World's Most Beautiful Airports

Malvinas Argentinas Airport

Christian Kapteyn/Alamy

Malvinas Argentinas Airport, Ushuaia, Argentina

Located in Tierra del Fuego at the tip of South America, this is the world's southernmost international airport. Its beauty is largely a function of its natural setting—flights here come in low over the majestic Andes Mountains—and its role as a gateway to Patagonia and the Antarctic. But, while many remote airports are marred by ugly bunker-style terminals, the charming timber-framed main building here doesn't detract from the natural setting.

Beauty Mark: The airport sits directly on the Beagle Channel, named for the H.M.S. Beagle, the vessel that carried Charles Darwin to South America.
