Hi all,

As said, no need to draw paths as way in OSM : they can be drawed by any
customized render engine when start and stop point are known.
+1 to make relation with airports as only members.

I respectably disagree : how would a routing engine do to route pedestrian
on roads where only motor vehicle speed/travel time is known ?
Speed and so time depend on the aircraft you use to go down a specific
geographic path.

This data should not be added to OSM.
It is a routing engine parameter actually.

All the best
