Airports Information

An airport is a hub of aviation transportation. It may be large and commercial, or small and private, with runways and buildings for the take off, landing, and maintenance of airplanes and helicopters. It also has control towers, hangars, and terminals. Air travel is convenient and popular, with the International Air Travel Association (IATA) estimating that 9 million people travel by air every day.
