Face the challenge - organize and manage an airport! This exercise is not easy, demanding great skills and persistence. At the beginning you have enough time to take care about the landed aircraft. Once the aircraft has been assigned to an airport gate workload will increase immensely and you will be under considerable strain. You have to steer all vehicles such as boarding stairs, baggage carts, fuel trucks etc. Even the maintenance crews are within your responsibility. For taking care of the ongoing flow of landing aircrafts you will get paid. Depending on your efficiency in fulfilling tasks without delay you will be able to hire workforce for vehicles and dedicated tasks at the gates. Based on your success the airport will slowly but surely move into an automated operation. Only who is planning tactical clever and forward looking will reach the goal - up to eight planes have to be handled simultaneously. Realistic announcements, rumbling engine sound as well as changing weather conditions create a fascinating atmosphere which is familiar to you from the airports all over the world. Features: All vehicles can be steered Automation of the airport is possible Authentic airport sound Up to eight gates must be serviced at the same time Changing weather conditions Detailed aircraft design
Advantages: Fascinating, historic, romantic, magical, nowhere else like it Disadvantages: Must go at the right time, can be very busy

Review of Istanbul (Turkey)
Advantages: Close to the airport, very grand, good facilities Disadvantages: Rather bland, very average food, expensive
...I have had a one night stay here recently. I had never been to Istanbul before so was excited about my visit. This hotel is a five star hotel owned by the Marriott group. It's located 11 miles from the centre of Istanbul which is easy to get to by public transport or taxi. The airport is about 3 miles away and the hotel runs a free shuttle bus.
The hotel is a striking...
Advantages: So many wonderful sights, clean and easy to get around, reasonable prices Disadvantages: Smoking in some places put us off our meals
...that struck me as we drove from the Airport to the hotel (apart from the speed and interesting lane changes) was the number of spring flowers along the roadsides. There was a mass of colour which constantly changed from red to blue to yellow then orange, purple and so on. There were tulips en mass and I just was not expecting this in Istanbul, it was the sort of display found in Holland in spring. It...
