Macau International Airport (VMMC)
Lukla Airport (VNLK)
Bangkok don muang international (VTBD)
Wilson Ranch (CO68)
I will be adding suggestions to the list, please include ICAO code, and reason as to why it should be on this list
I know your list is focusing on Interesting and Weird Airports rather than dangerous but isn’t it quote similar to this one?
Hello Infinite Flight Community.
I was having a look through the community and have noticed that all of the most dangerous airport topics are closed.
Anyways Lets make a new fresh Most Dangerous Airports Topic.
I’ll start off with one and then we can build this up.

LOWS Salzburg View Info
LOWI Innsbruck View Info
TNCS Saba View Info
KASE Aspen View Info
KEGE Eagle County View Info
VQPR Paro View Info
I mean some of the airports you have already is in the list of that other thread I linked and there’s a description of how they are dangerous, or weird to land at.
Could be, I’ll let the mods decide, cause some airports can be interesting, while not being dangerous
I don’t think so, I believe this is a duplicate anyway :
5 Weirdest Airports
After my flight im going to check these airports
Once again, gonna let a mod decide, I’ill be fine if they say it is
i find the runway layout of EGCC Manchester International pretty qwerky - anybody landing on 23L has a pretty long journey to the gate!
Congrats on being the first addition form another person
Kansai Int Aiport (RJBB), it’s a human made
It has already been put down, please check to see if an airport has already been put on the list
This thread isn’t about airports that are necessarily dangerous, it’s more about interesting airports, although they can de dangerous
I’ve already linked it once, and he replied to my post which already has that thread linked. No need to repeat by send the link again, when it’s already been mentioned once, thank you.
Totegegie (NTGJ) is worth a landing… if you find where to start from… there is a nice video of a tbm landing there.
i like atlanta’s airport desin here is a picture of atlanta
Interesting Airport: Cairns Int’l (YBCS)
What is it? Cairns Airport is an international airport in Cairns, Australia. The airport is located 2.3 nautical miles northwest of Cairns or 7 kilometres north of the Cairns central business district.
Why it’s interesting: The airport itself isn’t very interesting, but the Runway 15 departure is, situated between high levels of Terrain, the departure from 15 involves a sharp turn to the north-east to avoid terrain almost directly after take-off.
There are actually many human made islands for airports so it’s not really weird
Courchevel Altiport (LFLJ)
There is no go around procedure for landings at Courchevel, due to the surrounding mountainous terrain.
Added both of you
@Oli_H and @SimpleWaffles
Here’s a weird one I just found in IF.
It’s this tiny Argentinian airport in Antarctica that is an ice runway. It is pretty difficult to land at because it’s hard to tell how far away the ground is.
I HIGHLY suggest trying this out in IF
