Santiago de Cuba (SCU / MUCU) seems to be missing.

It's Cuba's second largest city and has a decent airport with a 4000m runway.

thanks

The old airport of Palmas, Brazil, is missing.

It was an airport which operated temporarily from shortly after the inauguration of the city - somewhere in 1991 - through the inauguration of the current Lysias Rodrigues Airport, in 2001.

I couldn't find detailed information about that aiport. I gathered some data with the help of Wikipedia and historical satellite images in Google Earth. According to these sources, the airport had the IATA designation as PMW and ICAO designation as SWPJ, operated "temporarily" in over 10 years and its runway was 1800 x 30 m, which was sufficient for large aircraft to operate.

Below there are 2 satellite images taken from Google Earth, showing the location of the airport with respect to the current one and the demonstration of the runway's dimensions. The airport coordinates were taken by myself with Google Earth and is of the point at the center of the runway:

I just noticed that some of the bigger airports in Iraq are missing. Excluding the one's that have been off-and-on closed due to conflict, the following airports were/are open at least in some of the latter stages of the game:

Erbil International: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erbil_International_Airport
Nasiriyah Airport: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Air_Base
Sulaimaniyah International: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulaimaniyah_International_Airport
Al Najaf International: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Najaf_International_Airport

A few more in the Horn of Africa countries might be worth adding. They're all serviced by the major East Africa airlines, and most opened in the 2000s or 2010s.

maybe something to think about:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Stanley_Airport      has absolutely no demand. what is the point of creating an airport without demand?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Mount_Pleasant      -mostly- replaces PSY in 86; is missing
