Terminals and Metro Stations

Hi! I’ve been building a second terminal for my airport. And apparently some pax taking flights at T1 came out of the T2 metro station when the terminal was still mostly under construction. The only connection between the terminals was the public road that went under the airport. So I guess the pax just spawn in a random metro station regardless of the terminal? I did include the metro station in the terminal area.

I don’t know if this is a bug, but I’ve had similar issues with other types of transportation as well. I find that I need to construct a footpath (even underground, or around the periphery of the airport), that somehow links all the different terminals. They can then be zoned as staff zones (if you don’t want passengers wandering around) afterwards. And to prevent those error messages popping up during construction, I plan for all those transport facilities, but construct them last.

I have it with Franchise staff too appearing at the wrong terminal and then error messages saying they can’t get to their task at the other terminal

I make sure there is at least a single tile wide path between terminals for staff and public, just in case. I had lots of passengers walking over to another terminal. I followed them and all of them went over to buy food, then came back to check in - so I built a food service in the terminal that didn’t have one (near check-in), and it stopped the long walk to another terminal for food.

That happens to me too, but that’s another issue I think.

I also have passengers crossing over to another terminal to sit on the sofa chairs rather than gate chairs, so now I’ve had to remove all gate seating from pre-security zones, and replace them with sofas, which are taking up so much space!

And while I understand some people do do this in real life, it gets really annoying when passengers cross the terminal to sit on comfy chairs, and end up delaying flights because they’re late to board. I mean, it’s fine to go a small distance to find a more comfortable chair, but going halfway across my map just so s/he can sit on an armchair?! I ended up removing all comfy chairs from the post-security areas…
