Welcome back to the fine city of Baychester. In this update, we will move outside of city limits to see the international airport.

BIA or Baychester International Airport is a relatively small airport not because the city is irrelevant, but because of the government's backwardness earlier in the twentieth century. This led to the development of major airports in cities close by to Baychester, Logan international in Boston and both JFK and LaGuardia in NY.

However, airline traffic has been steadily increasing, prompting a major overhaul in 1997 which was finally completed in 2007 that rebuilt and added new terminals and an extra runway.

Here are the long and short term lots for the airport.

Just a little further up, we see terminal 1, Delta's terminal. Along with this, we see the control tower for the airport. Its placed right on the road because it literally takes the place of the old control tower from the old airport.

Moving over, we see terminal 2. This terminal is the smallest of the three, and it serves all of the international flights coming into and going out of Baychester. It has only a couple docks for large intercontinental jets like the 747, so most international flights go to Canada, London, Paris, and Madrid.

Terminal 3 is the largest of the three terminals, and it carries most other airlines. The Continental flights along with the United flights arrive and depart from here. Incidentally, American, Airtran, and Southwest have not started service to BIA yet, but all have plans to start in the next few years.

Here, we see Terminal 3 and very little of Terminal 2 along with Runway 1 and parts of Runway 2. the runways are parallel but staggered.

Finally, we get an overview of the three terminals of the airport.

Now just to make sure you guys come back even if there is a long delay between updates, Im posting a teaser pic of part of the last part of downtown Baychester, South Slopes. The update covering this part of town is a long one, and it should take at least 2 updates.

I think your ramps are too close to the taxiways , the surrounding area is also a bit empty, other than that, I enjoyed seeing the airport!

Nice airport, but the road leading into it seems a bit unrealistic, considering the amount of parking compared to the two lane road that services the airport. You should upgrade to maybe an avenue and some mass transit somewhere in there. It might help the emptiness problem that @10000000000 was talking about. Other than that, I really like the airport. Seems busy haha :D
