Topics: Searching for airports | Using the map
The search box at the top right of every page is the easiest way to find an airport: just type in an airport code (like "LHR" or "KLAX") or an airport location (like "Cairo, Egypt") and OurAirports will show you the best candidates. You can also explore the site interactively by scrolling and zooming on the Big Map or drilling down by continent, country, and region, starting with The World.
