Airports serving domestic flights only are known as domestic airports.
Domestic flights are generally cheaper and shorter than most international flights. Some international flights may be cheaper than domestic ones due to the short distance between the pair of cities in different countries, and also because domestic flights might, in smaller countries, mainly be used by high paying business travellers, while leisure travellers use road or rail domestically.
Some smaller countries, like Singapore have no scheduled domestic flights. Domestic flights are the only sector of aviation not exhibiting a global long term growth trend due to many smaller countries increasingly replacing short domestic routes with high speed rail, that said, most of the busiest air routes in the world are domestic flights.
