25 Of The World’s Most Dangerous Airports To Avoid When Booking Your Next Flight
The fear of flying is one of the most common phobias people have, but there's really nothing to be afraid about. Sure, you're traveling at hundreds of miles per hour through the air, but you have a better chance of being struck by lightning than getting in a plane crash.
These airports, however, would make anyone afraid of flying. They all look like accidents waiting to happen!
1. Sandane Airport in Norway rests between beautiful mountains and fjords. It’s also known for incredibly strong winds during landing and takeoff, making it one of the scariest airports in Europe.
2. India’s Agatti Aerodome airport might look pleasant, but the runway is extremely close to the water. Even the best pilots have trouble landing there.
3. Tufi Airport in Papua New Guinea is pretty much just a short, dirt road. Imagine a 747 landing in that!
4. Bhutan’s Paro Airport is surrounded by the Himalayan mountains, which pilots have to navigate if they actually want to land.
