Gibraltar Airport, also known as North Front Airport, is located on the Rock of Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory bordering southern Spain.

Gibraltar Airport is understood to be the only operating airport with a main road running across its runway. Traffic has to be stopped on the road by barriers and traffic lights each time an aircraft has to land or take off from the runway. Tourists tend to be quite fascinated by the spectacle!

Owned by the Ministry of Defence, Gibraltar Airport was originally constructed during World War II and opened in 1939 as an emergency airport base for the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm. The RAF control tower is still used by the airport, which now operates for both commercial and active-military flights.
