10 Awesome Airports To Pass the Time When You Have A Layover

September 21, 2015

While waiting on a time when layovers become a distant memory, we’ve discovered a list of airports that are awesome to pass the time.

10 Awesome Airports To Pass the Time When You Have A Layover

via About Travel:

1.  Changi Airport

Singapore’s commercial airport is such a wondrous place I could actually move in and never leave. There are so many wonderful distractions, including a pool, a butterfly garden, a movie theater and a spa, to name a few. But if you have at least a five-hour layover, the airport offers a free 2.5 hour guided tour of Singapore. All you have to do is register with a passport and boarding pass at the Free Singapore Tours booths at least an hour before any tour starts.  More »

2.  San Francisco International Airport

Travel these days is stressful enough. If you have time to kill at this airport, you have free access to yoga studios in Terminals 2 and 3. The studios have yoga mats available, but are quiet zones, with no cell phones allowed. More »

3.  Amsterdam Schiphol

There’s plenty of things to do in this airport, which boasts world-class shopping and great food. Another way to kill time is to step into the airport’s Holland Casino, where gamblers have access to games including roulette, black jack and slot machines. More »

4.  JFK Airport Terminal 5

I could wax poetic about JetBlue’s flagship terminal at JFK, which features world-class restaurants. But what makes this terminal a great place to kill time is the center of the terminal, just past security, where the airline’s signature Live from T5 program is held. Live brings in artists like Taylor Swift, James Blunt, Robyn, Jason Derulo and Raphael Saadiq, who play free concerts for travelers. More »

5.  Munich Airport

 The aviation geek in me is always looking to find great views of airplanes when hanging out in airports.  Munich Airport has built a 9,000 square-foot viewing terrace on the roof of Terminal 2 with spectacular views of the apron, the handling activities and the runways. Access the terrace by taking the Skywalk, a glass tunnel that rises through the terminal from Level 5. More »

6.  Vancouver International Airport

Sometimes all you want to do is just sit in an airport lounge away from the masses. And if you’re like me, without status to access an airline lounge, Vancouver is an airport with three outlets of the Plaza Premium Lounge. You can get in with an American Express Platinum Card or pay between $30 and $53, depending on how long you want to stay. Once inside, you have access to amenities including hot and cold food, barista service with specialty coffees and teas, VIP rooms to rent, a business centre, free Wi-Fi, magazines, newspapers, televisions, nap rooms, along with washrooms and shower facilities.
