There is no airport in Andorra. The nearest airports are in Alt Urgell, Lérida, Barcelona, Toulouse and Gerona. By both population and by land area, Andorra is the largest country not to have an airport. However, there are three heliports.
The nearest airport to the Vatican City is Rome Ciampino Airport. It would be physically impossible to fit a whole airport into the 0.44 km2 land area of the Holy See, but there is a heliport in the western corner, which is used for visiting heads and officials of the city-state.
Saint Helena does not have an airport, but after many years of negotiation an airport project is now underway, due for completion in February 2016. In November 2011 a deal between the British government and South African company Basil Read was signed and the airport is proposed to open in 2016, with flights to and from South Africa.[note 2]
^Originally settled by Polynesian emigrants from surrounding island groups, the Tokelau Islands were made a British protectorate in 1889. They were transferred to New Zealand administration in 1925.
