Every airport in the world is different in a number of ways. Apart from being transit points, airports have their own appeal. Here are top coolest airports in the world. Check photos below!

When we get aboard flights to our destinations, all we are usually thinking is how pleasant our trip will be. Whether we will land safely. The people we shall see.. All these run through our minds from the second we think of the journey to the point the plane tires hit the tarmac.

Airports are a symbolic part of every country. They are gateways to cities, countries, entire cultures and the first thing you encounter when you arrive in any nation.
