As the number of air travelers continue to grow, so do the size and complexity of the world’s airports. If you’re like us, you like visiting new airports, checking out the amenities and indulging in some duty free shopping…or a lot of duty free shopping. But if you’re also like us, you’ll get off the plane after a 13-hour flight, sleepy-eyed, disheveled and disoriented with about 30, panic-filled minutes to find the connecting flight at the other end of the airport. So here’s our tip and it’s brilliant in its simplicity…check out the airport before you land, relax and save yourself some time.
Some airlines will post advertisements/directions on the flight prior to landing so keep an eye open for them. Or better yet, check out the airport’s website, print off the map and keep it with your travel documents before you take your trip. Not sure of the website, check out http://www.airlinequality.com/Airports/AirportA-Z.htm. It lists the websites of most airports around the world.
