Gibraltar Airport

Gibraltar Airport Vacation Holidays Gibraltar is an independent territory of the United Kingdom, though Spain asserts a claim to the territory and seeks its return. On land, Gibraltar borders on the Spanish town of la Línea de la Concepción from which it is separated by a demilitarized zone where an artificial runway and a border crossing were built.

On the sandbar, there is an airport being the property of the local airlines, Gibraltar Airways, as well as an army barracks. The airport is especially worthy of note as it possesses an artificial runway 2 kilometres long, penetrating 1 kilometre deep into the Bay of Gibraltar.
