Tips / Travel

The Federal Aviation Administration recently estimated air travel will double over the next 20 years. While planes get people around more efficiently, airport layovers are here to stay. Thankfully, airports can quickly transform into a personal playground if you add a few surprising elements to the mix.

 

1. Experience club luxury. If you are stuck at the airport for a few hours, purchase a day pass at the front desk of an airline club. They offer comfortable seating, large-screen televisions, drinks, snacks,and an oasis from the dingy bustle of the main terminal. Many passes cost about $40-50, depending on the airline.

 

2. Indulge in a treat. Most people skip right to the fast food line and pick a quick meal while they wait for their connecting flight. However, airports have bulked up their fine dining options in recent years. Tapas, craft beers, fine wines and cheeses are just a few ways you can upgrade your time.

 

3. Bring your yoga mat. Scan the terminal for an empty gate with no departing flights and spread out that mat. You can either stretch cramped muscles or lie down for a refreshing nap.

 

4. Take the train into town. If you have an entire day to wait around and you’re in an airport with convenient transportation, like San Francisco, get out and see something. If you have at least five or six hours, you can fit in a great meal and a little shopping.

 

5. Stroll the duty-free shops and take advantage of samples. Many cosmetic and perfume areas offer free spritzes and trial sizes. These shops are also a fantastic way to get some holiday shopping done while avoiding taxes in many countries.
