For those who feel overwhelmed by traveling or may need a moment to themselves, the Philadelphia International Airport now offers a 315-square foot "Quiet Room" open 24 hours every day, the airport announced Thursday.
The airport described the room as "a place of silence, which all passengers may use regardless of their worldview, culture and religious affiliation." The airport quietly shared the news of the opening on social media accounts and included photos, as well as a video tour of the space on the company's Instagram story.
Travelers can find the space, which includes two open areas divided by frosted glass, after security in the D-E connection. Amenities include wooden benches and "Floating Prayer Seeds or dandelion seeds" throughout the room as accents, according to the news release. If a passenger needs to cleanse before prayer, there is also a foot bath.
