Some airports encouraging exercise, healthy eating habits

The Wall Street Journal reports airports are competing to become the healthiest option for airline passengers to eat at during their layover.

Airports are starting to provide newer, healthier options at concessions, as well as yoga studios in the terminal.

Kevin Smith, assistant vice president for terminal management at Dallas Fort Worth airport, said, “There is a lot of competition between airports…We want to be the healthiest airport in the nation.”

DFW and other airports have also installed walking paths to encourage both passengers and employees to walk to their destination in the terminal, instead of using moving walkways and trams.
