Being hours early to the airport no longer means having to be cooped up indoors. One of the hottest trends happening at terminals these days is outdoor decks or seating areas as a perk for passengers. Most of these 7 outdoor spaces include great views of airplanes, taxiways, and runways and some offer travelers such extras as cocktails, dining, and Wi-FI access.

The terrace offers great views of the activity on the field, along with aircraft taking off and landing. The fence features small gaps that allows visitors to take photos on the tarmac.
