(Redirected to Domestic airport article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A domestic airport is an airport which handles only domestic flights or flights within the same country. Domestic airports don't have customs and immigration facilities and are therefore incapable of handling flights to or from a foreign airport.

These airports normally have short runways which are sufficient to handle short/medium haul aircraft and regional air traffic.[citation needed] They have in many countries not had any security check / metal detector, but such checks have been added in recent years.

Most municipal airports in Canada and the United States are of this classification. At international airports in Canada, there are domestic terminals that handle flights within Canada (flying from one Canadian city to another).

Several small countries do not have any public domestic airports, or even public domestic flights, e.g. Belgium.
