If you’re hoping to get away from the hustle and bustle of the airport, it might be time to add MSP’s Escape Lounge to your travel checklist.

With a spacious 5,000-square-foot common area, there are plenty of spots to accommodate guests and their needs. There are options for every kind of traveler, whether you need an area to focus and catch up on work or just want to sit back and relax before take-off.
