I don't have a clue and I cannot be bothere to check all the 150 airports I have been to which is the oldest and which not Big grin

But I guess the new airport in BKK (VTBS) is the newest I have been. Just been there this week and I guess this is pretty new...

I suppose it depends how you are defining it; the age of the terminal buildings, or the time when the loation was first used as an airfield?

I really don't have time to look up the oldest by either definition, but I'd say the newest I have been to is probably HKG for airfield site, and for terminal buildings it would be ORK.

The newest for me has to be DEN.

I'd have to do some more research to figure out the oldest, but my guess is it's probably EWR.

The newest;

Oldest;

Icarus was the first to fly, therefore the place he made his maiden voyage would be the oldest airport I've been to.

I'll have to guess my newest airport is DFW which opened in the 1970s.

No idea on the oldest...several airports I've flown through have had operations since the 1920s.

I suppose my "native" hometown airport of Dublin might be the oldest I've used as your question is for from the location was used as an "airfield". The site of today's DUB (Collinstown" was originally a British military based used during WW1, yet from 1922 use of the airfield ended in 1922. When the Irish government set up Aer Lingus in 1936 it initially used the military facilities of Casemont aerodrome in Baldonnel (still used today), but the decided shortly after that a civil airport should be built to serve Dublin and they selected the Collinstown military airfield. Construction of the new airport started in 1936 yet the ainaugural flight didn't take place place until January 19 1940. So today's DUB is located on a pretty old airfield used during WW1 so as an airfield it's at least around 90 years old, yet it has only been used as a civil airport since 1940.


Long live Aer Lingus!

Newest: OSL (3 months after HKG, which in turn was opened 1 week after KUL)

Oldest: SYD (can't think of any older airport that I have been to)

Oslo would count as the oldest if you include military airport, as the first flight from the old Gardermoen air base was in 1912.
