The Busiest, The Biggest and The Best

Great Airports of the World vol.2 is a 100-page publication which examines in detail the most influential, busiest, largest and most impressive global air hubs.

This special edition from the team behind Airports of the World magazine details ten airports from around the world – some of which have won awards, those that have handled huge amounts of traffic, and others that are exciting or pleasant to use.

Features include:

Manchester International
Manchester Airport has grown to become the busiest
airport in the UK outside of London. Andy Martin charts
the former Ringway airport’s history and explains its
plans for expansion over the next ten years.

Melbourne Tullamarine
Melbourne Tullamarine has set the Qantas and Ansett
duopoly behind it, and is thriving with a new terminal
opening recently and low-cost carriers entering the fray.
Chris Frame reports from Down Under.

Rio de Janeiro Santo Dumont
Rio’s downtown airport, in the shadow of Sugarloaf
Mountain, provides a range of high-frequency domestic
flights from a very short runway. Renato Serra Fonseca
tells the story of this much-loved facility.

St Maartin

Maho Beach is one of the world’s most alluring venues
for aircraft watching. But there’s more to Princess
Juliana – and its nearby relatives Saint Barths and Saba
– than simply sea, sand and sunshine.

Los Angeles International
LAX is the fifth busiest airport in the world, and one of
only a few more often referred to by its IATA code than
by its name. Andy Martin and Craig West outline how
the California facility has developed over the years.

Flughafen München II is a rising star in Europe and has
regularly won Best in Europe awards since it opened
25 years ago. Andy Martin profiles Germany’s second
busiest airport.

Plus much more!
