Czechoslovakia question
« on: December 13, 2018, 10:50:03 PM »
Hi - could anyone please advise as to what happens to one of my alliance colleagues who is based in Prague in GW4 Czechoslovakia (it's 1984) He'd like to open at a base which we know will become Slovakia whilst Prague becomes Czech Rep.  Would he be closed down at any base which becomes Slovakian territory?

Czechoslovakia splits in 1989, but from 1991 the open skies allows ut to open base in both of the two Czechoslovakian cities. I don't exaclty know what will happen in '89  :-\

I am assuming it goes by you HQ.  If your HQ is in Czech Republic, you will become a Czech airline, and will lose your Slovak bases, but you can then re-open them 2 years later...

I am not sure if there was any grandfathering clause in real life, but I am pretty sure there is nothing special program in AWS.

Thanks APT and JS ... we're hoping the friendliness of the separation was reflected in not being forced to lose any bases... I guess we need Sami to answer this one for certain.

Yup, as they say Czechoslovakia had a Velvet divorce after the Velvet revolution.

IIRC, USSR and Cz-Slo (also maybe Yugoslavia) are special, as you're not obliged to close your bases after the usual 2 year grace period.
I verified it at least in the case of former-Soviet non-Russian airlines keeping bases inside Russia deep into the 90s before going BK for non-base reasons in current GW#2.

If you don't get a warning when opening the base then you're probably in the clear as that warning was implemented after someone on Algiers got a nasty surprise...

Thanks also Arthur and schro

It all adds up to... we "think" that there is no enforced closure of bases and we're probably 95% certain of this. I'd love to hear from Sami that it is 100% correct.

I was wondering about this sort of thing in general, since at the game start dates for many of the worlds (1950-1955), the number of countries on the map are a hair different from now.  On the one hand, the idea of getting thrown out of Africa is annoying...on the other hand, I can imagine it was at the time as well;-)

Of course, now I'm wondering when Rhodesia ceases to be considered part of the UK (i.e. at the UDI in 1965 or after Lancaster House in 1979/1980) since (without checking demand models) Harare/Salisbury would seem to be not-a-horrid-base for running a bunch of local flights within Africa if one is going to get "maxed out" within the UK vis-a-vis competition.
