These days, it seems nearly impossible to fly without spending a good amount of time at the airport. Whether you’re early to the gate or experiencing a long layover, you may find yourself trying to kill time. Luckily, some airports are adding unique amenities to keep you entertained.

Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport

Minneapolis was the first U.S. city to build a cinema in their airport! The 18-film screening room features a variety of short films & documentaries. It’s open 24/7 and free to all passengers.

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport

Next time you’re traveling through Austin, Texas, you’ll want to take a look at the event calendar for this airport, where there are more than a dozen live concerts held each week.

Miami International Airport

While walking around this airport in Miami Florida you may notice a 69-pound golden retriever wearing a “Pet Me’ uniform. This trained therapy dog & her owner stroll through the terminals twice a week to give passengers directions & free doggie snuggles.

More & more airports around the U.S. are bringing in therapy dogs for weary travelers, particularly in Buffalo, Dallas, Denver & Sandiego.

General Mitchell International Airport

Visitors to Milwaukee Wisconsin can enjoy a quick game of Ping-Pong between flights, thanks to a special event a few summers ago that was so popular, they decided to leave the ping pong table as a permanent fixture.

San Francisco International Airport

The yoga room in San Fransisco’s airport provides a nice, quiet place to relax & calm your nerves. Also be sure to check out the SFO Museum with more than 20 galleries scattered across the terminals.

Wait there’s more!

Airports all around the country are adding new features to not only enliven their visitors but also help them learn a thing or two. In the last few years, more than 20,000 travelers learned to perform CPR thanks to the American Heart Association’s Hands-Only CPR kiosks. You can also learn about friendly farming at Chicago O’Hare’s aeroponic garden!

When planning international check with a Fellowship Travel Sales Agent to see if you qualify for a free stopover in your connecting city. Rather than spend hours at the airport, stop & enjoy the city! We can help you book hotels, day tours & more!

It’s a big world. Get out there!
