Memphis, TN – Airport Seating Alliance has completed installing 500 passenger seats with Power and Go seat charging technology at the AMC Passenger Terminal at Dover Air Force Base as part of the airport’s continued terminal upgrades.

All passenger seats in both the secured and non-secured areas of the terminal were replaced with ASA’s Ridgeway Model in 3-, 4- and 5-seat units configured to maximize seating capacity in all areas, says James Hammond, General Manager of ASA. Installation took place this month and was completed in three days with no interruption to passenger service, he noted.

“This terminal is one of the gateways for military air cargo distributed throughout the world and is now receiving renovations for the first time since the 1990s,” Hammond says. “Dignitaries utilizing this terminal for official government business include the President, Vice-President and Secretary of State.”

Also installed as part of the project, 3-seat clusters with a center table were added.  “These particular seating clusters enhance an area’s layout while allowing passengers personal space for comfort.  Back cushions feature an embossment of the Air Mobility Command (AMC) logo.”

ASA’s Power and Go seat charging was added to seating in all areas, allowing travelers easy access to outlets so they can recharge their portable electronic devices while waiting.  Power and Go’s many features include USB Type A, Type C and Combination Type A & C. Custom parallel module wiring keeps individual seating boxes from losing power.

Also beneficial is the fast charging speed by the Power and Go’s 5 Amp USB circuit breaker. It is fully UL Listed (UL962A), has an LED Power Indicator and is tamper-resistant. “The Airport Seating Alliance Power and Go charging module is the only Commercial Grade, fully UL Listed pre-wired lounge seating power delivery system,” notes Hammond. “Power Modules provide an easy means of charging user devices while meeting custom space requirements unique to airports. The Power and Go charging modules can be mounted to most tables or tandem seating models using a custom designed bracket.”

Airport Seating Alliance is a woman-owned small business that manufactures quality public seating for waiting areas at airports and other transportation facilities. Partnerships enable ASA to also supply interior products such as charging stations (or tables) and custom check-in counters.
