Extreme airports world over

December 9th, 2010

It’s coming up to weekend – one day left! – and it occurred to us that we could put out on the blog one of these rankings everybody’s crazy about. You know which ones- «the 100 best/worst/most disgusting/shocking/brutal airports/tattoos/surgical mistakes» and so on and so forth.

Given our profile, it’s obvious what kind of things arouse our interest – aviation related, to be precise airports. We browsed through the internet and this is the list:

1)  Princess Juliana International Airport  - A classic example of an extreme airport. Pictures of aircraft just some metres above the heads of stunned tourists are emblematic of this airport.

2) Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport – Saba Island, Netherlands Antilles - Strange as though it is, no accident has happened there which sounds odd when you look at his picture.

3) Tenzing-Hillary Airport / Lukla Airport - It’s there all mountain climbers with Mount Everest in their schedule have to go.

4) Barra International Airport - See this water surface over there? It’s the airport. Or it serves as one once in a while during the ebb tide……
