Passing through airport airspace (expert server)

So when im passing though an airport at cruise and their Approach/Departure are online I contact departure right. Not landing at the airport or even no altitude simply just passing though their airspace. What do I do if their is only approach or tower do I contact them?

No if you are at cruise you don’t need to contact anyone as you are outside of there airspace. Approach and departure airspace extends to FL180.

Likewise when approach and departure isn’t active, tower airspace extends to 5,000 feet for transitions, so anything above that and you are fine.

Hope this helps!
