Categories For Naming Airports

Mon Mar 07, 2005 2:11 pm

Hi People, yesterday I was daydreaming about the following:

What categories are airports named after? I know a minimum of two/three ad-hoc:

1. Famous people:

Like f.i.

Indira Gandhi Airport DEL
John F. Kennedy Airport JFK NYC

2. Areas

Rhein-Main Airport FRA
Changi Airport SIN

[3. Miscelleanous] - in this case probably regligion (could someone clarify)

Chhatrapati Shivaji Airport BOM

Does anyone have some more categories and can name some more examples?

I don't know where this would go (probably miscellaneous), but Newark Liberty International.

Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?
