I think it takes time for hungarians to use the new name of the international airport in Hungary, "BUD" FERIHEGY, now Liszt Ferenc.

How many airports are really binational (you can enter either from one country or other country and only one control)?

How many could be? (less than 10 km and really traffic, not just an airport without regular flights for instance)

Gibraltar was supposed to be binational, wasn't it? I seem to recall that the Spanish didn't bother to build the infrastructure in La Linea to support the binational character of the airport, so all passengers had to depart from Gibraltar regardless.

I think you have to pass customs control entering Mexico and entering USA though, just that the control is inside...

Well yeah I don't think there is an airport that has different immigration rules, the one between Switzerland/France is that way because of Schengen, right?

There were different rules before Swiss accession to Schengen, but as far as I know, the option to enter either Switzerland or France no longer exists - either you fly on a domestic French flight to Geneva (French sector), or you must pass Swiss immigration controls (or simply exit to Switzerland in the case of Schengen flights).

I'm not sure if the ability to choose the destination (France/Switzerland) still exists for the purposes of Customs controls.

Does anyone know if the French/Swiss are bothering to even control the landside border crossing within the airport anymore?

They did, indeed. There is a thread with a lot of pictures about it.
Nevertheless... only a Madrid-Gibraltar flighted for two years. The railway concurrence in the area due to the high speed network is important and crisis made a decrease passengers number.
Thus... it is a binational airport with a terminal that would let a passenger coming from Spain going to La Linea without any control but... no flights over.




Anywhere... cases as St. Martin airport, located in Netherlands but close to France

without any passport control


Irun

and someone else could be considered

The only border crossing between Brazil and Peru is very close to the tripoint with Bolivia. However you cannot cross into Bolivia here, the closest border crossing is 50-60km south.

In South America there are many pairs of countries that border each other but don't have border crossings:
- Colombia - Panama
- Colombia - Brazil
- Colombia - Peru
- Venezuela - Guyana
- Suriname - Brazil
- Suriname - French Guyana (there's a ferry, however)
- Suriname - Guyana (there's a ferry, however)

Apart for Colombia-Panama and Venezuela-Guyana, the lack of border crossings isn't related to political issues but to harsh terrain and remoteness.

Do you have a link to that thread, please?

I thought the airport was missing the specific structures on the La Linea side, so the flights were effectively Gibraltar-Madrid rather than La Linea-Madrid?
