Whether you are delayed, snowed in or have just ended up with hours between connections, spending time in an airport can be incredibly boring. Our infographic offers 50 different ways to make use of this downtime whilst getting some great life experiences too!

For those who are feeling energetic, Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris has a circular design in Terminal 1, which would make a perfect running track. Singapore’s Changi Airport offers passengers the use of a swimming pool, while Milwaukee’s Mitchell Airport has tables set up for ping-pong enthusiasts to while away a few hours. For those who prefer something a little less strenuous Dallas Fort Worth International Airport has its own yoga studio, and Albuquerque and Raleigh-Durham have meditation rooms, perfect for those of a nervous disposition about flying.

If you are looking for a more sedate way of passing a few hours, why not visit a planetarium? If you are lucky enough to be in Tokyo’s Henada Airport why not drop by the Starry Cafe, a restaurant that also doubles as a planetarium, projecting the night sky and stars overhead while you eat. London’s Heathrow Terminal 5 has its own art gallery featuring work by Troika, Christopher Pearson and El Ultimo Grito.

The pieces have been installed in the Terminal 5 lounges, which will be referred to as Galleries. Work will also be shown from British Airways’ existing art collection, which has been acquired over the last eleven years and includes over 1, 500 pieces. Or why not experience something totally unique if you are passing through Kuala Lumpur Airport? Terminal A has a wide array of duty-free shops and prestige brand boutiques as well as a natural rainforest in the middle of the terminal, exhibiting the Malaysian forests. Our infographic has more brilliant ways to help you pass the time.
