The island of Maui has a population of less than 150,000, yet there are three airports on the island! I suppose living on an island would mean a lot more trips by air. This route recently received an upgauge from WestJet, now being served on a Boeing 767 aircraft.

WestJet began flying between Edmonton and London Gatwick in May, 2016. In 2015, Gatwick Airport became the first single runway airport to handle more than 40 million passengers annually.

EIA has two airlines that offer service to Seattle: Delta Air Lines and Alaska Airlines. Many travellers from both ends of this route travel to watch their favourite sports teams in action. Unfortunately, you'd never be able to watch your hometown football team playing an away game, since the CFL and NFL don't mix. 

Visitors to Yellowknife, NWT can have two very different experiences depending on the time of year. Summers in Yellowknife are beautiful, and there are countless opportunities for fishing and other outdoor activities. The winter days are long and cold, but taking in the natural beauty of the region on a dogsled more than makes up for it. If you're out on Great Slave Lake in the summer (specifically Yellowknife Bay), chances are you'll float past a house boat; many people live right on the lake. What happens during the winter? Well, the house boats stay frozen in place, eagerly awaiting the summer thaw. 

Denver International Airport is the largest airport in the United States in terms of land area.

By the early fourth century, the Romans had built a road network of 53,000 miles throughout the empire. Each Roman mile was about 1,000 paces (about 4,800 feet) and was marked by a milestone. Hence the proverb "All roads lead to Rome."
