It is certainly not a lot of fun to hear that your flight just got delayed or cancelled. Every tenth traveler in EU has experienced flight disruptions – and those amount to €3 billion in debt that airlines owe to the passengers. However, not all involuntary airport stays are equally horrible. That’s why we collected a list of 5 best airports from around the globe to get stranded it.
The specialists from Skycop – the flight delay compensation company – have carefully selected five airports that have much to offer to even the fussiest of delayed travelers.
- Munich International Airport
While we do not encourage drinking to wash away the delay blues, Munich Internetional Airport is the best airport to grab a responsible pint at. There’s a Bavarian-style beer inn and brewery that’s easy to find – it’s ready quench your thirst 24/7. Not a fan of beer? When why not check out the amazing architectural solutions of the super-modern Terminal 2? You can also get a birds-eye view of the airport operations (perfect selfie background) or even check out historic planes!
- Vancouver International Airport
The nature is breathtaking in Canada, and you won’t miss out on it if your flight gets delayed at the Vancouver International Airport. The building features ground-to-ceiling windows that offer an amazing view of the ocean, mountains and fields. And with four SPAs operating on the premises and a massive aquarium housing 31 000 fish, you’d be forgiven for thinking that you landed at a resort rather than an airport.
- London Heathrow International Airport
Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world – and it also offers a great variety of activities to keep you busy while you wait. Stores from over 50 most well-known brands will delight the fashionistas while an exposition of British sculptors, painters and photographers will be a treat to art lovers. But that’s not all: an upcoming influx of over €40 million in investment is bound to make the place even more exciting!
- Hong Kong International Airport
Hong Kong International Airport is built on an island and serves as a great example of Asian precision. The place runs like clockwork and provides a lot of entertaining activities. IMAX cinema, simulation golf courses, aviation expo – whatever your taste is, Hong Kong International is ready to match it.
- Changi International Airport
Without a doubt, Skycop left the best for last. Chiangi International airport is the most fun place to face a delayed or canceled flight. The airport hub contains 350 stores, a movie theatre, five gardens (one of which includes 1000 live butterflies), a 27-foot waterfall, a roof-top swimming pool, and more! Sounds more like a holiday destination by itself rather than a delay, right?
