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
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
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!
