Airport on the highway
Gibraltar Airport is a very unusual airport. Its only 500 meters from Gibraltar’s city center and has the distinction of being the closest airport to the city that it serves. “British Gibraltar has very little area, and the important airport runway takes up a major portion of land. To drive from Gibraltar to Spain, vehicles get across the runway.” Gibraltar Airport is one of the few Class A airports in the world and has a runway which actually intersects with a regular public road. When a plane has to take off or land, traffic is shut down.
