A proper airport greeting consists of…

This is for all those individuals out there who actually might not know how to conduct a “proper airport greeting”. It sounds ridiculous to have to describe it, but I think it’s necessary.

For the person picking up or greeting the person flying, be at the airport waiting to greet the other person before they get there… this doesn’t mean just before they exit the airport and greeting them at the curb but before the plane lands. An yes, go and park the car and wait in the airport!

For the person flying or arriving, receive the greeting and avoid rushing for your baggage or some other excuse. For family or married couples, this most likely means a hug and/or kiss. Ask how the flight was and express how much you miss each other and are glad to finally see them.

Collect their baggage and have a quick sit down and/or coffee  if time permits and it’s appropriate. Depart the airport.

Hope this helps, but I know there are still those out there who believe they’re perpetually in hurry for the next event and won’t be able to properly greet one another at the airport!
