Today we will be visiting Lagouira International Airport; a small, poorly planned, yet bustling airport.

The terminal has recently been upgraded and was designed by a Japanese firm. Due to space constrictions the airport only has eight gates and a small cargo terminal on the other side of the runway.

Another interesting feature of the airport is how close the runway is to a major avenue and the beach. Plane-spotting tourists often gather on the beach to get a close-up view of the airport.

There are five airlines that primarily fly into Lagouira.

Now that you know how to get to Gharbiyya there is no excuse not to visit this fine country! We are almost finished with the city of Lagouira and will probably be moving on to another country in the Zouérat Islamic Federation, either the Mahibadhoos (a collection of atolls off the coast of Africa), or the Emirate of Dhahran (an ultra modern, oil-rich Emirate in the Middle East). Let me know which you would like to visit next and I will see what can be arranged.

Inspired by [b]_marsh_[/b]'s airport in Nouadibouh, eh? I just love tight-packed airports, and yours looks very cool... Oh, and those delicious HD plane props...

I'm rooting for Dhahran, I'm afraid I'm going to need a bit more inspiration for my very own skyscraper-dominated emirate!

Congratulations on being the 100th comment for this CJ. The airport was indeed inspired by _marsh_.

VERY..very.. marsh like. Its as if I'm seeing marsh's CJ being recarniated. :P

Good work.

EDIT: Do Mahibadhoos first, slums IMO are more interesting than wealthy cities.

How could I miss this :( ???? Great work here! I suspect though that those nearby residences would recieve some nasty noise pollution :lol:

-As for the other thing, let's go with Dhahran :D , I mean, an ultra-modern oil rich emirate? Sounds awesome! Kind of like Atlantsia, but probably way better since you'll be doing it :yes:

And I thought I had seen a similiar airport before and then I was like duhh, Gansbaai :P
