Hint: whenever you just can't figure what the heck the audio is saying, it's most likely "ciudad". Thank you.
Good comment. Have a lingot.
Actually, NY has eight, London has six, and Paris has four. A number of cities worldwide have three, including Barcelona and Manila.
Depends how you count them. London has 12 airports, 5 of them are major, the rest are a mixture of commercial and private.
I've never really traveled much , but THE AMOUNT OF AIRPORTS IN NY SURPISES ME
Warsaw has two commercial airports and one military/government airport.
But not in one city alone, they're located in San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose respectively. One city having three is shocking to me since I have to currently drive 1.5 hours to get to the closest one to me lol
Yes, there are more airports, for smaller planes though.
Oh, my goodness, you're learning so many languages! How do you keep track of them all?
Sadly, I am stretched too thin, so I progress very slowly.
I have been taught that this kind of expression should be translated with an expression: something is/are/ lies somewhere -(there is/lies/stands XXX in/on/at... In this case : 'There are three airports in this city." Or: In this city there are..." By using the possessive 'to have' (tener) gives a faulty connotation that they somehow belongs to the city, are their property.

Is this remark about translation or about writing/grammar?
If it's about writing, I agree with you. It does give the connotation that the airports belong to the city, which maybe is purposeful. This connotation is not only in English, but also in Spanish. Saying There are three airports in this city = Hay tres aeropuertos en esta ciudad gives another connotation (i.e. it's more neutral and only states that the airports exist in the city) in both language. Therefore, the given translation is correct, because it has the same meaning and connotations.
