'Kiss And Fly' Zone At Aalborg Airport Limits Goodbye Smooches To 3 Minutes (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Looking for a kiss that'll put your head in the clouds? Denmark's Aalborg Airport has you covered.

The facility features a "Kiss and goodbye" zone near its entrance, where amorous travelers can squeeze in one last smooch before parting ways. Be warned, though: As stated by the sign, Aalborg puts a strict three-minute limit on the kisses.

Interestingly, a photo of the sign from December 2011 does not include a time limit, suggesting the three-minute cutoff was instated sometime in between then and now.

What event precipitated the change? We'd love to know, and have reached out to the airport for more information, hoping to hear of a kiss so steamy they had to put an official limit on it.

We aren't sure what happens to passengers who exceed Aalborg's three-minute policy, but at New Jersey's Liberty International Airport, last-minute kisses have been known to shut the whole place down.

If that isn't enough time for a drop-off and goodbye kiss, travelers would be well advised to fly out of Luxembourg, which boasts a 30-minute kissing zone.

Update: 12:00 p.m. -- In an email to The Huffington Post, Søren Svendsen, Aalborg's Airport Director, explained the time limit was not implemented after lengthy kisses led to missed flights; rather, passengers had parked cars there too many times, causing a nuisance. Per Svendsen, Aalborg has had the zone for approximately 5 years.
