• Love is in the air at the airport

    2013-01-07

    When most people think of romantic places to meet potential partners, an airport departure lounge may not immediately leap to mind. However, that is the premise behind a new website that aims to connect lonely hearts who also happen to be frequent fliers, reports CNN.

    Founded by internet entrepreneur Steve Pasternack, Meetattheairport.com provides air passengers with a way to meet like-minded singles who want to connect with other people while waiting in airport lounges. In addition to basic personal information, users are also prompted to provide details on their flight, airport and destination to create lists of potential matches.

    "I noticed a lot of people at the bar looking for something to do, and I thought it'd be great if I could get them to meet each other," Pasternack told the news source, recalling an incident when his flight was delayed at Miami International in 2011. "What better time to meet somebody new than when you're sitting in an airport?"

    With the number of people taking flights increasing every year, Pasternack's venture has the potential to revolutionize the experience of waiting at the airport. According to data published by the Research and Innovative Technology Administration, more than 642 million flights were taken in the U.S. this year, meaning there are plenty of opportunities for romantic passengers to make a connection after checking their bags.
