So here’s my first go at an airport. I’ve been playing Airport CEO since it was release and my airport has grown organically over time to:
8 small gates
20 GA stands
8 large gates
I’ve found having separate GA runways and taxiways great in avoiding delays. I also find having two runways (one for arrivals and one for departures) with entrance/exit taxi ways great as it’s essentially made a one way system for taxiing aircraft which avoids traffic delays on the ground. Creating pushback stands is good for this too.
I’m planning on starting again with a new design to make the airport run more efficiently - it’s a long way to for the passengers/staff to get from the main entrance to the gates/shops etc which delays flights. Also, locating service areas (eg: baggage handling, service trucks, staff rest areas and fuel) centrally might be of benefit.
Any good tips?
