What do frequent flyers want from airports Cinemas, sleeping pods and libraries?
An international survey has revealed 10 complimentary features that travellers want to see at a dream airport, with a cinema, sleeping pods and a library at the top of the list.
About 49% of more than 10,000 travellers interviewed in 25 countries excluding Thailand by travel search site Skyscanner nominated cinemas like those at Singapore Changi Airport.
Shuteye also scored highly, with 36% of respondents voting for sleeping pods, which Abu Dhabi International Airport unveiled in May. At about 375 baht per hour, they provide an affordable alternative to a hotel room.
Voted in third place by 32% of respondents in the May poll was a library that allows travellers to borrow their holiday reading, showing that the traditional paperback is still a popular choice for travellers despite the rise of e-books.
