do slots increase over time
« on: April 27, 2009, 05:32:10 PM »

DMK (BKK to be accurate) has 23 a/c movements in jet age, and 33 in air boom. Is this modeled on real stats?

By the way does anybody know when the second runway was constructs? 21L/03R was lengthened to its current length in 1965, but I have no idea when the parallel runway was built.

This is how it ended up:

Two runways
Runway 21 R/03L - 3,700 meters long, 60 meters wide (12,139 feet/197 feet)
Runway 21 L/03R - 3,500 meters long, 45 meters wide (11,461 feet/147 feet)

Capacity: 60 flights per hour

Slots do increase over time.

But I'd say that roughly 95% of airports does not have real movements / hr data as that info is simply not available widely.. It's roughly calculated based on airport size.

new runways or their upgrades are not modeled as that data is also rather impossible to find. As if we'd introduce that feature then the data would have to be avlb for all airports as otherwise it would be unfair situation where players at airports with no data from history could enjoy the "today's runway" while others would have to suffer with the historically accurate shorter runways.
