5 of the Smallest Airports in the World


When we travel, we’re generally used to going through huge crowds of people, and moving to several corners of each airport, as though they were a city within a city. Thankfully, that isn’t the case with all of the airports in the world. In fact, some of them are so small, you won’t believe they’re actually real. Here are 5 of the smallest airports in the world:

Barra Airport

The Barra Airport in the Barra Island, Outer Hebrides, Scotland, is the only beach runway in the world to that handles scheduled airline services. Although it’s a bit of a shack on the beach, Barra offers travellers plenty of parking, car rental facilities, as well as public transport that serves the remainder of the island. The shortest runway (of 3) at Barra is only 680 metres.
