As great as air flight is, it does come with a series of issues, and we’re not talking about waiting to check in your luggage and such, we’re referring more to the problem of flight delays and the time that you spend in an airport waiting for connections. And if there is no other choice but to wait in the airport here’s a list of five ways to kill some time at the airport.
Hit the book shop
Most experienced air travelers will pack a book or two for their trip, some flights can last quite a few hours and there is only so much time you can kill by watching a movie or two, some see it as a great opportunity to catch up on their reading.
Whether you like the actual feel of a book, or you want to avoid the volume and physical presence of one and choose to go for a digital one, reading something will most likely broaden your mind and maybe even your vocabulary.
Start a holiday journal
If writing is your thing and you have about twenty minutes or so, you can start a holiday journal – maybe you already have a blog site – and update your friends throughout the trip. You may also want to go more old school and actually have an actual journal in which you can write in.
Catch up on some sleep
Might sound like not a great idea, but depending on how long you’ve been awake and traveling, and also on your stay till your next flight, you may want to track down a more quiet section of the airport or pay for access to an airport lounge and have yourself a nap. No amount of coffee can replace a nice nap.
Catch up on some minor tasks
Not talking about working in the airport, you are on your holiday after all, but most airports have Wi-Fi now and you can easily spend some time reading through older e-mails, do some shopping, pay some bills, that sort of stuff.
Rent a car
If you’re talking about a long delay, more than just a couple of hours, then you can consider employing a transfer to the nearby city and take in a site or two, or simply relax a bit.
There are obviously other things you can do to kill some time while in the airport, it depends on the amount of time that you have.

Going on a Porto city trip will make for a great holiday, make no mistake about it, but after you book a flight and some great accommodations you should spend a bit more time prepping for your trip by booking our private Lisbon Airport transfers to Porto city or to Porto Airport.
Why would you need such services you ask? Well the fact of the matter is that you need them in order to avoid taking a taxi or public transportation because of the reasons that we’ll talk about right now.
Taxis are a good choice but only if you’re not concerned with your time nor with your travel budget. This is a very busy airport so you may not find an available taxi once you get there – this is where the time factor is involved – and even once you get a taxi, their fares vary so much that you’ll not be able to take this cost into consideration while making your travel budget – rest assured it can punch a massive hole in it.
With our private Lisbon Airport transfers to Porto city on the other hand, not only will you not have to wait, but you’ll also be aware of the fixed price, before you make the actual booking. This only makes your most important transportation needs once you get there so much easier to take into account from a financial standpoint. This may not seem like much but considering the current economic climate, every cost that you can foresee and take into account will help with better planning your limited funds.
The public transportation option will surely be more expensive especially if you are a group of more then 6 persons, and it also implies much more of a hassle. Not only will you have to be rather keenly aware of the Portuguese public transportation system, but knowing a bit of the language won’t hurt either. Also keep in mind that you’ll be traveling with your luggage all this time, not a great proposition in any public transportation system.
Employing some private Lisbon Airport transfer to Porto city will mean that our professionals drivers with years of experience by the way – will be waiting for you at the airport to not only guide you to the transfer vehicle, but also help you with your luggage.
