Top 15 Most Dangerous Airports in the World!

The chances of dying due to an airline crash? They’re pretty low—about 1 in 20 million. You have a much higher chance of sitting next to a crying infant for an entire flight. But that still doesn’t stop flying from being one of the most common phobias in the world. The takeoff, the turbulence, bad weather—it can be pretty jarring. While you’re generally pretty safe by choosing air travel, you might want to be a little extra cautious and avoid the following airports that have continuously shown to be the most dangerous in the world.

15. Princess Juliana International Airport, St. Maarten

This airport was built for smaller planes to land on, but it is still used by 747s and A340s. It also doesn’t help that it’s one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean and located right next to the beach–literally. If you’re on the beach, it’s not uncommon to be knocked down by force winds of the landing plane going past.

14.Toncontín International Airport, Honduras

The airport is surrounded by mountains, making it so that pilots have to fly a very specific path to avoid mountain tops on their way to the ground. But what’s scarier is that right before touchdown, the pilot has to bank towards the left at a 45 degree angle in order to make it down safe. Any hesitation or wrong move can quickly turn this touchdown into a breakdown.
