If you could create your dream airport what would it include? According to 10,000 international travellers, the most coveted feature would be a movie theater.
In a Skyscanner survey released this week, the most popular airport facility for wiling away tedious layovers and wait times for nearly half (49%) of respondents, was a cinema.
If travellers could build their own airport, other facilities they'd add include sleep pods (36%t), a library (32%), park (31%), vanity area (30%), and kids' play area (21%).
Interestingly, many of these features are already offered at the award-winning Singapore Changi Airport, which was named the world's best airport by Skytrax earlier this year.
In addition to a movie complex, the airport hub also boasts tropical rooftop gardens, a Balinese-themed swimming pool and Jacuzzi, free foot massages and an entertainment deck where families can play Xbox Kinect, Xbox 360. Kids can also release pent-up energy at the playground.
The Hong Kong International Airport likewise has a built-in UA IMAX theater that shows a range of IMAX 2D and 3D movies.
Recently the Abu Dhabi International Airport also rolled out sleep pods that allow tired passengers to cocoon themselves in self-contained capsules which convert into flat beds and slide fully shut.
Dubai Airport offers similar services with the SnoozeCubes, soundproof lie-flat units.
Interestingly, some flyers (5%) also named a karaoke bar as their dream airport amenity.
