So I waited a few game days to see if profitability was possible, and yes, it was, so I spent about £50k in doing a couple fo changes in the Terminal building and making the airport entrance and car park a bit prettier on the eyes.
Added a couple more car parks this time for long-term parking, and filled in a few gaps and edged the access roads with a flower border. Scattered a few trees outside of that and put in a couple of ‘Welcome’ flowerbeds at the start of the access road. We really need a few signboards in the game that we can put around, particualrly a ‘Welcome’ board for the entrance and a ‘Fly with us again’ board for those exiting the airport.

The main Terminal building.
The Check-in Area. I had to change a bit of the seating to a third security station as 95 PAX for a BAe-146 flight took a really long time to get through to original two. There’s a Cafe, but no shop. The PAX don’t like to shop before checking-in, I find - the small shop I tried in the area didn’t make its target.
The main Departure Lounge area. Gate seating, Cafe, Shop, Goose Wings Executive Lounge.
The Admin Offices.
Baggage handling system - with an airport this size, only one Ramp Agent per side is sufficient.
Airside… Gate 1 is GA, Gate 2 is the emergency stand, Gate 3 is Small Commercial and Gate 4 is Medium Commercial.
The as-yet unused Hangars.
The services area.
And, proof profits can be made with only two active Commercial stands and all services provided. I probably have a few more staff than I really need, so savings could be made there, and you really need to fill the two stands with flights. Goose Wings suddenly stopped scheduling Medium flights, so I signed up Strada Regional (they have Medium flights only) to take up the slack, now the flight schedule is full for the full seven days and I have flights awaiting scheduling…
Finally, the latest save is up on the Steam Workshop, here
