Classical airports, other than Tempelhof?

Are there any airports built in somewhat classical architecture out there, except Tempelhof?

Since aviation took of at the end of classical architecture I suppose there aren't that many examples, but surely more than one?

The old Liverpool - Speke Airport is still standing, although it is a hotel the art deco tower and terminal is still there. They also allow an aviation club to restore aircraft behind on the old apron, google image Speke airport for pics.

The old Pulkovo terminal in Saint Petersburg is an example of classical architecture. And i suppose that many more similar soviet time terminals can be found around Russia and ex USSR countries.

The old terminal of Lviv airport (Ukraine) has a nice classical design. I don't think it's in use anymore though, recently a new terminal was built.
