Finding the best private spaces in US airports


A recent survey found that 92 percent of travelers wish airports offered private spaces allowing them to get work done and relax while waiting to board flights. Especially when delayed, most holiday travelers crave a comfortable chair, an electrical outlet, or simply a quiet place to get some last-minute work done.

Realizing these areas exist but are often hard to locate in busy airports, 3M Privacy Filters is introducing a mobile compatible version of its travel website (formerly so holiday travelers can easily locate the best private spaces at their airport – right from the airport on their smartphone.

From deserted airport gates to serene chapels and meditation rooms, contains an extensive collection of the best places to find privacy, get work done, or simply relax at airports across the US. Frequent business travelers and road warriors helped 3M create the travel website by contributing their insider secrets to help their fellow travelers. 3M continues to seek new airport privacy havens and encourages travelers to submit their suggestions at the website.

For this November only, 3M Privacy Filters will create three Airport Privacy Havens in some of the busiest US airports where privacy is needed most:

– Chicago O’Hare International: Terminal 2 near entrance to concourses E & F (November 1-December 1)

– Dallas-Fort Worth International: Terminal C near Gates 2 and 3 (November 1-December 1)

– John F Kennedy International Airport in New York: Terminal 8 near entrance to American Airline’s Admiral Club (November 10-December 7)

Each Airport Privacy Haven will offer travelers comfortable, private seating and electrical outlets throughout the month of November along with special services during the busiest days of the Thanksgiving travel season. On November 24-25 and November 28-29, 2009 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, travelers who visit the havens will enjoy free massages and complimentary Wi-Fi access.

Sheryle Taylor, marketing communication manager, 3M Optical Systems, said, “Through these three unique airport privacy havens and our travel website, we want to help business travelers find the total privacy
when and where they need it most.”
