The Port of Portland unveiled the official “Tweet Your Feet” carpet mats to celebrate being chosen as America’s Best Airport by Travel+Leisure magazine readers.
Tweet Your Feet stations are located throughout the airport inviting passengers to share their PDX carpet feet photo and up to eight word PDX story with the Port of Portland on Twitter (@flypdx #pdxbestairport) or Facebook (portofportland #bestairport). Each week the Port of Portland will choose some stories and photos to retweet and post on their Facebook page. What a fun way to spread the word about being voted America’s Best Airport and to share the love for the famous carpet!
