Bengaluru: The Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru has garnered a whole lot of applause online for having a diaper-changing station in the men’s washroom.

Ali Samhaan, a passenger from Maldives, spotted the station at the Bengaluru airport and tweeted about it, much to the elation of the internet.

“Saw this in Bangalore International airport men’s room,” Ali Samhaan tweeted with a thumbs-up emoticon. See his tweet:


Ali Samhaan’s post, meanwhile, has generated a debate on gender stereotypes on Twitter. “So what? Is that a task only for women? FYI men also do change baby’s diapers,” a user wrote in the comments section but Ali clarified that his tweet was indeed an “appreciation post.” Several others praised the airport for introducing the facility.

Sample the comments on Ali Samhaan’s post:

Meanwhile, airport officials said that the diaper-changing station was introduced several years ago and many people use the facility daily.

The diaper-changing station was introduced several years ago.

In a statement, Bengaluru airport authorities said, “We’ve received big thumbs-up for the diaper-changing stations at both male and female restrooms at the Bengaluru airport. In a world where mums and dads share the responsibility of raising children, we believe that this is a must-have.”

Superb, right?
