A dream about being at an airport often signifies transitions, journey, and expectations. It can be more nuanced than that though.

It may indicate you're about to embark on a new phase or project in your life. Watching planes take off suggests you're launching new ideas or goals, while seeing them land can symbolize the completion of a project or phase. These dreams reflect your feelings about the changes and progress in your life.

An airport is rich and colorful dream symbol to get one's head around. To say for certain, I'd have to understand the dreamer's life and mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of being at an airport, in the Freudian context, can be seen as a manifestation of one's unconscious anticipation of significant life changes, akin to the ego's preparation for a psychic journey.

The dream-symbol can have many permutations however. The airport, a liminal space, symbolizes the threshold between the familiar and the unknown. Observing planes take off may represent the id's desire for liberation and the superego's aspirations taking flight. Conversely, watching them land could be interpreted as the resolution of internal conflicts, the return of the repressed, or the culmination of a psychosexual stage. These dreams, therefore, are a reflection of the dynamic interplay between the conscious and unconscious mind in navigating life's transitions.0

Dreaming about being at an airport or watching planes take off and land can be seen as a spiritual message from the universe. Airports are gateways, symbolizing spiritual transitions and the start of a new spiritual journey. Watching planes take off may indicate that your spirit is ready to ascend to a higher level of consciousness or embark on a spiritual quest. On the other hand, seeing planes land can signify the return of your spirit from a spiritual journey, indicating a time of reflection and integration of spiritual lessons. These dreams are a divine reminder of your spiritual growth and evolution, urging you to embrace change and trust the journey.
