Prayer booth available for nervous plane passengers

by Tola Mbakwe

Travelers at one German airport can now have some peace by entering a booth and listening to a prayer of their choice before boarding a plane.

A spokesman for Stuttgart Airport's told Associated Press (AP) its third terminal has a new prayer booth. There are 300 prayers from various religions in 65 different languages available.

Johannes Schumm, the airport's spokesman, said: "Often, passengers still have a bit of time before their departure at the gate.

"The prayer booth is an offer by the airport's chaplains to provide a moment of contemplation."

The former photo booth includes the Christian Lord's Prayer and American TV preachers on the touch-screen display.

The booth is free of charge and will be available for three months at Stuttgart Airport's boarding area next to Gate 310.

According to AP, the booth was designed by Berlin artist Oliver Sturm.

He wrote on his homepage: "All prayers are real prayers of believers, gathered in worship, prayer rooms, homes."

Sturm has designed several prayer booths in recent years that have been installed at schools, universities and museums.
