An Airport

An airport is a landing and taking off area of the planes. It is a place where airplanes can land or take off. It is a station and parking zone for the airbuses. Most airports in the world have only a long strip of level ground called a runway. Planes come here from all over the world and go there continuously. An airport usually has paved runways and maintenance facilities and serves as a terminal for passengers and cargo. It is a very reserved and conservative area. It is interesting to see how the movement of so many planes is tracked in perfect order.

Many airports have buildings that are used to hold airplanes and passengers. It has very strong security. It is conducted by the government or authority. No one can exit or enter into it without the permission of the authority. A building that holds passengers waiting for their planes or luggage is called a terminal. It has a passenger terminal and some runways. It has also many checking posts, lounge rooms, control rooms, guardrooms, etc. It is also a mending or repairing workshop for the planes. The vast majority of airfields throughout the world are still relatively simple facilities. Even now, many have unpaved runways or at most lightly paved runways with tiny terminal or administration buildings, a rudimentary control tower, and crude landing aids. Airports also have buildings called hangars to hold planes when they are not used. Some airports have buildings to control the airport, like a control tower which tells planes where to go. One of the most important buildings at an airport is the control tower. In this building, airport workers keep the airplanes traveling safely by communicating special instructions to the pilots of the airplanes guiding them for safe travels.

An international airport is a large airport that airplanes can use to fly to and from other countries. A domestic airport is an airport which is usually smaller and only has airplanes coming from places in the same country. Planes take their fuel and many other necessary things from here. It should be a high land. Water does not flood here during the rainy season. Every country has some international airports. An airport used by the military is often called an air force base or airbase. An aircraft carrier is a floating airbase. Most international airports have shops and restaurants for airplane passengers to use. It plays a vital role in the field of international relations.
