    The world may be wrapped in a net of air routes, but there are still vast empty spaces between hubs. Whether tropical or freezing -- most are one or the other -- the world's most remote airports provide travelers with access to the previously inaccessible whether they are on an expedition to see the giant stone heads of Easter Island or the giant bears of Greenland.

    There are, of course, two ways to define the remoteness of airports -- their distance from civilization and their distance from the nearest airport. One must weigh both of these factors when measuring remoteness because, in the modern world, distance is often measured by inconvenience rather than mileage: It is easier to get from New York to Atlanta than from Baltimore to Stone Mountain.

    Does the St. Louis airport qualify yet? It's easy to get from St. Louis to a lot of places for a price but most go through Memphis, Chicago or Dallas.

    I'd say Pemba, Tanzania is one of the most remotest airports I've been to next to Avarua(Rarotonga) in the Cook Islands.
