Now, it would be silly to suggesr an airport is as familiar as a train or bus station while it is considerably more complicated.
But knowing your airport can take the stress out of your holiday: start badly and it’ll set your break off wrongly.
And as I begin a new journey from a new (old) airport here in Edinburgh www.edinburghairport.com my first thought is that this does save the legs.
Anybody who has been through Dublin Airport (www.dublinairport.com) knows the long hike to your airplane.
It almost feels like you are taking the strain off the plane by walking halfway to your holiday destination yourself.
So leave yourself plenty of time. while it’s easy to mix up your Ryanairs and Aer Linguses.
Apply this logic too to even bigger airports where it might involve buses between terminals, or even trains.
And ALWAYS read the small print on your information… you may be flying with an auxiliary airline from Munich to Athens.
And the main airline where you are is in another terminal in the airport.
