Airport Runway Around The World

An airport is a place where aircraft take off and land. An airport consists of at least one runway for a plane to take off and land, a helipad, or water for takeoffs and landings, and often includes buildings such as control towers, hangars and terminal buildings. Aircraft may be stored or maintained at an airport.

In Singapore, reclamation work began on the 103 hectares of tidal swamp in Kallang Basin in 1932. The reclamation and consolidation of land were completed, forming a 915-metre diameter, dome-shaped landing ground. On 12 June 1937, the Kallang Aerodrome was officially opened by Sir Shenton Thomas, Governor of the Straits Settlements. In 1955, Paya Lebar Airport opened and the Kallang Aerodrome was closed so after.
