Refreshing Travel: Civiq and Adelaide Airport’s Sustainable Drinking Water Partnership

A Thirsty Concern at Adelaide Airport

Adelaide Airport, always attentive to travellers’ needs, discovered a concern through a 2016 survey. They learned travellers felt there was a lack of accessible drinking water amenities. The survey highlighted a missing piece in the travel puzzle: no designated area to refill water bottles before catching a flight.

Sustainable Sipping Solutions by the Authorised Distributor of Elkay Products

Enter Civiq, the sustainability-minded innovators and the Authorised distributors of Elkay in Australia. Adelaide Airport approached Civiq for a durable, high-use solution that seamlessly integrates with the modern terminal architecture. Civiq offered various solutions, presenting Elkay’s SwirlFlo Bi-level Fountain with an Integral EZH2O Bottle Filling Station as the prime choice. It wasn’t just about quenching thirst but doing so with style and efficiency.
