No sleeping in Stansted airport

No sleeping in Stansted airport If you were hoping to save on a hotel and spend the night in the comfort and luxury of London Stansted Airport’s floor, you might have to rethink your plans. The airport is cracking down on its overnight guests, periodically closing its departures area to travelers between midnight and 2 AM. Airport officials told the Telegraph that the reason for the closure is due to “construction work as part of our £600 million airport transformation programme, and to allow cleaning and other preparations for the next day’s flight operations.” Due to these projects, passengers, unfortunately, “can no longer sleep on the floor overnight, so should not arrive sooner than their scheduled check-in time.”…

Airports without long security lines

Airports without long security lines A good flying experience begins before you ever board the plane. Getting through security and boarding your flight is frequently the most stressful part of flying, with increased competition between airlines at major airports attracting more passengers to already crowded terminals. But for those willing to think outside the box there is a solution. Often overlooked are the smaller international and regional airports nearby, many of which are located within an easy drive of the closest major metropolitan areas. While these airports may not boast a craft brewery or a suburban mall’s worth of shopping options onsite, you’ll typically breeze right through security and be on the plane without having to train it across…

Heinz-Peter Meidinger, head of a German teachers’ association told the New York Times, “Before the start and after the…
