No more regularly-scheduled service to Turnhout and Hoogstraten?

It doesn't say "international" airport though. It just says airport...

Exactly. It used to say "international," Chris says.

"Deze naamswijziging is onderdeel van de verzakelijking van het vliegveld"

Verzakelijking? Would that be a "reorientation towards business"?

I didn't even know this 'airport' existed. It's a small general aviation airfield with a paved runway, unsuitable for jet airplanes.

Did the airport icon change? I thought the airplane was always on its side, like here and like here.

Generally, the airport icon points in the direction to follow. In your examples, you have to turn right to go to the airport, so the airplane is pointing to the right. If you have to continue ahead, the airplane points up.

At least, that's the general idea, but I don't know how widely this guideline is followed in the Netherlands.

I am always amused by "international" airports without any international connections... even a big one like Norfolk VA I just wanted to go to Canada, the closest foreign country, nope you gotta fly to Philly first (terminal 5! )

This country's chock full of them, but I always take it at face value and assume it means there are customs-and-immigration facilities. I once had to pick up someone at Hartford-Bradley (in Connecticut) coming from Washington, and passed an Air Ontario counter, so "Bradley International" is, or was, actually justified.

It's way OT but I was hoping you'd pick on "Terminal 5", I just remember landing at Terminal A late with a connection that was to take off literally in 10 minutes after I got out of the jetway... I'm just running down the corridors hearing only the zinnng of the little wheels on my bag, TB, TC, TD, TE I get to Terminal F, it's just a door to the runway... you have to wait for a bus... that drives way on the other side of the runway between planes taking off and landing... I'm sure they heard my "kurrrrrwwwa" all the way in Conshohocken

still made the flight though, last person on board

(edit for letters...)

That's probably not a bad idea given the human subconscious.

There's a rule that you cannot have the airplane pointing down-right, down, or down-left in the UK (for obvious reasons) even if the arrow on the sign is that direction (which would be very rare).

It would never occur to me that the direction the plane is pointing would indicate which direction you're supposed to turn. For "Airport, turn right," I'd just expect an airport symbol and an actual arrow pointing right.

The airplane direction does not replace the arrow. It just compliments it.

I don't see any arrow on that sign you posted, though.

Do we interpret that as "Breda Airport, take A58 to exit 21"?

Yes. It tells you the route to follow.

Behind this sign there is a sign directing you to the A58, which is only 1300 meters from here (http://goo.gl/maps/51pHn)
