[-] New Kunming Airport: Demand Drop
« on: December 04, 2015, 02:14:00 AM »
Hi Sami,
In GW #1, I had a base at ZPPP. The airport recently closed, and my base naturally moved to the new airport, ZPPK. However, when this move happened, the airport suffered a significant drop in demand on many of my routes. I had only 46 aircraft there and still lost ~45K weekly passengers when the move happened. I now have oversupply warnings on 40 routes, some of which had demands drop from around 150, (I do not have exact figures on previous demands) to 50 daily pax.

As far as I understand, no other airport was opened around Kunming that would affect the demand. Does this mean that 45K people who previously came and went from Kunming changed there plans because a new airport built? The airport is just as large as the old one, and many demands remained the same, why did these fall? Can this be fixed?

Thanks, Sean

This happened at Kunming in the first long game world as well...the one that ended about a year ago or more.  Was it ever fixed in GW2?  If corrected, anyway, to make it stick to all the game world's?

I checked the airport details and all data is valid and it should have more demand. Most likely just the transfer calculation is not up to speed and it takes a while for the new airport demand to catch up. (should be instant but for some reason isn't)

Yeah, I've had something similar on routes to Ukraine after independence in GW4, demand not appearing for a couple of game months. Stays rock solid at 0 and then suddenly it appears.

Tested, everything normal:

Before transfer:
ZPPP - ZBAA: 830pax/day
ZPPP - ZBTJ: 52pax/day

After transfer (demand appears on 31-Dec-2011 @ 12.00, so 12 hrs after the transfer):
ZPPK - ZBAA: 1580pax/day
ZPPK - ZBTJ: 60pax/day

=> cannot replicate...
