Sometimes our trip is affected by uncomfortable stopovers in airports that we do not know completely, and at first glance, we only see inconveniences. However, you can make the most of your layover if you plan it and know a little the advantages of each place. Today we will see what to do during a stop at an airport.
Many airports, with large flow of passengers in transit, offer a point of information to better know the options that you have in your waiting. Others are very close to an interesting city to make a break for several hours. The most important thing is to face the situation with a positive attitude and use the time of the stop to get the most of it.
This airport is decorated in warm tones and is tremendously quiet, although it is also one offering most services to its passengers.

At some point we all go to the JFK in New York. The airport is quite far from the city, making it uncomfortable and tedious to spend half the stopover in a queue through Manhattan traffic.
