takeoffs and landings

Gibraltar Airport, runway, Mediterranean Sea, etc. 'can't you see?'

Who Flies There:
Air Malta, British Airways, EasyJet, Iberia Airlines, and Monarch Airlines.

Difficult to maneuver, flanked on all sides by international (Spanish not British) airspace, and yet it would all be kosher if not for:

"The most challenging aspect... defies logic."
"They [tourists] think it's a car park. You have people in air traffic control saying 'you can't stop in the middle of the runway'."
