Aerodromes

There are various categories of aerodrome in Switzerland. Their importance varies accordingly. While national airports provide connections to European and worldwide destinations and regional airports offer international and national connections, airfields are primarily intended for private flights and training.

The Sectoral Aviation Infrastructure Plan makes the distinction between the following categories of aerodrome:

  • National airports
  • Regional airports
  • Airfields
  • Military aerodromes with civilian usage
  • Heliports
  • Specially designated landing sites
  • Mountain landing site

English is not one of Switzerland's official languages. It can therefore be useful to check also in the German or French sitemap if you are looking for a specific subject.
