The designation had more significance in the early days of aviation and varied by country. International generally means that there are customs and borders facilities at the airport. It does not necessarily mean there are international flights. Regional generally means flights to surrounding states, short trips to major airports. But again, it varies widely. There's no legal definition. A small airport in Iowa with no commercial air service could call itself Grassland International World Airport but that doesn't mean squat

An International airports MUST have at least one flight directly to another country. That does mean that they have to have immigration services for the people landing from that country. Regional airports don't have that.

Normally, it is the financing and has nothing to do with where planes arrive from/depart to. Regional airports are financed locally much like a hospital or school. International airports are financed by huge statewide bonds and often have federal assistance.

A regional Airport takes national traffic, ie- the planes that take off and land there are doing so from within the same country, so the airport doesn't have any 'Customs' or immigration control. International Airport deal with International traffic, and have Customs, immigration control.
