Don’t know why, but somehow I cannot build a nice airport when playing in Sandbox mode. I somehow must start small and grow step-by-step to focus on the details. Some days ago I started a new airport and just want to share some impressions how the airport actually develops.
After building a couple of GA and small commercial stands, I already added a longer runway and some medium commercial stands.
There is still a lot of grass, way too much if you ask me You can already see my “regional”-wing on the left side of the terminal building. The plan is to extend the terminal to the North with more medium stands that will also feature jetways.
Here you can see my check-in area on the right with some space for the baggage belts later on. On the left is my bus-boarding area. I have it as a dedicated area to ensure pax have enough space during the peak periods.
The medium stands for flights with a maximum of 120-130 passengers. Later on these stands will be reserved for aircraft up to the Embraer 190. For now, and in order to make enough money, yes I will need to put some 737-800 here as well with 160 passengers.
On the top you there are already some roads built for some more medium sized stands. On the right I will later build a terminal extension. The taxiway lines are so far apart that two aircraft of the size of an Airbus A320 or a Boeing 737 can taxi in parallel in both directions.
