What Is An International Airport

Basically, an airport is regarded as an international airport if it has the facilities to offer and accept International flights to and from other countries. These facilities usually include longer runways to accommodate the take off and landing of larger commercial aircrafts and also have Customs and immigration procedures in place.

International flights are usually undertaken by larger aircrafts and some of the smaller airports that do not have the facilities such as long runways, simply cannot accept these flights. Some of the smaller airports in Spain only have the facilities to accept smaller aircrafts and as a result only receive Domestic flights. Domestic flights are simply flights that are within the same country.

International flights are flights that depart from one country and land in a different country. This means that all the International airports in Spain receive flights from different countries around the world. Many of the International airports in Spain receive both Chartered and Scheduled flights from a wide number of different countries throughout the world..

The larger International airports in Spain will generally have a better choice of flights and airlines to choose from when you are searching for flights and will offer a more regular schedule of flights.

If you are searching for a flight to a specific destination or region in Spain, you may find that that destination or resort actually has its own airport that services the area. However, you may also find that when you try to find a flight to that particular airport, it is not possible to fly into the airport from your place of origin. This may be because that particular airport does not accept International flights or simply does not have an airline that flies into it from your country. If this is the case, you will need to choose one of the larger International airports close to the destination or resort of your choice.
