For those who may not realize the importance of general aviation airports and the vital services they offer the local community and the entire country, recent events give good examples: Earlier this month, local newspapers wrote about officials inspecting freeze-damaged crops. One story read in part, "Following the three-hour tour, officials boarded a twin-engine plane at Camarillo Airport for the return flight to Sacramento." From Sacramento to Ventura County, do a job and return--all in a normal workday.

Seven of the country’s largest airports could take a cue from Thursday’s nationwide smoke-out and just quit –- instead of letting cigarette smokers light up inside their facilities and exposing travelers to secondhand smoke. That’s the tack taken by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a new study about airports and smoking policies released Friday. The study warns of the health dangers of secondhand smoke, which has been found to increase the risk of heart attacks, lung cancer, asthma attacks and other diseases.

I always read with great interest the Travel Section and I sincerely appreciate your reporting about Switzerland. I went through the article by Peter Greenberg about the ups and downs of airports. I could not find anything on Switzerland's two international airports, Zurich and Geneva. Please do not take my letter as criticism of the article. The fact that Switzerland's airports have not been mentioned means, in my opinion, that nothing negative had to be reported. L. RENGGLI consul general of Switzerland, Los Angeles

President Obama recently groused that no U.S. airport ranked among the world's top 25 airports. If you're a regular traveler to Los Angeles, you may be even more disappointed to learn that Los Angeles International Airport didn't even make the top 100. Obama was referring to a ranking released in April - the Skytrax World Airport Awards - that is based on a survey of 12.1 million travelers around the world. Out of 395 airports worldwide, LAX ranked 109th overall and 24th among 50 airports in North America.
