The Mataveri Airport is possibly the smallest and most charming commercial airport I have been to. Only one commerical airline, Lan, make its way to and out of Easter Island and hence, navigating this airport is really easy. However, Mataveri is home to the second longest runway in the world. Why? Because the runway was built as an emergency landing strip for an US space shuttle. Sadly, no shuttle ever landed here and none ever will.
