Face the challenge - organise 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.

- Automation of the airport is possible

Not a true simulator but not fun eitherhisnameisrob | April 8, 2011 | See all hisnameisrob's reviews »
This game disappointed me greatly. There is just no excitement in it and yet it doesn't feel like a true simulator either. The graphics are drab and although you get a wide variety of airport vehicles to drive they tend to handle poorly.
As each plane arrives you must drive the appropriate vehicles to gate where it stops (and connect the bridge from the terminal building to the plane's door - very tricky). As you position each vehicle in next to the plane it then begins a long period where you have nothing to do but wait for the place to be fueled, maintained, loaded, etc. It probably doesn't all happen in real time but it does begin to feel like it!
With so many better titles available I can't recommend this one.
