Airport offers 36 high-tech stations with PS4s, 4K TVs and brand new games

Tech obsessives can finally enjoy themselves while waiting for a plane.

Sitting in the airport can be fun for a couple of hours thanks to the shops, dining options and even nail salons.

But, if you end up with a delayed flight or even a cancellation it can be boring to spend hours stuck in the terminal.

While some are happy to wait while reading their book there’s a new option for passengers travelling from Dallas Fort Worth Airport.

The Texas airport has installed two lounges with gaming consoles for tech-fan passengers in terminals E and B.

There are 14 gaming stations in terminal B which all come with a Playstation 4 pro, the latest games, lounge chairs, 43″ 4K TVs, charging ports, luggage storage and high-spec gaming headphones.

The zone in terminal E has 22 of the same well-equipped gaming stations.

So anyone who is happy to game for hours while waiting for their flight will be in heaven.

However, while you may be thrilled to play, you do have to pay for the privilege.

The price ranges from $15.99 (£14.42) for half an hour or $39.99 (£36.07) for unlimited play.

Reddit users obsessed with gaming recently discovered the gaming lounge.

One person said: "Damn it I was just in DFW a few days ago with a 6 hour layover. If only I found this…. I was stuck watching TV shows on my tablet."

"I found this when I had an eight hour layover," added another. "Helped pass the time for sure."

A third joked: "I need to reschedule my flight again for the 16th time. I'm having real trouble with this level."

Other terminals in the US have also begun to offer gaming stations – Los Angeles airport has them at Terminal 3 and 6.

While Charlotte Douglas Airport offers them at terminal E.

In Singapore Chango and Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airports passengers can find gaming spaces with retro games and merchandise too.

While UK airports might not yet offer gaming zones – though hopefully they will in the future – there are plenty of lounges you can relax in with reading materials, free food, drinks and business amenities like Wi-Fi and quiet zones.

Some airports, like Blackpool International, have arcade games like air hockey to get stuck into.

While Edinburgh Airport has an Airport Gallery with original Scottish artwork to admire.

And, London Heathrow has an observation deck in terminal 4 that gives you a 270-degree panoramic view of the southern runway, binoculars and flight-tracking touchscreens.
