MISC | Poll: Your Ideal Airport Facilities

The trend nowadays for airports is that they serve more than just passengers boarding, disembarking, or transferring between flights. Nowadays, airports have also become popular tourist attractions of their own, with shops, restaurants, and facilities located outside secured areas. A great example would be at the new International Terminal of Tokyo's Haneda Airport where not only you can dine and shop, but you can also sample food items and buy souvenirs -- some of which are sold exclusively at the airport -- that you would enjoy. Other examples include Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, and San Francisco.

I then ask you: if you were to create or manage an airport, what facilities or amenities would you like to construct or include to make passenger travel more comfortable and to attract even more visitors to the airport?

As always, your replies are subject to SSC rules, so think before posting. And as a note, what I'm referring to here as features would be amenities that would be unique to your airport, not the standard ones like foreign exchange counters, fast food chains, and the like.

A decent hotel is very important, but also comfortable seats in waiting areas! So many have the thin, hard, padded chairs! If your flight is delayed by 3 hours you need somewhere nice to sit.

Do you mean a museum or a live stage where performers can actually perform live?

Could be both, depending on the size of airport. It can also include workshop, where passengers can create some certain things.

Interesting. Will it have bunk beds too for rent as well in case groups travel from one place to another?

All of the above. The more variety, the better.

Amenities will definitely help ease the boredom with long transit times. Especially amenities geared towards children who get cranky quite easily. Video game arcade, perhaps? Or a daycare complete with toys and nannies?

How about mini-karaoke bars (provided they are in sound-proof rooms)?

I'd love to see karaoke in Philippine, Korean, and Japanese airports, given its popularity. Plus daycare? Hmmm it might be nice, but I wonder how that'll work if a kid's parents are away for some time. As for a video game arcade, I'd model the one in SIN where it has even an XBox Lounge.
