Airspace are returned as features of a single layer called ‘airspaces’, with a geometry of type Polygon and the following fields: CLASS, NAME, FLOOR, CEILING.

Airspace geometries made of arcs will be tessellated. Styling information when present is returned at the feature level.

An extra layer called ‘labels’ will contain a feature for each label (AT element). There can be multiple AT records for a single airspace segment. The fields are the same as the ‘airspaces’ layer.
