Machu Picchu airport

Machu Picchu may be one of the world’s most recognizable and widely visited destinations, but it’s also surprisingly difficult to get to, which some may say is part of its appeal. Visitors must arrive via the small airport in nearby Cusco, which has a single runway and can only accommodate narrow-bodied aircrafts on stopover flights from Lima and other Peruvian cities close by. The airport would allow for direct flights to Machu Picchu from major cities in the US and Latin America, but it wo...

Save Your Money: 7 Tricks I Actually Use to Breeze Through Airport Security

“Airport security is the one part of the air travel journey where there’s no special privileges other than perhaps a separate lane to stand in. It sucks for everyone equally, and generally feels like watching a movie you’ve seen 5,000 times on slow motion, with the white noise volume turned up.” The paragraph you just read came from...

7 Factors You Should Consider About Choosing to Live Near an Airport

For the thirty-fifth time this year, the alarm rouses you out of a deep sleep at 4:00 in the morning to alert you that you need to get ready to catch your flight. Hitting that snooze button is only delaying the inevitable: you need to leave that warm comfortable bed, get dressed, and deal with your commute to the airport — wishing that the airport was not so far away so that you do not need to wake up so early in the morning. “Between work and personal trips we estimate we make about 30-35 commu...

Three dead in Nepal airport crash

Nepal’s Tenzing-Hillary Lukla Airport , the main gateway to the Everest region, is considered to be the most dangerous airport in the world, and not without reason. Measuring only 1,500 feet, the runway doesn’t leave much wiggle room for pilot error. The runway is surrounded by sizeable mountains and the drop at the very end of the landing strip reaches almost 10,000 feet, so taking off from this airport is as sketchy as it gets. On Saturday, a twin-engine aircraft attempting to take off fro...

Where to eat at Paris airport

The Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France, sees nearly 70 million passengers annually, making it the second largest airport in France and the eighth largest in the world in terms of passenger volume. And while Paris in and of itself is a destination, the airport is a major hub for connecting flights — more than 30 percent of the people in Charles de Gaulle every year are connecting to somewhere else. That means lots of downtime for eating. You can find a decent meal in pretty much every ...
