The phenomenon of the "airport dad" has taken over many social networks, denoting a man who takes responsibility for delivering other family members when they need to go to the airport. This new "viral" marker has generated a wide response from people who can relate to the "airport dad." At the same time, it has forced many women to reconsider their attitudes and assessments of what kind of man they should be looking up to.

The Your Tango website writes about this: "On social media, women are massively encouraged to marry and have children only from 'airport fathers'. Thus, the popular blogger YaYa in her video on TikTok appealed to all single women to find a man like "dad from the airport" with whom, in her opinion, you can start a family.

"Marry an 'airport dad' and have children only from him, and if you don't know what it is, follow the hashtag," she said.

Most of the videos under this hashtag show how "airport dads" make sure their families arrive on time and are ready to check in hours before the plane takes off, how they keep boarding passes and passports so that nothing gets lost.

"These 'airport dads' hold the luggage and walk five steps ahead of the family because they always know where to go," YaYa explained.

The stewardess said that an "airport father" starts with a "guy or man from the airport"

YaYa's video received a lot of feedback, likes and comments. In particular, a flight attendant named Sharmi commented on it and said that during her work she had seen "countless couples" in which the men undoubtedly embodied all the characteristics of this example.

"I've been working as a flight attendant for five years now and I've seen countless couples getting on and off airplanes and moving around airports," Sharmi said. "So, 'airport dad' always starts as 'airport boyfriend' or 'airport husband'.

Sharmi recalls seeing a guy carrying all the bags, while his female companion could only worry about her purse and "loving him." "A candidate for 'airport dad,'" she says, "is always the first to see a beverage cart moving down the aisle and ask his girlfriend or wife what to get."

Why is the "airport dad" so popular?

The popularity of this type of man, psychologists explain, suggests that women prefer to have a partner who shares all the workload with them.

Although the phenomenon of the "airport dad" looks like a funny internet trend, it also makes it clear how exhausted women feel when they are with partners who avoid housework, don't raise children, and are useless when they travel.

It is even more interesting to look at the number of men who believe that the title of "airport father" is already an achievement. Thus, according to a survey conducted by the British travel company Jet2holidays, 69% of fathers said that when going on vacation, they simply have to take responsibility.

At the same time, 44% said that everything related to the role of an "airport parent," including trip planning, causes them anxiety.

In essence, an airport dad is not just a passive observer when it comes to a partner, but is fully involved and present in the process.

This archetype is opposed to the aloof, uninvolved partner, the man that many women often complain about. This proves once again that women value those for whom these qualities are a priority, as they contribute to a sense of safety and security in a relationship.

We can laugh at the funny videos from the series: "Dad from the airport", but they also remind us that when it comes to love and partnership, it is very nice to have a person by your side who is not afraid to take responsibility, even if it is a simple trip to the airport and storing passports.
