After long last we can finally release the submit airport page. Many thanks to those who have tested it, we are just finalising the admin side of it now.

If you have an airport to submit please use the form below;
http://www.airlinemogul.com/airlinemogul/submit_airport.php

Notes:
The thing hates cargo numbers of 0; so wherever there is no cargo data please input 1 in the cargo field.

Passenger numbers should be Enplanements AND deplanements added together, please and thank you.

Latitude and Longitude should be in DECIMAL format, and contain 6 decimal points. if GC gives you a shorter then 6 decimal point answer, just toss on 0's to the end until it's 6 decimal places.

Submitted airports will be reviewed and added as per [primarily] Rick's, or another game staffer [typically less], schedule.  It will not be immediate, but typically submitted airports get into the game within a week.

Updating game numbers may take longer, Please submit any passenger / cargo number updates in an email to :staff:

The present goals for the Airport Data Officer [Rick] are to ICAO the present data [around 1000 airports away] and as follows:

Reach 75 airports in the MidEast
Reach 150 airports in Central America
Reach 175 airports in Central America
Reach 175 airports in Australiasia
Reach 200 airports in Australiasia
Reach 175 airports in Africa
Reach 200 airports in Africa.

These goals exist to try to help keep the games airport numbers in some semblence of balance.  Any assistance you can offer Rick in reaching these goals I'm sure is much appreciated.  If a goal is met, it's typically replaced with a goal at the next 25 airport increment in the more deficient continents.  This is by no means any form of message to discourage submissions in other continents, just an attempt to steer some attention to the smaller continents.

The minimum numbers for addition are 1 passenger [commercial/air taxi/etc.] annually and/or 1 tonne of cargo annually.  AS presently cargo is an incomplete portion of the game, we please ask that the minimum of 1 passenger be met.

Preferred sources are government agencies [FAA, beaureaus of statistics, etc], Airport websites, and websites of those who own/operate the airports. Wikipedia is NOT a reliable source, and should be avoided where possible.

I am currently working on submitting some airports in Central America. I have found this page for pax data in Dominican Republic:

http://www.bancentral.gov.do/estadisticas_economicas/sector_turismo/lleg_total_2006.xls

I noticed that the in-game data are wrong:

POP Puerto Plata Airport 1,732,507 37 100,000 70,547  Dominican Republic
SDQ Santo Domingo-Las Americas Air 2,400,000 1 100,000 0  Dominican Republic

As per official 2006 pax numbers POP had 629.433 and SDQ had 1.279.327. The 1.7M pax number should be assigned to Punta Cana (not in game yet).

If you could update the pax numbers for POP and SDQ I will submit the four remaining ones from the list mentioned above.

EDIT:
Just noticed that I probably made a mistake. The link I mentioned above provides the arriving passengers for the airports only. The table does not include departures. Do we need to submit both in total (there is a second table for departures available)? If so please update the pax numbers for the following airports:

LAS AMERICAS           2,601,903
PUERTO PLATA    1,205,793
PUNTA CANA    3,448,584
LA ROMANA    491,650
CIBAO                    973,541
LA ISABELA*     32,823

*Could not find Lat/Long & RW length.

Durban will probably be replaced by King Shaka International Airport for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Just keep that in mind for future developments  :wink:

Now it is time to update and add Botswana airports. Found this website http://www.cso.gov.bw/ where pax data for 6 airports in Botswana are provided. Unfortunatly the statistics are a little outdated as they are from 2004. Anyway I will add the four mssing airports to the game and provide the official pax data for the both that are already in the game here. So you may update them.

FRW Francistown 35,047
GBE Gaborone-Seretse Khama 290,464

I noticed that most Thai data for domestic airports was updated till November 2007 now :) So I guess a couple of more weeks untill I can send an update again. Some airports have grown spectacular. Especially Phuket which will probably hit 6.000.000 pax. It shows that Thailand has an open skies policy more or less allowing everyone to open flights to any airport. If only they could get Suvarnabhumi on track and start expanding it ..... IT will hit it's maximum of 45 mill pax this year. There is talk of more flights back to Don Meuang. I might add Don Meaung today based on the figures of 2007 from jan to jun and doubling those, which is still less then the actual figures at year end.

It is a shame the updates for Delhi and Mumbai haven't been done yet. As both of these airports have 16 mill pax according to the 2005 statistics, way more than in the game. And airtraffic in India, same like Thailand is expanding rapidly.

I don't know if you are aware of the World Aeronautical Database (http://worldaerodata.com/).  It has detailed airport information for virtually every airport.

It doesn't contain pax and cargo data, and it doesn't have "virtually every airport". It has 47 chinese airports listed, while there are over 100 airports in China, as reported by CAAC (and this is just for example).

I just happened to come across the site today.  I was able to give a result for every airport I could throw at it, including some really small ones in India.  Anyway, I'lk keep an eye out for a site with more information.

you can always help in that process by gathering data by searching the web ;)

(wiki is not a accepted means of gathering data and you must have a source and must be more recent than 2007)
