Class "Alpha" airports

On IF, I’ve checked and the largest and most famous airports are either “Charlie” or “Bravo” class airports. I wonder if there are class “Alfa” airports. If they are on IF, Name some. Do they exist in the real world?

Class alpha is above FL180. No airport in Infinite Flight is above FL180, therefore there is no airport that is class alpha. :)

Oh ok. I thought that Airports are classed by their size.

A class of an airport refers to the class of airspace around it. Bravo airports are surrounded by class B, C and D airspace, Charlie C and D and delta just D. There is also class F and G airspace. All airspace above FL180 is Class A. Some airports also have Class A airspace, Heathrow and Gibraltar are examples of this.
