New for 2017, Clear Channel Canada has installed charging stations in the Domestic and Transborder departures lounges.
The network of 42 charging stations are to be sold to a single advertiser for a strategic presence in the departures lounges, with 26 units on the Domestic side and 16 in Transborder. Each individual unit has a double-sided panel that is illuminated with LED lighting to make advertiser creative stand out. Below the signage are 4 USB outputs and a designated stand on either side where passengers can place their phones while they charge.
Nearly all passengers travel through the airport with at least one mobile device, with 91% carrying a smartphone and 58% bringing a tablet or laptop, with the majority intending to use their time in the lounge on their devices for work or leisure activities.
