Best airports by SleepingInAirports

Airports are becoming more and more crowded and some becoming major hubs for connection flights or waiting during delays. Travelxolic.com would like to share the next article regarding airports around the world by SleepingInAirports.

 Here is the original article:

 For 17 years, travellers at SleepingInAirports have been rating airports not only for their sleep comfort, but the services and amenities they offer during a layover.

When selecting an airport to declare as the “best”, travellers were asked to consider the four C’s: comfort, conveniences, cleanliness and customer service.

Comfort: Armrest-free seating and quiet/rest/relaxation zones. Conveniences: Free WiFi, 24-hour food, showers, pay-in lounges, and activities to do on a layover. Cleanliness: Clean floors, bathrooms and food courts. Customer Service: A smile and friendly attitudes go a long way. We are so thankful for the kind airport workers who help us when we are lost and give us blankets and pillows when we’re stranded.

While no airport is perfect, the airports on this list realize that travellers want more things to do during a layover and they have introduced services and amenities to improve our airport experience such as: free WiFi, movie theatres, tv lounges, mini-golf, bicycle rentals, gardens, aquariums, art exhibits, and showers. Airports may not have been built with sleeping in mind, but nowadays more of them are implementing rest zones and quiet areas to help us relax on our journeys.
