The Question:

Can you please tell me where the world's highest airport is located?

The Answer:

Tucked within the Himalayas, Tibet in the Republic of China has the two highest airfields in the world. Bangda airport in eastern Tibet, which lies 15,548 feet above sea level, was opened on Oct. 22, 1994. It relegated Lhasa airport (14,315 feet) in Tibet's capital to second place among the world's highest airports.
