I’m still on vacation, so it seemed like a great time to put another airport quiz up. I will be slower at approving any flagged comments and responding to any emails. I’ll be back as usual on Monday.
In January I put together a quiz to see how many domestic US airports you could identify by terminal silhouette. The feedback was great, so I’ve taken it international. Fair warning: this one is a lot harder.
Below, you’ll find 12 silhouettes of airports around the world. See how many you can get right, and talk about it in the comments.

You have already completed the quiz before. Hence you can not start it again.
