The refilling stations are attached to water fountains and are designed to fit bottles.

The airport said thousands of passengers use the stations per day.
