That is the only correct answer, so it should be accepted.

Why not "в аэропорте"?

It is an exception. There are some very few masculine nouns that, as an exception to the general "е" ending, use a "у" ending with "на" and "в". Some are taught in the lesson. See the tips and notes of the lesson "Around you".

Notice that most of these exceptions are monosyllabic, like "порт", and аэропорт "inherited" the already existing "порт" exception.

Yes, I should pay more attention to the Tips & Notes. After I got this wrong, I looked back and found that Мы в аэропорту is an example in this module's T&N.

Wade's A Comprehensive Russian Grammar has a list (not complete) of common words declined according to this pattern. At least 40% of the words on the list are in this Duolingo course.

❤❤❤❤ this language, already 200+ declension endings to learn, and when you learn them they still don't work

О is curiously pronounced as а in stressed positions in rapid speech in many of the words here.

Neither of the «о»'s are stressed in this phrase: «в аэропорту́».

Then it’s wrong in isolation.

Neither of them sound stressed to me, though the exercise I'm in doesn't allow me to slow it down.

This course has so problems with in/at, if I may say. I never see "at" in the answers, but it's enormously used in English (i.e. being "in the park" in Duolingo should really be "at the park").

Please correct the stress! It is compulsorily here on the last vowel . It is a special form of locative with на /в.
