There is no public transportation that we can consider as safe, we are basically surrounded by danger in any vehicle we decide to ride, but if we have to compare, then air travel would basically be the safest, minus the exceptions.
If you paid attention, you would notice that most dangerous airports make money out of scaring passengers.
It is still a mystery understanding how some of their runaways were built or how architects were brave enough to make a dangerous place the location of a landing plane.
In fact, Japan is ready to open a temporary runaway to handle the traffic in the 2020 Summer Olympics in the Narita National Airport… It is the definition of scary, and yet, people will still fly there from all over the world.
However, it still can’t be compared to some airports around the world that have made many people’s hearts shiver from fear, so if you are interested to know more, don’t hesitate to follow me into the next page.
Scotland: Barra Airport
This Scottish airport is the only one with a beach runaway that’s used only for scheduled flights. It is located on the Barra Island, so basically, the runaway wouldn’t be used until the tide is out; the location has an elevation of 5 ft above sea level only.
The airports have three runaways and they are all operating at high tide because they are underwater.
All the flights are operated by the British Airways, and they are not allowed to land on anytime to avoid any “drowning” situation, and to make it more dangerous, the plane would depend only on the lights of vehicles during the night when it is trying to land.
Nepal: Lukla Airport
The pilots have the hardest mission when they try to land at Lukla airport because it is definitely one of the most dangerous ones in the world. They basically have to land a flying vehicle on a very short runaway that’s located between two large mountains. In fact, one of these mountains is Everest, so you know the deal.
