Now we've discussed the worst locations. Now who thinks their airport is ideally located?

PHX is great location, center of city, close to downtown and the attractions. Very good location in my opinion.

Dorval (YUL) is great, because he is very near to the city.

But th ebest is to me THX in Berlin. Incredible to land in the middle of the city !

BOS has to been one of the best for a quick trip to the city center although the layout of the airport roadways seem to be different each time I fly up there.

Denver is located pretty far from the city out in the open. It's could in the sense that the airport has a lot of land (2nd largest in the world) and allows a lot of expansion, but it takes a while to get to it, especially when traffic is bad.

One advantage however from it being way east, it allows planes to take-off directly west and clear the mountains in time. Something that wasn't possible with Stapleton.

People still complain about noise however...even though it is quite far.

Beirut is located just south of the city. On the divided highway, it takes 10-15 minutes from central Beirut when there is no traffic. So I'd say it is located in a very good location.

You can see the airport in the south of the city below here:

As far as proximity to the city center is concerned, I don't see how you could beat DCA. You can easily be downtown in 5 minutes if traffic on the 14th Street Bridge isn't bad.

If you're a tourist, LAS also has a great location right near the Strip.

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

DCA is great. Within minutes of getting off the plane, you could be on a short Metro ride to the center of the city. I cannot think of many airports closer to the center of the action than Washington National.

San Diego (SAN) also has a great location near downtown.

SAN is great in some aspects, terrible in others.

Close to the city, but, no room to expand.

Rio de Janeiro - Santos Dummont.

Its purpose its to serve the business traveler, mainly through the Rio-Sao Paulo shuttle. The airport is right in Downtown Rio, you cross the street and you're there.

The best "location for its purpose" airport in the world.
