The 10 Largest Airports in the World As Seen From Above

Abu Dhabi Airport

Abu Dhabi International Airport Abu Dhabi International Airport lies just 32km (20 miles) east of the heart of Abu Dhabi city. It is one of the fastest growing airports in the world, with ambitious expansion plans as the demand for flights to Abu Dhabi continue to grow, and it even boasts its own well-respected sand golf course. source

ICAO Airport Codes | Definition

The ICAO code is a four-character alphanumeric code designating each airport around the world, and are defined by the International Civil Aviation Organization.

For example, travellers who use London's Heathrow Airport will most likely be familiar with its IATA code: LHR. They are less likely, however, to be familiar with the ICAO code: EGLL.

List of Cities with 2+ Airports

Many cities contain more than one airport, typically to avoid congestion, and where there may be factors preventing expansion to existing airports.

When flying to/from these cities, you need to know which airport you are using. It is especially important if you have a connecting flight in one of these cities, as a change in airport may be required.
