Travel Hacks: How to Kill Time at the Airport

Getting to the airport on time is essential, but sometimes things don’t get as planned. Delays, layovers, or even arriving too early at the airport and you will find yourself with extra time to kill while waiting to board. Instead of waiting anxiously and impatiently at the departures board, here are some tips to make the most of your time spent at the airport:

Eat something

You’ll see many people making a line straight for the nearest coffee stop to grab their coffee as soon as they clear security. If you have more time than you had anticipated look for a bar or restaurant where you can sit down, relax and enjoy a healthy and satiating meal. If you are in a foreign country, you can even discover new dishes you haven’t tried before. You’ll discover that the eat-in areas of airport restaurants are less chaotic than waiting around by the gate with other impatient passengers.

Catch up on some work

Of course, this might not be the most exciting way to spend your time at the airport, but this might be the perfect opportunity to catch up on work so you can relax when you arrive at your destination. Try working on something simple and creative that doesn’t involve searching through other documents; for example, you can reply to emails or work on a presentation. That way, you can focus on small tasks that require plenty of time but are easier to concentrate on for a short time.

Watch a movie or your favorite series

With so many portable devices available that offer excellent storage space and decent streaming quality through Wi-Fi it is easy to take some time out to relax while watching a movie while waiting at the airport. It would be great to download some favorites from home, so you don’t have to worry about Internet connectivity.

Upgrade to a lounge

Lounges are not dedicated only to first class travelers. If you’re not a frequent flyer with business lounge access, find out if you can upgrade? If you are experiencing a long delay, you’ll be able to spend some time in comfort, away from the hustle and bustle of the main concourse. You will usually pay a membership fee for access to lounges and you will receive different benefits depending on the frequency of your travels.

Call someone

You can use your time at the airport for a phone call or a video chat with a friend or family member. When you are busy sometimes it can be difficult to reconnect with your loved ones, so why not use this free time catching up with your family and friends.
