Airports

See how world countries compare to each other in terms of Airports. Follow the color coded map to visually see how Airports is distributed between world countries. The darker the color, the higher the value. You can filter which regions to display in the table. When filters are used the two ranks are displayed: the one within the current filter set and the global rank.

This entry gives the total number of airports or airfields recognizable from the air. The runway(s) may be paved (concrete or asphalt surfaces) or unpaved (grass, earth, sand, or gravel surfaces) and may include closed or abandoned installations. Airports or airfields that are no longer recognizable (overgrown, no facilities, etc.) are not included. Note that not all airports have accommodations for refueling, maintenance, or air traffic control.
