Airport" is a single by English power pop/new wave band The Motors. Released on 2 June 1978 by Virgin Records, the song reached number four on the UK Singles Chart. On 1 July 1978, the single was awarded a silver certification by the BPI in the UK for sales of over 250,000 units. It also reached number 19 in South Africa on 24 November 1978. The song was written by singer Andy McMaster in 1976. McMaster then switched from keyboards to bass for the band's first album.

The Motors were a British pub rock band, formed in London in 1977 by former Ducks Deluxe members Nick Garvey and Andy McMaster together with guitarist Rob Hendry (who was replaced in May 1977 by Bram Tchaikovsky) and drummer Ricky Slaughter Contents. In 1978, the band released "Airport" – which proved to be the band's biggest seller – and which peaked at number 4. The song was also a minor hit in the United States. The follow-up, "Forget About You", was released two months later. Following the release of The Motors' third album, 1980's Tenement Steps, which contained the minor chart hit "Love and Loneliness", Garvey and McMaster finally announced that they had dissolved the group.

This song is by The Motors and appears on the album Approved by the Motors (1978) and on the compilation Double Shot: New Wave (1999). So many destination faces going to so many placesWhere the weather is much betterAnd the food is so much cheaper. Well I help her with her baggage for her baggage is so heavyI hear the plane is ready by the gateway to take my love away. And I can't believe that she really wants to leave me and it's getting me so,It's getting me so.

In 1994, the band's career was reappraised with the worthwhile Airport: The Motors' Greatest Hits compilation featuring all the songs mentioned above as well as other hits, album tracks, and B-sides. A top-notch introduction to a band worth your while.
