    Как правильно: в аэропорте или в аэропорту?

    Sorry if this has been asked before. Couldn't find the thread in the search.

    Wonder which is the correct form to say 'at the airport'? Following grammar rules, I think it should be 'в аэропорте', but I've seen it written 'в аэропорту'.

    Some words have two prepositional forms, one (with stressed -у) used with "в" and "на" and another one (unstressed -е) with other prepositions.
    В порту, в лесу, в снегу, but о порте, о лесе, о снеге.

    "Аэропорт" since it's derived from "порт" should use the same split prepositional, although I have heard and seen both variants.
    I often edit my posts five times or so, after I've sent them. Sorry for any confusion, feel free to correct me.

    It's a classical question. See this: http://www.gramota.ru/spravka/trudnosti/36_136
    Even natives do not know what is correct form.

    The question which I gave you the link is about the "в отпуске/в отпуску", but the "в аэропорту/в аэропорте" problem is discussed in the middle of text

    In short, they say that 40 years ago the correct variant was "в аэропорте", but people were so often making mistakes, that nowadays the correct form is "в аэропорту", and "в аэропорте" is considered obsolette.
