Five Great Airports for Business Travelers

Chep

It's a battle between staying awake and ignoring your last coffee's buzz so that you can fall asleep.

 

Business travelers often spend a great deal of time just in airports, and it can be hit or miss when it comes to comfort and productivity potential. 

 

This list of airports, however, is a little bit different in that each one provides a little something special that can make an extended layover for the business traveler that much more enjoyable.

 

San Francisco International: Frequent flights to San Francisco can leave travelers exhausted. However, SFO is a business traveler's dream.  Recently renovated, this airport offers international travelers a spacious layout, plenty of seating, free Wi-Fi along with numerous power outlets, desks and phone charging stations.  It is the perfect hang-out for business travelers that are needing to get caught up, check emails and focus for an hour or six in between flights.

 

Dubai International: DXB brings business travelers a different sort of treat.  Instead of maxing out your layover to do work, this place has all you need to both relax and stay of fit body and mind thanks to the Dubai International Hotel.  The hotel is located within the airport and provides luxurious accommodation along with two gyms and a swimming pool.

 

Changi Airport in Singapore: SIN has incorporated just about any feature a business traveler could desire into their airport design.  One of my favorites is their nap rooms that can be rented out in short blocks (say 6 hours) or even the free snooze lounges with comfortable lay-back chairs and peaceful surrounds.  On top of this, there are fitness rooms, spa rooms, beauty salons, showers and shopping to accommodate almost any need.

 

Munich Airport: MUC offers up your basic array of business traveler services, such as Internet connection points and easy access to onsite hotels with meeting rooms.  However, the Munich Airport, also offers up a few ways to relax in between flights either at their onsite Bavarian brewery or on the minigolf course at the Visitors Park.  Perhaps these are a couple of the reasons it has been voted the best airport in Europe yet again this year.

 

Chek Lap Kok in Hong Kong: HKG provides a unique system for the business traveler to harness.  You can actually check in for a flight at two of the downtown train stations and then proceed to take the Airport Express into the airport.  The terminals contain free Wi-Fi, which is always important for last minute emails and project touch-ups.  For a more peaceful stay, the onsite gardens and lounges are perfect for a quick nap.  The most interesting aspect, however, is the 9-hole golf course, open late, right new terminal two.  If that doesn't suit, you can also find a 4D Extreme Screen or a Playstation Gateway.

  • In order to remember your travels, you must either possess a steel trap of a mind or a nice camera.
