Cincinnati: Airports We Love

Fodor’s web site has an article, Airports We Love (and Hate), and I thought for sure if CVG or Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport was to be listed it would be under hate for having such high airfares or for originally being the Cincinnati and being in Kentucky. But it was sandwiched between Amsterdam and Hong Kong on the LOVE list for the murals, which are pretty cool!

It’s worth traveling to Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport just to see the art collection. The huge mosaics of laborers were originally created by Winold Reiss for the Cincinnati Union Railway Station during the Great Depression and were moved to the airport in 1974. The murals are widely heralded as outstanding examples of art deco portraiture.

Also making the love list are Honolulu, Munich, San Francisco, Singapore, South Korea and Vancouver.

Hate list: Charles de Gaulle, Paris; Heathrow, London; LaGuardia and JFK, New York; Moscow Sheremetyevo, Russia; Mumbai International, Mumbai, India

    Several of those airports I have not been to, but I would add Chennai, India, to the hate list and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to the LOVE list! It’s one of, if not the, most beautiful airports in the world.
