With flight delays and security checkpoints, airport layovers seem longer and more aggravating than ever. Who wants to spend hours sitting on cramped plastic chairs or stumbling around the same duty-free shops? Nobody, and that's why airports around the world are adding amenities to keep travelers occupied, active and relaxed between flights.
Idle passengers at San Francisco International Airport have access to a free yoga studio open 24/7 for practicing soothing and energizing yoga poses. A reflection room is nearby for meditation or just chilling out. And along with more than 50 airports around the world, including LAX, there’s an XpresSpa offering professional body and foot massages. Suffering through a late-night layover? Check into a mini suite at Atlanta International and get access to a daybed, flat-screen TV and alarm clock.
But be careful not to have too much fun — you might miss your flight.
