Intercontinental is flying between continents - can't think of any countries that span continents, so they are also International - For example US-UK is intercontinental (and also international)

International flights are flights across national borders (which may or may not be on different continents). US-Canada is international (but not intercontinental)

Hope that helps

Avion,
I know Australia spans A continent (notice the lack of the plural version of the word) - what I was saying was I don't know and than spans (multiple) continents (notice the plural)

Russia is spanning two continents (Europe, Asia), so there could be an intercontinental airport in this country, which isn't international.

IAH considers itself intercontinental, yet is has flights to Netherlands, UK, Canada, Mexico, and a bunch of other countries.

Istanbuls public bus system probably considers itself intercontinental.
