If you’re like me, flying is arduous work. For this observer, the pain lies in the stress of trying to make a flight, hoping it’s not delayed once I get there, all the while wondering what kind of halitosis factory I’ll have to sit next to for the next three hours.
However, the airport experience itself doesn’t have to be that bad. I’m currently in the process of scheduling an interview for our September/October edition of BizVoice, in which I’ll feature the new airport terminal in Indianapolis. Should be a very interesting interview and I’m looking forward to learning about all the new amenities and how it will benefit businesses in the state.
I also came across this interesting piece by economic development columnist William Fulton in which he explains a potential evolution into "new urbanist" airports that also serve as business centers.
