Greetings,

Here are the details of a new Indian airport that could be added to the game. Source is from the BBC, and I include it hereunder.
Note: I tried to use the "Submit Airport" page, however I was unable to enter the coordinates in a decimal format, sorry.

Airport Name:       Pakyong Airport
City Name:          Gangtok
IATA code:          PYG
ICAO code:         VEPY
Latitude:            27° 13′ 57″ N
Longitude:          88° 35′ 18″ E
Continent:          Asia
Capacity:           5000 [commercial flights will begin on October 4th 2018, so this is a rough estimate]
Country:            India
State:               Sikkim
Runway Lenght:  5577 feet
Data Year:         2018
Source:             https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-45624436 
BBC article title:  "Is this one of the world's most beautiful airports?"

Hope it helps, and best regards.

Thanks! We will add it when it is open and operating - you can try to add the decimal coordinates from gcmap.com (the ones in parenthesis), they should work.
