No one can deny that in our rapidly developing world airports have become as popular as railway stations. The affordability of air travel is attracting more and more people to various airports. So it will be a pleasant experience if the airport is comfortable. We spend at least a few hours at the airport every time we fly. The airport is the point of arrival, departure, meeting and separation. It is an added bonus if it is architecturally beautiful and interesting. Listed below are 5 weird and beautiful airports around the world.
- Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, USA
One who has visited this airport would agree that it is one of the most harrowing experiences they have ever gone through. One can spot two strange objects when looking at one of the runways. We understand this would sound scary, but there are 2 grave markers embedded in the tarmac of the runway where both the owners are buried.
- Denver International Airport, USA
Established in 1995 it looks like any other building of this type. Seems completely normal, isn’t it? Contrary to the above statement, this beautiful airport is known for several conspiracy theories since its establishment. It also has a touch of Nazism. The runways make you feel slightly anxious as its shape is swastika, strange markings on the floors.
- Don Mueang International Airport, Thailand
There is a reason behind this airport being placed among the weirdest airports of the world. The Kantarat Golf Course between the two main runways is truly unique and attracts so many curious glances. In order to avoid the noise, the players are warned to look for “Safe heavens” while the planes are due to land.
- Juancho E.Yrausquin Airport, Caribbean
Though no major tragedies happened here, it is still considered as the most dangerous airport in the world. The whole island is very small possessing an extremely short runway. The physical position of the runway threatens the pilots and passengers. People smell danger when a plane lands or takes off as one side of the runway meets with the cliffs which drop into the sea whereas the other side is marked with high hills.
- Barra Airport, Scotland
Serving just 14,000 passengers per year, it is the smallest airport in our list. You might be wondering what the fuss is about? Have you heard about an airport with no runway? Yeah, that’s right. If you’re planning a trip to Barra, don’t be scared if the sandy beach welcomes you instead of the runway.
