As we travel on our journey around the world recording thousands of free sound effects, we regular find ourselves waiting at airports, and what better opportunity to record the ambiences found there. From outside the terminal building, in one of the many corridors, the check in, security hall, departure lounges right through to passport control and baggage reclaim. We’ve recorded them all and they are all free to download here. Not only that but they span a range of airports too, from the small terminal building at France’s La Rochelle airport through to larger ones such as Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted in the UK to JFK in New York. They are recorded at different times too, some busy, some not so busy.
