Thessaloniki International Airport



I bring you the long awaited Thessaloniki International Airport (THX). This is my first serious attempt at a custom airport, so feedback is wanted! Let's start with a general overview image. You will also see a large nature preserve near the airport - it was required in exchange for receiving federal funding for the airport's construction.


Here is our main terminal and entrance.


Long term parking facility: (Thanks Mike from SC4D for the AWESOME garages!)


A couple night shots:



Lastly, here is 8th Of July Road. This is basically a spur off the M2 to provide direct freeway access to the airport. It was named for the anniversary of the President's marriage. Note how the inbound lanes cross over the outbound lanes to provide easy curb-side access to the terminal.

Its definitely a good airport..... A few suggestions:

- try using a variety of aircraft, often available here on the STEX
- try utilizing the space more- you could fit more gates in the space given.

Nevertheless, i still like your runways, and surrounding forests! Good job! Keep it up!

Very nice looking airport (I especially like the access roads). I second what sri2 said, and would add that I certainly hope you have a people-mover in that terminal, the long end looks like quite a walk for passengers!

Also, one pair of runways is a bit too close together. That isn't unrealistic - some space constrained airports actually are built like that - but it would limit operations and cause delays. You might want to think about moving the far runway in that pair a little closer to the edge of the map, since it looks like you have the space.

Its a good start, there is always room for improvement!

1..Since this is an international airport, the runways need to significantly larger, about 3/4th of a large city tile.
2. You need larger aircraft, I suggest using some 747s.
3. You need to connect those vehicle boundary markings between the gates.
4. Fences man, people could get free rides. :P
5. Look at real life examples of airports, you could get some inspiration from some designs.

Best of luck! :)
