Something about trying to take a large piece of open ground, surrounded by infrastructure, and probably reinforced to the teeth due to it's importance to AD and Air Superiority; that would make not make it a target of opportunity for an airborne or air assault attack. Not unless you are willing to throw wave upon wave of pers and equipment at the problem.
Makes more sense to me to disable it with munitions and pick up the pieces as part of the rest of the offensive.
That suggests to me the notion of a frontal assault against the Rock of Gibraltar, or Severodonetsk. Why would you do it?
The world is full of commercial runways. Not all of them hard nodes. Why wouldn't you go where the enemy isn't?
