In the age of grotty airports and budget airlines it seems there’s not much room left for glamour. In a new poll from HolidayExtras.com, almost one in three travellers (30%) admit that airports make them feel stressed and a further 19% say they feel tired and grubby at the airport.
Female passengers appear to find airports more unpleasant than men, with 11% more women sensing the negative effects of air travel. However, a minority of women (7%) embrace their inner Victoria Beckham and feel like a celebrity whilst passing through the airport.*
A practical 41% of UK air travellers don’t feel any different from normal, whilst 3% claim that the airport makes them feel emotional.
Anthony Clarke Cowell, head of product innovation and development, said: “The fact that air travel has become more accessible in recent decades is fantastic but it does make it less of a glamorous affair.
