Bored Panda has collected a list of some of airports and airlines that went the extra mile to better the lives of their customers, and it will make you want to book a ticket ASAP.

From short story dispensers to children's playgrounds and even pet pooping stations, these companies are focused on all of their clients. Scroll down to check out the images that will cure your fear of flying, and don't forget to upvote your favorites, too!

#1 A Sign By The Airport In Helsinki, Finland

A Sign By The Airport In Helsinki, Finland

saizenki Report

Rachel Perkins 11 months ago

This was actually a banner for the Slush event (technology and startup convention) in Helsinki at Messukeskus (about 20km away from the Helsinki Vantaa Airport). The Slush and MyHelsinki logos at the sides have been cut off from the image and just below the banner there's a sign informing attendees about badge queues.
