There are some countries which are the favourite of many travellers but lack even a single airport. People planning a trip to these nations have to search for an airport in a neighbouring country to book their flight tickets and then find some other means of transport to reach their destination. Here is a list of some of these countries.
Travellers to Vatican City have to land in Rome in Italy as there is no airport in the world’s smallest country. Vatican City is 30 km away from the Lionardo da Vinci Fiumicino Airport in Rome.
Another nation that has no airport is San Marino, the fifth smallest country in the world. The nearest airport is Frederico Fellini Airport in Italy which is a 30-minute drive away. The distance is 21 km.
A scenic country sharing its borders with Spain and Italy, Andorra has the highest capital in Europe, Vella. Tourists to Andorra have to choose from among five airports in Spain and Italy to reach their destination. All these airports are a three-hour drive away from picturesque Andorra.
Yet another popular travel destination which has no airport is Monaco. While sharing boundaries with France on three sides, there is the Mediterranean Sea on the fourth side of Monaco. A trip to Monaco involves landing in a flight at Cote d'Azur Airport at Nice in France and a half-an-hour drive.
A tiny nation which has Switzerland on the west and Austria on the east, Lichtenstein is the world's smallest country where German is spoken. The nearest airport to this European country is St Gallen-Altenrhein in Switzerland. From the airport, travellers can take a car or boat to Lichtenstein. The country is also connected to the Swiss and Austrian railways.
