2007/03/10 Solving long walks in air terminals

Posted on March 10, 2007 by daviding

With my increased travel to Europe, the transfers from one terminal to another feel longer and longer. Moving sidewalks help, but it’s not encouraging to stand at one end of the tunnel and not be able to see the other end. Here’s a good example at Frankfurt airport (which has parallels at Heathrow, JFK, and now even Pearson Terminal 1!)

Tunnel, Frankfurt airport

The Germans do have a solution that I don’t remember seeing in any air terminal in North America.

Bikes, Frankfurt airport

That’s really a signal that the terminal is huge, when employees can borrow a bike to travel. I’m also sure that the Germans wouldn’t be happy at a passenger doing similarly.
