micro airport demand
« on: June 20, 2010, 10:40:59 AM »
Tiny regional airports all over the world exist to serve passengers into the principal close-by hub.

Could the game be modelled that demand from tiny airports is focussed only on the closest-by hubs in the game.

i.e.  Finnish regional cities provide majority of demand only to HEL and ARN, as in reality.

+1, if it is not too hard for sami.

Also, maybe modeling EAS in for the US and similar programs elsewhere in the world?

If the exact amounts are hard to model, maybe make it $1000 per flight or so?

EAS?

Essential Air Service

Airlines get $1-2 million per year to serve certain tiny airports.  The airports included in the program had regular commercial service before deregulation, but now it is not feasible, so the govt has to step in.

How about making airports like planes- depending on demand they will open, close and grow?
In Montreal they went back to a smaller airport after they had a bigger one, because all the flights diverted to Toronto.
Can it be done in AWS?
It doesn't matter what the final judgement is of what to do- (I mean: There are multiple possible solutions for a situation)
the key thing is that the options regard the current situation.

e.g. If Montreal will be booming with flights they would leave the old airport.
If it would be a ghost town then they might keep it, or might tear it down- randomly.
