Lists by country[edit]

Due to the number of airports, each country or territory has a separate list:

Countries without airports[edit]

The five European microstates have no airport within their boundaries, though San Marino does have a small airfield with a grass runway. Each has at least one heliport and all except Monaco are landlocked.

Andorra[edit]

Andorra has no airports for fixed-wing aircraft,[1] but it has Andorra la Vella Heliport in the capital city of Andorra la Vella, as well as heliports in La Massana and Arinsal. The nearest airport is La Seu d'Urgell Airport in Spain, 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) south of the Andorran border, currently used for general aviation, but intended to be developed as a commercial airport and renamed Pirineus–Andorra Airport.[2] The nearest airports with scheduled commercial service are Carcassonne Airport and Perpignan-Rivesaltes Airport in France, and Lleida-Alguaire Airport in Spain. The nearest major airports are Barcelona-El Prat Airport and Girona-Costa Brava Airport in Spain, and Toulouse-Blagnac Airport in France, which all have transfers to Andorra by bus.[3][4]

Liechtenstein[edit]

Liechtenstein does not have an airport, but does have a heliport in the southern town of Balzers.[5][6] The nearest international airports are St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport in Switzerland and Friedrichshafen Airport in Germany, which have few scheduled flights. The nearest major airport is Zurich Airport in Switzerland, which has rail service to Buchs and Sargans.[7] From these towns, it is possible to catch a Postal Bus[7] or a train to Liechtenstein.

Monaco[edit]

Monaco has no airports, but does have Monaco Heliport in the Monégasque district of Fontvieille.[8] The nearest airport is Nice Côte d'Azur Airport in France.[9]

San Marino[edit]

San Marino does not have a commercial airport,[10] but does have a small airfield in Torraccia with a 680-metre (2,230-foot) grass runway owned by the AeroClub San Marino.[11] There is also a heliport in Borgo Maggiore. The nearest airport is Rimini's Federico Fellini Airport in Italy, with transfers available by bus to San Marino.

Vatican City[edit]

Vatican City has no airport and is too small to contain one; the Holy See has a land area of 0.44 km2 (0.17 sq mi).[12] However, it does have Vatican City Heliport in the western corner, which is used for visiting heads and officials of the city-state.[13] The nearest airport is Rome Ciampino Airport in Italy.
