The complimentary feature most desired by air travelers at airports is a cinema, according to a 2013 survey by Skyscanner.
Nearly 49 percent of the 10,000 respondents in the survey expressed a preference for watching a movie on a large screen at the airport while waiting.
Very few airports around the world have complimentary movie theaters. Singapore’s Changi Airport has free 24-hour-open cinemas at Terminals 2 and 3.
Sleep pods, such as those recently introduced at the Abu Dhabi airport, were the next popular feature as these offer a low-cost alternative to hotel rooms for relaxation.
An airport library, an outdoor park and a man-made beach were other popular desired features.
