Halloween Poll Reveals World’s Scariest Sounding Airports
Unless you usually fly by broomstick, there are some airports that may give people a fright this week.
The world’s top ten scariest sounding airports have been revealed in a poll by London City Airport.
While London’s airports aren’t likely to give you nightmares – Heathrow is LHR, Gatwick is LGW and London City is LCY – there are many with far more sinister sounding codes.
1) DIE – Arrachart, Madagascar
2) BOO – Bodø, Norway
3) AXE – Xanxerê, Brazil
4) HEL – Helsinki Vantaa, Finland
5) KIL – Kilwa, Congo
6) SIN – Singapore Changi International, Singapore
7) DED – Dehradun, India
8) GUT – Gütersloh, Germany
9) AGH – Ängelholm-Helsingborg, Sweden
10) BAT – Chafei Amsei, Brazil
Declan Collier, Chief Executive of London City Airport said: “It’s amazing how many airport codes spell out blood-curdling words. On Halloween it would be rather appropriate to be flying to Juwata in Indonesia or Tremonton in the USA – TRK or TRT. However, I think most people reading the top ten will feel more like Roland Garros on Réunion Island or Carlton Hill in Australia – RUN and CRY.”
Airport codes are allocated by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
Top ten from survey of 50 people.
