Water Bottle Refill Stations beyond Security Checkpoint Offer Passenger Convenience

Memphis International has added an eco-friendly amenity that makes it easier for passengers to stay hydrated on their flight. Three water bottle refill stations let passengers take some of Memphis’ pure, refreshing, and tasteful Artesian water with them.

The refill stations offer a welcome addition for passengers since they are not allowed to carry liquids through the security checkpoint. Now passengers can carry an empty water bottle thru security and then refill it at one of three locations before their flight. The units are specially designed for this purpose, so there is no need to tilt the bottle and refill from the drinking fountain.

The stations are located by gates A25, B1 and C10. One station alone has helped eliminate waste from more than 6,500 disposable plastic bottles since it was installed.
