Here are 5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Airport Layover

Do you often feel at a loss during your layovers? With technology fast becoming a daily staple diet, most of us are still able to pass a sane number of hours at the airport without zoning out. Then again, if staring at your phone, tablet or laptop is not what you’re interested in, there are definitely many other ways to occupy your time depending on the length of your layover. Just take a look at some of our suggestions below to get inspired:


 If you don’t exactly mind being stared at (and yes, there will be some people looking your way every once in a while), you can always bring along your yoga mat for a few rounds of refreshing calisthenics or yoga postures. Certain airports may even have a gym, but this is something you’ll have to check up on. If the airport doesn’t have a gym, the least you’ll have to confirm is a place to shower after your exercise.

Get Out of the Airport

 It’s not every day you get to explore a new layover city, so why not make the most of it? If your layover is sufficiently long (6 hours or more), you can make your way out of the airport and back with enough time to catch your next flight. Go take in some new sights, eat the local food and even discover something new. Just remember to get back in time because you really wouldn’t want to waste your time and money on getting another seat when your plane takes off without you.

Get a Game Going

 There’s something to be said about getting a good game going with friends (or even airport strangers). Not only will you get to pass the time doing something productive, but you can also bond and get to know one another better. You wouldn’t have to bring along a bulky board game like that just isn’t convenient, but you can bring along light versions of certain games to try out.

Chat with a Stranger

This might cause some jitters to form in the back of some of our stomachs, but it really is one of the most inexpensive ways to pass the time during our layovers. If you’re new to this and feeling pretty nervous (which is normal), you can start by slowly observing the people around you to get a sense of who might be open to talking. Once you feel ready to approach your target, take a deep breath and put on your biggest most welcoming smile for them.

Work Remotely

Instead of rushing to read and answer all your emails during work, you can try to see if it’s possible to handle that during your layovers. If you’re going to have some spare time before your next flight, it’s a great time to catch up on anything you’ve missed or need to follow up on. If you want to get comfy, you can always look out for a cafe that’s relatively quiet for you to handle your work.
