Types of Airports
- Commercial service airports serve the big national and international airlines. Planes from all over the world take off and land there.
- General aviation airports are smaller airports that handle private, business and charter planes as well as planes that carry people to and from bigger airports.
- Military airfields are operated by the army and sometimes share space with other airports.
