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


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.


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
