The attribute panel for an airport looks like this:
Follow these rules when adding attributes to airports:
- 184.108.40.206.1 Item type
Note. If the airport is under construction and isn't yet open for flights, the final decision about its type (international or local) is made after it opens.
International Airport — an airport that meets one or more of the following conditions:
- The airport conducts regular international flights.
- The airport's official name contains the word “International”.
- The airport's international status is confirmed by aviation authorities, both local and international.
Local airport — any airport that conducts regular flights or has facilities for receiving regular passenger flights (a passenger terminal and a plane terminal).
Airfield — other landing sites that don't have regular passenger service or facilities for receiving regular passenger flights.
When entering the item type, you must observe the mapping rules concerning items that are forbidden to draw on YME.
- 220.127.116.11.2 Name
Follow these rules when naming items:
- You should enter the item type in official and caption names. For example: Vnukovo Airport.Important. Don't edit the “For caption on map” name for airports.
- You should enter the item type in official names of airfields, landing strips, and helicopter pads. For example: Yermolino Airfield. You must enter the names of airfields, landing strips, and helicopter pads in the “For caption on map” field. You should not, however, enter the item types there. For example: Ermolino.Important. Only enter the “For caption on map” name without the type for Russian names. As an exception, indicate the item type if it can't be separated from the name. For example: Chkalov Airfield, Red Airdrome. Pay particular attention to the names of items located in ex-USSR countries.
- You can enter the ICAO and IATA codes as synonymous names. Latin codes are entered as English names, and Cyrillic codes are entered as names in the local Cyrillic language.
- Only use the word “International” in the name if it's widespread and widely used (for example, on signs or on the official website).Note. Examples:
1. In the USA and some other English-speaking countries, using the word “International” in airport names is a well-established practice. This can be applied to English names, while the names in other languages won't include the word.
2. If the word “International” is used on the official website and/or on the airport building, you can include it in the item's name in Yandex Map Editor. This rule also applies only to local languages.
In most other cases, the word is already used in the item's type (“International airport”) and shouldn't be duplicated.
- When entering names in local languages, follow the name format used in the corresponding country. Additions to airport names also need to take into account local nuances.
Airports named after somebody should have “named after” in lower case in their official Russian name. For example: Airport named after Heydar Aliyev, Airport named after John F. Kennedy.
In “For caption on map” types the “named after” postscript is not added. For example: Heydar Aliyev Airport, John F. Kennedy Airport.
- 18.104.22.168.3. Address

You can enter website addresses with or without the “http://” part.
You can enter the following in the “Site” field:
- Address of map item's official site
- Address of unofficial map item site (if there is an official site, then enter the unofficial site after it)
- Link to a reliable article about the item (for example, in Wikipedia)

In the “Site” field, you should not enter the item author's address or any other addresses that do not relate to the item itself.
