Proposal

This proposal brings commercial passenger aviation into the public transport schema.

Rationale

The public transport schema should cover all possible kinds of public transport, but there is currently no mention of aviation (e.g. plane and helicopter) as kind of public transport.

Examples

The plane service between Hong Kong and Vancouver can be tagged with route=plane, and the helicopter service between Hong Kong and Macau can be tagged with route=helicopter

Tagging
