Vatican City

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.


Liechtenstein

Currently, Liechtenstein only has a heliport in the southern town of Balzers. 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 services to Buchs and Sargans. From these towns, it is possible to catch a Postal Bus or a train to Liechtenstein.

Palestine

The Yasser Arafat Internation Airport was opened in  Gaza, Palistine in 1998. The airport, however ceased to exist in 2001 after being severly damaged by Israeli military forces. Its destruction left Gaza Airstrip as the only serviceable runway in Gaza. The closest public airport in the area is El Arish International Airport in Egypt.
