5 Tips for Killing Time at the Airport

We have all been in the situation where we are stuck in an airport with a lot more time to spare than anticipated. Delayed or cancelled flights and missed connections can be stressful, annoying, and downright boring!

Even if you are not in a glamorous airport with a butterfly garden (Singapore’s Changi International), 150 square foot yoga studio (San Francisco International), or delicious German beer garden (Munich International) – there’s plenty to do to pass the time.

Here are 5 tips to make time move faster while you wait:

Spoil Yourself

You can buy your way into most lounges for £50-£100. Get in touch to buy ahead and escape to an oasis while you wait. Most airports also have day spa and massage services where you can get pampered with facials, mani-pedis, back or foot massages at your leisure.

Day-Trip to the City

If you have a longer layover between flights, it might be worth it to take advantage of rapid transit and head into the city to do some sight-seeing and enjoy a great meal.  The only caveat is to make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get back to the airport and go through security again.

Utilise the WiFi

Airports generally have free WiFi for at least 30-60 minutes without surcharges, so take advantage of it to get some work done, watch a movie, or dig deep into the group chat and forget about your surroundings for a while.

Exercise

The easiest way to accomplish this is to simply take a walk.  Make it your goal to do the whole terminal end to end, or hit a new step record as your browse the shops and restaurants.  Some airports have exercise facilities free of charge that you can drop-in and break a sweat at as well.

People Watch

Some of the best free entertainment is available to you at any given moment at the airport.   People from all walks of life gather in the pursuit of travel for a brief moment, so take it all in and you never know what you might see and hear.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Richard is very responsive. For more than two years he has been arranging my flights within Europe.

At this stage, I must mention that the work I am tasking him with is very difficult. Often I notify Richard briefly before I need a flight or a re-arrangement. My schedule is a mix of long term and short term arrangements, which sometimes are cancelled or postponed. Richard manages to get me on feasible flights and I always count on him. He is very reliable and I see him as a problem solver.

Even when the pressure is on, Richard remains an accountable and reliable solution provider. He always goes by the books and doesn’t take short-cuts. I like working with Richard, who hasn’t dropped the ball, no matter which problem I tasked him with.

He got me on time to Bilbao last week, although EW was messing around with my extra payment for the luggage, until the gate was closed.

Another time he got me back to Düsseldorf from Stockholm, after a couple of rearrangements due to a short term cancelling of a scheduled appointment.

Richard seems to use the whole runaway of tools and processes in order to get the job done. I am a happy client.
