Airport with the best approach

In my opinion the best approach has the Island Funchal (LPMA) because of the stunning View to the ocean and to the Island :)

Paro (VQPR), descending while looking at the Himalayas, it looks stunning. Also, doing fully visual approach has its magic :)

I’d say Skardu (OPSD) mainly because of its difficulty and looks. It is in a somewhat-isolated valley and requires a couple circling approaches just to get low enough to land while avoiding mountains. The biggest aircraft that can go here is the A320. In my opinion, it keeps you entertained.

The country that I’m currently in has it. Although I’m not on the mainland. The best approach has to be Toncontin, no changing my mind

Best approach? Hmmm…

Zurich! Wait no…

Gibraltar is pretty nice too.

But wait… there’s Skiathos!

I don’t know. There’s too many to choose from.

Any approach into KSLC is so beautiful, my favourite has to be coming from the north off a transatlantic flight bc you get Bear Lake and the entire Wasatch Range, absolutely stunning
