Of course, traveler demands differ
by generation. A recent study by The
Collinson Group discovered that Baby

Boomers make pampering a priority
during vacations, but less than half of
them require an airport lounge. Gen X
travelers are looking for family-oriented
activities, which maybe why 48 percent
of them favor an airport lounge to rest
in. Millennials travel more often, seeking
"once-in-a-lifetime" experiences at a low
price point, but 53 percent of them still
want that airport lounge.
The difference in generational needs
helps explain the need for personalized
experiences. Most independent lounges
offer snacks and beverages, Wi-Fi,
charging stations, newspapers and other
standard amenities. However, some
secondary airports are now offering
lounges with separate zones for business
and leisure travelers of any generation.
They even offer unique amenities such
as personal showers, private phone
booths, workstations, meditation rooms,
and playrooms for children. The Club
network of lounges is an example of an
independent lounge where passengers can
find the perfect zone for them as they
prepare for the next leg of their journey.

entertaining transit passengers and
introducing them to the local culture.
Airports in the San Francisco Bay Area
feature tasting rooms where travelers
can sample Napa Valley wines between
flights. The trend toward the pampered
passenger is growing worldwide.
Thousands of travelers f ly in and
out of secondary airports every day. A
new trend is transforming these airports
into more than just a waiting room
between departure and destination. With
improved passenger amenities, airports
and independent lounges are becoming
part of the travel experience. Soon, any
traveler will be able to find a space to
relax and refuel before and between
flights. 
