Amusing Things To Do In An Airport To Kill Time
by Adriana Noton

With the current rigorous security measures that are now being employed at airports, travelers are now finding more time on their hands while waiting to board their flight.
Whether you are traveling with children or flying on your own, it has become necessary to alleviate the boredom of waiting to board the flight. Fortunately, there are a number of amusing things you can do to kill time at an airport while you're waiting for your flight to London.

Have a Meal: Relaxing while having a snack or a meal is a great way to kill time while waiting for a flight. Airports now have a wide range of food establishments with comfortable seating where people can sit, chat, and enjoy good food. Many airlines no longer offer in-flight meals so having a meal at a national food chain is a great way to have a meal that you know you will like. You do not have to worry about receiving bad tasting food from an unfamiliar dining establishment. If you want to know what food establishments are at the airport, you can check the airport's website for more information.

Surf the Internet: Most airports now offer Wi-Fi Internet access. All that you have to do is enable your laptop to connect to the airport's access point. You can often find a comfortable spot to surf in an airport coffee shop, lounge, or an airline club. The signals are strong and can reach distances of around 95 meters or more. You can also often pick up the signal at the entrance of the airport and the signals are not disrupted by windows, walls, and doors. The three main Wi-Fi hotspot providers in airports are Boingo, T-Mobile, and Wayport. You can check your email and chat with friends. You can also post some comments on Twitter or add some posts to your Blog. As well, before you leave for the airport, load your laptop with fun games. You will find that the time will fly when you are focused on a fun video game.

Enjoy Airport Life: If you are on a tight budget, you can enjoy the scenery in the airport. For instance, the airport is a great way to watch people coming and going as well as watching tearful goodbyes and blissful hellos. People from all over the world pass through airports so you can chat with travelers and learn about where they come from and learn about their lives. There are also books stores that sell books and magazines, so you can take the opportunity to read a good book. If there is a long delay, wander the airport and enjoy the sights and sounds.

Spruce up Your Appearance: The airplane is a closed-in area and the bathrooms are very small. Take some time to stop in the airport bathroom to brush your hair, wash your face, do a make-up touch up, and brush your teeth. You will not only look better, but you will feel refreshed.

Because of the new airport regulations, tighter airport security and a reduction in scheduled flights, boarding a flight for commercial air travel takes much more time than it used to. Bad weather, more security checks, and traffic congestion, has resulted in much longer boarding delays. Fortunately, the airport has much to offer travelers which will make the wait much less boring.
