This template describes the preferred formatting to use when creating an article about huge airports that meet the criteria for a standalone article.

To quickly insert a complete blank airport template, copy the quick version into the edit box on the page you are editing. Another option is to simply type {{subst:airport}}, which will expand into the template after it's been saved.

Stuff in italics below is editorial comment, with suggestions for what should go in each section. You should plan on ruthlessly eliminating if you copy this code to a new airport article.


The first section of the airport article does not have a heading. This is a where you give a quick descriptive overview of the airport. Be sure to include some context so readers know where and what they are reading about. Links to the region that the airport is in can be useful here, too.
