The longest marked, maintained runway I know of is one at Edwards Air Force base. It is 15000ft paved then another 6mi of dry lake bed. That makes for about 47000ft...

All of the above mentioned commercial airports are very long. I don't know of any that are longer.

JFK Int'l 13R-31L 14,572'
Johannesburg Int'l 21R-3L 14,495'
Madrid Barajas Int'l 18R-36L 14,272'

Like the base in California, I believe the paved strip at Cape Canaveral, Fla. is also 15,000', but of course is never used for commercial traffic.

The civil longest runway in the world in Upington, South Africa the runway 17/35 is 16,076' today.

The civil shortest runway ever land and take off on Boeing 737-200 jet in Dutch Harbour, Alaska is 3,900 ft!

I would like to know anyone who know about that the world smallest ramp parking for civil jet ever! Where is it at? I don't know about this yet! Thanks..

Does the nearly 5 mile runway in area 51 in Nevada count? This was confirmed by recently released commercial satelite photography.

LAS: Runway 7L/25R - Dimensions: 14510 x 150 ft. is pretty long too.
