Title: New Istanbul Airport
Post by: Thunderstruck on December 17, 2019, 02:18:41 pm
Greetings,

Here is a major city to please update in the game data: Istanbul.

Indeed, Atatürk Airport (ISL/LTBA) has ceased all scheduled commercial flights in April 2019.
Flights have since been transferred to the brand new "Istanbul Airport" (IST/LTFM).

The "IST" IATA code has been transferred to the new airport.

This should be, when totally completed, one of the world's largest airports : 6 or 8 runways and possibly up to 200 Million yearly passengers if extended to maximum capacity.

Cheers & all the best.

It's a huge improvement compared to the old airport, but I found it more difficult to navigate than the old one. And it feels soul-less

Anyway, when the new passenger numbers come out in 2020, then I will make the change in the database :)

That's the problem with massive airports. And the soul may take some time to grow...
I hope to be able to check it out soon, last time I landed in SAW, that was some ways away from Istanbul, a city that I love.
