The Buzz of Airport Transfers

Airports have a special aura around them and deliver an electric feeling that very few buildings are capable of giving. The airport is always in a state of motion, acting as a conveyor belt for the benefit of holidaymakers and business people. Airport transfers take you to the entrance teeming with people, and with taxis and space wagons all around. Each of such vehicles will be bringing forth people and families looking forward to an exciting vacation. The physical structure of terminals may not be in a state of change, but airport transfer services are. The airport can be compared to the skin and bones while the travellers are rightly called the pumping blood. They come and go, and in between indulge in eating and drinking. Vehicles, luggage porters, baggage handling personnel, security aspects – all these add to the buzz in an airport.

Airport has a sort of greater liveliness about them when compared to a school or a hotel. Transfers between the various terminals, each serving different countries and continents take the figure of trains or conveyor belts, and internal transfers have been evolving with time. One can see fidgety businessmen holding on to bottles of perfume meant for their so- called neglected wives, Canadian backpackers binging on the previous night’s surplus and pensioners indulging in Spanish south. Transfers dash along the broad corridors of Singapore terminal, on their way to Thailand to the north, or Indonesia to the south. People who arrive late in Amsterdam race towards the flight to the USA. The entire game of people going places continues without a break.

Unceasing in its unrelenting buzz, the airport is one entity that is almost unfeasible to pin down. The airport’s temporary residents otherwise called passengers would finally go to their tubes and go through the in-flight magazines in a very careless manner. Beginning to come off a satisfying shopping or costly airport food, these passengers or travellers would be impatiently waiting for the take off of their respective flights and going up into the blue or grey sky. There also, they are waiting for another kind of experience.

The vignettes of red sparkling wine from flight 209 and black coffee from another, the compact lasagne of Italy, the small spring rolls of the Shanghai- all are bound to leave an indelible impression in the minds of these travelling lot. It will take some time for the enriching experience of air travel to leave the person’s psyche. The phenomenon of jet lag is the result of this experience; the letting-go of the heady world of mini dishes and curd pots, sparkling wine refills and bottles of that malted liquid.

At the other end, activities continue at the usual pace; airport transfers to different destinations or perhaps transfers to their homes and familiar beds. Sometimes the process of checking out can be pathetic when the human train gets delayed by passport checks or when the luggage fails to appear on the other side. Suitcase retrieved, its time to exit the structure to the lap of the earth.
