If I want the name of a regular passenger airport and/or airport icon to appear, what tag do I use?

I've been using aeroway=aerodrome. Map features does not define aeroway=airport nor place=airport.

Personally, I think place=airport is a good idea.  Might be better though to stick with aeroway=aerodrome instead of aeroway=airport as it is both existing and, pedantically, perhaps is better inclusive of things like aero clubs and military establishments?
