Rules and regulations on airports are based on International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards set in Annexes 9 and 14. Airports do not fly, they are where they are and stay there, fixed and firm. And they are located within the territory of the state. At airports, aviation connects with the rest of the world. Both define runway specifications and conditions, navigation equipment for approach and landing, radar coverage of the air terminal and the surface of the airport, taxi-way layout, airport approach and runway lighting, and marks and signs on the runway-taxiways. Many airports in the world are subject to national legislation on aircraft noise and emissions. ICAO’s Annex 16 provides standards on measuring units and measuring methods, and specifies aircraft noise classifications. ICAO’s regulations ensure the maximum level of international standardization. ICAO also defines the border between international air law and national law at airports.
