Base airports within empires
« on: August 07, 2010, 03:24:37 AM »
The numerous independence announcements prompt a question from me.

I have read the forum and the manual on this. If I understand the Latvia/Soviet Union example, then if you base your airline in Riga in 1970, you should be able to establish other bases throughout the USSR until the breakup.

What if one has an airport in the UK in 1965? Are they able to found other airports within the worldwide British possessions?

If not, why not?

These are British holdings as of that moment and the date they stopped being U.K. possessions...

You can. There is another thread in Jet Age forum about an airline in UK opening hub at Bahrain.

well I remember Hong Kong had its own system on traffic rights?

I've to say I'm not very sure about this
BOAC had operated a number of routes between Hong Kong and other Asia cities, but the major operator were BOAC owned Hong kong Airways and Swire owned CX
BA also operated HKG-TPE and PEK services in 80s

Yes Hong Kong is special case, same with Macau (Portuguese). They have their own rights and ruled by their own leader even though they are considered as oversea territory of UK and Portuguese. I think there were other territories with similar condition out there.
