For newbie corporate flyers, the opportunity to visit new places regularly is exciting.
But for Dallasites traveling for work frequently, the novelty wears off fairly quickly.
With that in mind, here are five tips on making business travel a more enjoyable and stress-free experience when you’re jetting off from Dallas Airport.
The hours leading up to your flight can be tense, but Dallas Airport has a range of facilities to keep you occupied.
For the busy worker, most of the terminals have private office suites. Each suite is kitted out with a 32” monitor, wireless keyboard and mouse, and daybeds. There are also printing, fax and scanning facilities.
Alternatively, for those who prefer less traditional workspace, check out The Bubble (presented by Coca-Cola) in terminals A and E — it’s a cool relaxation space complete with charging stations, TVs and vintage Coca-Cola décor.

To survive the perils of business trips, you’re going to need to arm yourself with some gadgets.
Number one for any business traveler is a portable wi-fi device. Traveling from place to place, you’re bound to encounter unreliable wi-fi at some stage, and on a working trip, that’s a risk you can’t afford to take.
Next, if you’re expecting to pick up some extras on your travels (gifts from your business associates or souvenirs for your nearest and dearest), get yourself a mini digital luggage scale. You can weigh your luggage anywhere with this item and there’ll be no more worrying about hefty excess luggage fees at the airport.

The human body is not designed for sitting and frequent flying can really take its toll on your body.
So get yourself a travel cushion to aid your posture and support your lower back and top it off with a neck cushion for total comfort.
Pack a tennis ball too (yes, a tennis ball!) – it’s actually the ultimate mini massage device. Roll it under your feet and thighs to combat discomfort and keep your blood flowing healthily.
One fun thing
Business travel shouldn’t be all work, so make it your goal to do at least one fun thing during your trip – something you can talk about when you get back home
Whether it’s dining out at a nice restaurant, checking out a top tourist attraction, or simply taking a short walk around the area, try to do something extracurricular that nourishes needs beyond business.
Getting to the airport
No businessperson wants to begin their travels crammed inside public transport, so driving to the airport is a great option.
