In ATB I opened up a hub at Newark, so I think this will possible in Jet Age, too.

Edit:
Tested and yes, it is possible to open a hub at Newark. Currently costs are 4.36 Million Dollar plus 40-50% increase of your overall staff costs.

Newark must just be under the top 20 busiest airport rating, as I see the airline at JFK has set up there with you.

EWR is the biggest US airport you can set up at before hitting the top 20.


Since the new hub system, it has greatly lost its value as a first choice for HQ because of the above  ;)

hi everyone.

i understand that the top 20 airports are out of the 2nd hub option. is it right!?
well if so, how can some1 explain me how can you open a 2nd hub in kwer!? i am not complaining or moaning, just seeking clarification. in ja2 im based in newark, when you look at the aiports list, kewr is in the top 10, even though, if some1 wants, they can still open a 2nd base there. the reason of this comment is very simple, i ha decided to create a regional airline, newark would be a good place to start, dealing only with the players that started there as a 1st base. considering that the top 20 hubs would be out of reach of the sharks, newark would be a good option. i have a competitor there that, arrived and swooped all the slots...me being a small regional carrier forget it.
my query is, how come you start a 2nd hub in newark if it is in the top 10 airports!?

thanks

It places 19 in the list in MT2 and ATB.  My guess is that it's a hard coded list of airports, and it's the 20 largest airports in the database.  However, not all 20 of those are open at the same time.

CDG and DFW aren't open in Jet Age yet for example.  Also later on you've got the replacement of Stapleton in Denver, Kai Tak in Hong Kong, and Don Muang in Bangkok.

It says you currently control 883 slots(35.92%). While your closest competitor controls 364 Slots(14%). I don't think he "swooped all the slots" from ya.

If all the slots are gone in an airport, then you need to open a base at another airport.

I saw this just because of your quote  ;D

You mean your "small regional" airline that flys over the Atlantic to Europe? And competes with me at the route Los Angeles <-> Newark?  ;D

Ok ok, serious. I'm running a very small regional airline, too!  ;)
