The World’s Top 10 Most Beautiful Airport Approaches

The approach into these international destinations gives travellers scenic views from their windows…

In commercial aviation, you are either a window person or an aisle person (and nobody in their right mind is a center person). While aisle people prefer the convenience of easy escape and extra elbowroom, window people are dreamers, gazing at the clouds and the landscape far below from their 30,000-foot vantage. Coming in for a landing at the 10 airports below—which the aircraft-charter company PrivateFly and its panel of travel and aviation insiders have deemed to have the world’s most scenic approaches for 2016—affords travelers incredible views of the destination cities and surrounding area. For those who want the convenience of the aisle seat and the view of the window seat, fly private.
