Power Outlets in Gate Waiting Areas

Midway continues to recognize the needs of today’s digital travelers, and as a result has enhanced the customer experience by adding power-equipped chairs throughout the terminals and Baggage Claim areas.

When travelers arrive at their gate, they will have the opportunity to charge their electronics, relax or get work done all from the comfort and convenience of their power-equipped seat. We have also added additional power-equipped seating in Concourse A near the Battle of Midway interactive exhibit.

All of the gate waiting areas offer seats equipped with power outlets in their gate waiting areas. Be sure to check your seat for availability.
