What’s Changing Business Travel On The Ground

Posted on: June 10th, 2014 by Pontarelli Chicago Limousine Service No Comments

People have noticed and this post charts the development of some the most notable developments in major airports for business travelers.

New Terminals

LAX’s new Tom Bradley International Terminal (The ‘TBIT’) is the new travel experience in LA. Described by LAX as a “flowing roofline that recalls the rhythm of the waves breaking on the beach,” it cost $1.9 billion. It’s designed with the A380 in mind, which with its many boarding bridges is surprisingly fast to board and disembark from.

For the business traveler, significant thought has gone into getting the security and customs areas laid out as efficiently as possible. There is a wide range of healthy and diverse dining options and a great (110 feet tall) hall to enjoy it all in.

Other side of the Atlantic

London has also been spending money to improve service at London Heathrow’s New Terminal 2. Costing $4 billion, it has been dubbed the “The Queen’s Terminal” and is the best thought out of all the terminals at Heathrow. With all 23 of Star Alliance’s carriers being under one roof for the first time, transfer times should be significantly less than previously.

There have also been improvements to customs, bag drop and waiting times, something that should please all business travelers. Wi-Fi is now free and tables allow busy people to stay productive right up until they’re called for their flight. Premium passengers should benefit from new fast-track procedures and many new and healthy eateries abound.
