Kunming New Airport
« on: October 30, 2010, 10:43:34 PM »
I am from Kunming, China.

Kunming is building China's 4th largest airport.  It is called Xiaoshao International Airport.  The airport code will be KXIA.  All operations will be transferred to the new airport by January 1, 2012.  The old airport (Wujiaba) will be demolished.

Here is more information:

Sami, please consider adding this airport to Modern Times 3 in 2012 (game time).

The pictures were scaled to only show the buildings. Some apron was visible on the side, and runways were left outside the pictures.

Here is an article where you can see more pictures.  The airport will have 4 runways, 1 of which is capable of landing the A380, the other 3 are capable of landing the Boeing 747.

I gave Sami all the details on Kunming airport a few months back as a bug request, and this was accepted.
