It may depend on the height of the airport above sea level or how close the hand off point is to the airport. From what I noticed, aircraft need to be at a certain height to be handed off. Two airports I noticed this at: Osaka Kan Sai, aircraft need to be at least 5000 feet to be handed off because the hand off points are very close to the airport, and Las Vegas due the height above sea level, but I forget what the minimum height requirement is for aircraft to be handed off their.
