An airport is a location where aircraft such as commercial and business jets, helicopters, and fixed-wing aircraft takeoff and land. An airport consists of at least one paved or flat runway surface for planes, a helipad, or designated water runways for takeoffs and landings.

Airports are large and small and are both domestic and international. The facilities include buildings such as control towers, hangars, and passenger terminals. Aircraft are stored and maintained at airports in hangars, or on the ground on ramps or aprons.
