Airports have their own unique place in our lives. From good-byes to reunions to the excitement of that long holiday. Here are five movies shot at  airports, which tap into these emotions that make us humans, Human.




This Leonardo Di Caprio’s magnum whopper is incomplete without the airport scene. A wanted man, he is unsure whether he would be allowed to pass through immigration or not. The tension in the scene is palpable with excellent background music adding to the anxiety.


Civil War


This Marvel’s magnum opus leads to an epic battle at the airport and let's face it, it’s a treat for the child in every one of us be it a comic book lover or not. We see all our superheroes albeit against each other and the airport scene with its gritty battle and witty humor didn’t disappoint.


The Terminal


Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks, this movie is the story of a man stuck at JFK terminal denied entry into the United States and unable to return to his native country due to a military coup. Shot entirely at the airport, this movie takes you through a series of human emotions in a well-captured journey.


Catch Me If You Can


Leonardo Di Caprio makes it to the list again with this cat and mouse game between Tom Hanks and him. It is a real life story based on Frank Abagnale. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the story is about a conman who poses as an airline pilot, a Georgia doctor, and a Louisiana parish prosecutor to perform check frauds of millions of dollars.
