Research from Netflights looked at 25 of the world’s busiest airports to see which are doing the most to improve the health and happiness of passengers.

The comparison site looked at the quality of airport facilities, including spa or gym facilities, dedicated meditation or quiet spaces, yoga studios or classes, relaxation zones, outdoor or green space, prayer rooms, access to massages and even running tracks.

Each airport was given an overall “wellness score” out of 23.

With an open-air roof terrace, dedicated silent chairs and a quiet room, Frankfurt International Airport came top.

The airport, which is a major transport hub, also has individual yoga and prayer rooms, plus a spa offering a range of treatments.

Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, which is the world’s fourth busiest airport, came in second place, followed by Dubai International Airport.

Out of the 25 airports investigated, 17 have spa facilities, offering a range of treatments from haircuts to anti-jetlag facials, while a further 13 provide massage services.
