NRT Airport is definitely one of the most scenic airport landings in the world!
The flight from Narita Airport offers amazing views of Mt Fuji, and also the Pacific Ocean if you are flying from the south.
Although I was a bit disappointed as we were flying from the North, but even so, you still get some great views of Tokyo City. I’ve included some pictures below for you to enjoy!
To be honest, the only reason I created this blog was to tell you about the most beautiful airport landings in the world.
The views from above are sometimes so incredible that it is worth flying hundreds of thousands of miles just for them.
The airport landing is the beginning of your adventure! It gives you a taste of what’s ahead and makes you want to experience as much as you can during your stay.
I hope that this blog will make you want to experience these views for yourself one day!
I’ve been flying since I was a teenager, and the window seat has always been my favorite. On long-haul flights, I love to sit back and watch the world fade away beneath me as the plane climbs higher into the sky. But my favorite part of any flight is getting ready to land at a new airport.
I have a bucket list of airports that I want to fly into – some are super famous like LAX and JFK, while others are small airports in remote places with gorgeous approaches like Barra Airport in Scotland or Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport on Saba Island in the Caribbean.
I decided to start this blog after a recent vacation to Norway, where I flew into several new airports and had a chance to take some fantastic photos of the landscape below. If you like traveling as much as I do, then this blog is for you!
The airport is located right on the coast, so planes have to fly low over the water just before landing. The views over the ocean are breathtaking and especially when flying in from the east, Mount Fuji is visible in the distance.
The world’s largest airport is located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. It has a staggering six runways and an average of around 2,500 flights per day. Despite being one of the busiest airports in the world, it only has one terminal building.
The airport handles over 6 million passengers each year and is a hub for Icelandair. The location makes for some spectacular views as you head into Reykjavik with snow-covered mountains on one side and open sea on the other.
The airport is located on an island at the mouth of a fjord in southwestern Norway. It has both domestic and international routes including to Copenhagen in Denmark, Amsterdam in The Netherlands and Frankfurt in Germany.
The mountainous landscape of New Zealand provides a great setting for some scenic approaches. Queenstown Airport is often ranked as one of the most beautiful airports in the world due to its location right next to Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range.
Located near Venice, this airport handles around 7 million passengers every year
The airport in the town of Saint-Pierre on the French overseas collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world. The airport is located on an island, and it has a very short runway that ends abruptly at the shoreline.
The airport is served by Air Saint-Pierre, a regional airline based in Saint-Pierre, with scheduled passenger service to Miquelon and Canada (St. John’s and Halifax). In addition, there are numerous charter flights from Canadian cities during the summer tourist season as well as from Montréal for medical evacuations.
The aircraft used are DHC-6 Twin Otters, Beechcraft 1900s and DeHavilland Dash 8s.
