Business travelers are, by necessity, some of the most savvy travelers out there. It’s a natural side effect of spending countless hours navigating packed airports and waiting out delays. This also means that the inefficiencies of modern air travel are a little more frustrating than they might be to vacationers; after all, a sluggish security line is more tolerable when you experience it twice in a year rather than twice every week. It’s no surprise, then, that major airports cater to business travelers as much as reasonably possible. UK-based air travel website Globehunters just released a list of the world’s best airports for business travelers, which takes many of these factors into account. And by extension, they’re great airport options for average travelers for their high-tech and efficient offerings. Three (only three?)

This is very true…my first long-haul business class flight was 6,910 miles away to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
