Affordable Travel Guide to Airports

Taking Off or Arriving; Airports are Your Temporary Grounds

Airports

The key element to this department of Affordable Travel is your ability to study and learn the airports — major and minor — hubs, secondary (also known as alternative), and short take-off and landing )STOL) strips and terminals. Our complete database of airports will allow you to study the airport terminal where your flightswill be departing from, or arriving at, our waiting around in! You can get to know the terminal’s amenities, parking, shops, kiosks, lounges and layout before you leave home.

As well as the airport listings you will find here, we will also have articles of interest that will keep you “in the circuit” about topics like:

  • Airport Architecture. Who are the great airport building designers and what makes a great airport work due to architectural forethought?
  • Award-winning Airports. When the industry or the passengers vote for the best airlines, who comes out on top and why?
  • Multi-terminal Airports. Does Dallas-Forth Wroth drive you dizzy? Or Toronto’s too many terminals make you tense? Does Heathrow make you want to heave? We’ll guide you through the congestion and confusion at great big airports.
  • Layovers. Its up to you; a long layover can be time well spent or a pain in the neck. We’ll give you ideas for using your layover in an airport to your best advantage.
  • The Best of Airport Food. Yes, you read that right: “best”. Some airports have great dining right there on site, perhaps right in the terminal or at the adjacent hotel. We’ll help you find yummy, healthy ways to eat in an airport.
  • Secondary or Alternative Airports. They often make for cheaper flight costs, and they may be in a slightly less convenient location (or more convenient; it depends!), but secondary airports that service major cities can be the better way to fly.

Combined with out up-to-date listings of world airports, we think you will find excellent tools for reference airports and all they do or do not offer. If you know before you go, you’re half way there! As new airports and airport additions are built and as old ones close or are relocated, or even just renamed, you will find those updates right here.
