Best Airport in North America Elevating Traveler Health and Convenience with World’s Only Self-Sanitizing Changing Tables
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis International Airport (IND) has announced it will install 50 Pluie® diaper changing tables in the men’s, women’s, and family restrooms throughout the airport to increase cleanliness, comfort, and convenience for families and young travelers.
Pluie is the world’s first and only self-sanitizing diaper changing table for public restrooms, powered by a patented UV-C light system known to kill 99.9% of germs including influenza, E. coli, and coronavirus. The UV-C light system activates when the table is closed, sanitizing the changing surface in just 60 seconds after each use.

“Installing Pluie’s self-sanitizing changing tables throughout the Indianapolis International Airport demonstrates our commitment to the health, safety, and comfort of all of our travelers,” said Maria Wiley, ADA coordinator and sr. director of audit, risk management and procurement for the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “And it’s another example of our world-class customer service.”
This partnership will make the Indianapolis airport the largest single footprint public facility in the U.S. to be outfitted with Pluie changing tables. Tables are currently installed in the airport’s Nursing Mothers Lounges located in both concourses post-security as well as the pre-security Nursing Mothers Room near the ticketing area. An additional 43 Pluie changing tables are planned for the men’s, women’s, and family restrooms throughout the airport in the concourses, ticketing, Civic Plaza, Baggage Claim, Customs, and the Ground Transportation Center.
This announcement comes just in time for the influx of families traveling with children that IND anticipates for spring break.
