Going to the airport can truly be one of the most time-consuming, hectic parts of any trip. However, with a little advanced preparation and a few simple tips, getting through the airport can be a breeze. Use the following tips to have an efficient, stress-free airport experience.
Righty, let’s see what this week brought in regards to airport related news stories. Understandingly there still seems to be quite some nervousness at airports around the globe relating back to the Boston bombing. We saw two news stories that showed that this week, one from the United States and one from England.
We’ve seen a rather weird 7 days this week as only small news articles trickled into our newsroom. Most articles contained news of either some post-Boston-explosion nervousness or smaller airport incidents from around the world.
Where the hack is Brunei, you might ask? You’re excused as he country is one of the smaller ones, hence exactly knowing where it is might not be everyone’s geography forte. So let us put our teacher’s voice on and tell you that Brunei is a tiny sultan state on the island of Borneo in South East Asia. Borneo itself is the third largest island on the planet and shares its land mass between three countries: Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei.
Well, well, well – what an eventful week this one was, huh? Without doubt Boston was the focus of this week’s general news coverage which had a massive spill-over into the transport section as well.

It’s been a rather busy week in airport news-land: There was an award given out to the best airport of the world, a storm cancelled nearly 500 flights in a U.S. city and a VIP got stripped of their status at an African airport to name just three of the many stories we received this week.

The U.S., normally dominant on airport related stories is absent in our review this week, which we think, is a welcome change. However, you can re-read all posts we published throughout the week on our Twitter page (which has a few U.S. stories…).
Nope, we haven’t forgotten about our dear readers, but we have to admit that we did get so busy, that last week’s airport update just didn’t quite happen – as you might have noticed. So this week, we’ll do a quick recap of what we’ve missed the week before and then go straight into the current week’s activities coming from the U.S., Bolivia and Sri Lanka.
