An airport has at least one runway for take off and land, and mostly also some buildings like

  • a tower for controlling the airplanes
  • hangars for parking or maintenance
  • terminal buildings for passengers and freight
  • larger airports will have additional facilities for passengers like restaurants and shopping areas.
  • international airports will have a custom and border control

 Other airports might support helicopters (like helipads) or military verhicles (on airbases)
