Airport wandering as a psychotic symptom.

Abstract

It appears that wandering at airports can be the expression in certain psychotic patients whose conflicts relate to separation and reunion as a major area of disturbance. The case reports presented demonstrate a causal relationship between attraction to the airport setting and ideas relating to abandonment and reuniting with family. The patients whose symptoms are focused in these settings may be found wandering in various airports around the world.
