The Most Beautiful Airport In The World @ Innsbruck [LOWI]

HELLO COMMUNITY!

Allow me to break up the inevitable stream of April Fools topics with some actual quality content.

Innsbruck is a tiny airport. More people pass through Hartsfield-Jackson in a single long weekend than the entire year in Innsbruck, but if you asked me which one I’d rather spot at I wouldn’t even blink - off to Austria we go.

The best part of Innsbruck is that it takes the photos for you. Even if you’re awful at plane spotting, Innsbruck makes you look good (I’m proof). If you go to Innsbruck and you still can’t get good photos, I’m sorry to say you may just have a skill issue.

There would be a Chinese Government Y-20 in this topic if @Transport_Hub didn’t decide to be weird and arrive a day after @Altaria55, @Kamryn, and I.

For those of you considering spotting here, do not go to the observation deck. It is a complete waste of time and portential.

I don’t think this needs to be said, but this airport lands itself squarely into the S-Tier. It’s crazy to think that this isn’t even its final form, as the snowy scenery during the winter adds a whole new dimension. Of the airports I’ve spotted at, I’d say this is second behind only LAX (simply because the traffic difference and the fact that LAX has some really nice spots too).

That scenery is incredible.

I call bull. If I went there my shots would be the most boring, crappy quality thing to ever exist.

Anyway amazing job as always!

TRULY ONE OF THE AIRPORTS OF ALL TIME

I’m pretty sure phone shots here on a cloudy day would be better than sunny camera shots at a wide variety of airports.
