Experts call it “dwell time.” It’s that time that passengers at airports spend once they’ve cleared security and are waiting for their flight and the average is 70 to 90 minutes. With an increased dependence on technology to do our daily work, business travelers need dwell time to be productive time. The best American airports for doing just that:

  • Denver International Airport (DIA): We may be a little biased (we’re based in Denver), but we’d agree with this 2008 Business Traveler Magazine 2008 Award winner for best North American airport. With access to business center services and reasonable wi-fi costs, DIA allows biz travellers to stay productive. If you’d prefer a little down-time the airport can accommodate with shopping, dining and massage services.
  • Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport (MSP): This Northwest Airlines hub has one of the best on-time records in the industry. Ranked as the best airport for biz travel by CNN in 2006, the extras available at this airport will make sure the second leg of your flight is as productive as the first. Hypercharge stations scattered around the terminals will charge laptops, PDAs and cell phones faster than normal outlets and a full-service day spa will massage away all the travel kinks.
  • San Francisco International (SFO): With an average security wait time (during peak hours) of five minutes, SFO makes it quick and easy to get to your gate. And with meditation rooms, business centers and outstanding food options, that dwell time is a little more tolerable.

Other airports recognized for the biz travel services include: Charlotte Douglas International (CLT) is a great alternative to Atlanta and includes free wi-fi, business center and a day spa; Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) for free wi-fi and beautiful grounds; and Dallas-Fort Worth International (DFW) because it has comfy chairs, smart parking systems and fast trains between terminals.
