newbie question, but just started wondering if...

in your home town, do the road signs give the full name of the airport? or the abbreviated, three letter IATA code? here, the big green roadway signs say 'Kennedy Airport' and 'LaGuardia Airport', with the little signs on the side depicting a plane and 'JFK' or 'LGA'.

how does it work by you? would people understand where they were going if they saw a sign that said 'LHR' or 'FRA' on it?


What the FUTT?

The road signs here just say "Sky Harbor Airport" with the lil plane beside it.
Likewise Phoenix Deer Valley airport (KDVT) just says "Deer Valley Airport" on the road sign.

Here there's the little white plane and the words "Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA)" or "Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA)"

In Seoul, South Korea, signs for the Domestic Airport are listed as Kimpo airport, or at times, Gimpo Airport. There is some confusion in the translation between whether the name should be spelt with a "G" or "K". Of course, they also contain the airport name in Korean writing!

In Zurich the signs just say 'Flughafen' and the li'l plane next to it.
Flughafen just means Airport in german.

In Houston and Dallas, they have several small airport signs that say "IAH," "HOU," "DFW," and "DAL." When you get closer to the airport, however, the signs give the full airport names.


"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

Route 95 proudly displays "T. F. Green Airport" which has it's own exit right off the highway bringing you to the hassle free gateway to the northeast... (sorry for the plug, I couldn't resist).
