No More White Paging Phones at Sky Harbor

It's pretty rare when Arizona leads the pack. But Phoenix's own Sky Harbor International is replacing the white paging phones with Paging Assistance Locations, or PALs.

Pages will still be announced as always, but now they will also be displayed on monitors throughout the airport. The traveler will get their messages in a PAL, which has a touch screen, Braille keyboard, and telephone headset or handset. There will be accomodations for people with limited arm mobility, and instructions on how to use the system will be in English, Spanish and German.

    "Phoenix has led the way in making sure people are well-served, no matter what their abilities are," Vice Mayor Peggy Bilstein said. "We also serve a population that is aging, and it will make it easier for them as well."

    Yeah, pretty weird that. I find myself getting older and older.
    One of the hazards of being alive.
