TripAdvisor launches comprehensive airport pages.

tripadEver been in an airport waiting for a flight and opted for the first stale sandwich you could find, fearing it’d be the last you’d see?

Only to discover an amazing seafood bar right next to your gate?

TripAdvisor’s staff must have felt that pain, too.

Something like that, anyway, must have inspired those indefatigable travel archivists to launch dedicated pages highlighting the attractions and amenities in 200 major airports worldwide.

«Over 3.1 billion travelers pass through airports each year, with the average traveler spending 150 minutes of airport ‘dwell time’ between arriving at the terminal to the doors of the plane closing at the gate,» says Adam Medros, TripAdvisor’s senior vice president, global product.

«We want to help them quickly find things to do on the site while they’re waiting to catch a flight, or book an airport hotel when they need a place to stay.»

The travel booking and review website says its airport pages will allow users to rate restaurants, hotels, attractions, duty free stores, boutiques and lounges while also giving them the ability to find the cheapest flights to that airport.

 Changi airport is the first.

Pages for a total of 200 airports are planned, with New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and London Heathrow Airport launching in July.
