3 Things I Always Do at the Airport

I always arrive at the airport early, and have never missed a flight because of my late arrival – until last week.

I was having an early afternoon flight. My original plan was to skip the office visit in the morning and go directly to the airport. However, as our team got selected for the next round in a competition, I found it important to meet my colleagues before heading on a business trip. Time was tight, and I said to myself the meeting would need to finish in 10 minutes. Unfortunately, the meeting ran on for 50 minutes, and I ended up taking the next flight.  This is a very good lesson learned for me. I should not take it for granted. A gate can close, and it really closes.

How to have Peace of Mind before your Flight

From now on, I will plan to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours in advance, ask my secretary to pull me out from any meetings when time comes and stay in the airport hotel for an early morning flight when necessary.

This makes me recall some of my favourite airport hotels such as:

Like today, I arrived at the airport 4 hours ahead, had a really good time at the airline lounge – working and eating. The Hong Kong style egg-tart was great! I even took a shower before making a move to the gate for boarding.

Yes, the three things I always do at the airport:

  • Arrive early – work and eat
  • Shop for souvenirs
  • Take a shower
