ATC Choice Sunday- Fort Lauderdale Hollywood Intl.

Hello! Hola! Bonjou! As part of this Sunday's IFATC Schedule, along with providing service to the Orlando Sun-n-Fun Flyout, IFATC members are allowed to open up at any destination from Orlando International Airport!

This Sunday, I will be controlling from my home airport,
Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport!
This airport means so much to me as a South Florida resident, and is the airport. I most commonly fly out of. This is why I will be opening it at various times on Sunday throughout the day.

Airport Information

Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport (IATA: FLL, ICAO: KFLL, FAA LID: FLL) is a major public airport in Broward County, Florida, United States, and is one of three airports serving the Miami metropolitan area. The airport is off Interstate 595, Interstate 95, U.S. Route 1, Florida State Road A1A, and Florida State Road 5 bounded by the cities Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Dania Beach, 3 miles (5 km) southwest of downtown Fort Lauderdale and 21 miles (34 km) north of Miami.[3][4] With over 700 daily flights to 135 domestic and international destinations, FLL has become an intercontinental gateway since the late 1990s, although Miami International Airport still handles most long-haul flights. FLL serves as a primary airport for the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and Boca Raton areas. The airport is the primary base for Spirit Airlines and is also a base for Allegiant Air, JetBlue Airways, and Norwegian Air Shuttle. FLL is classified by the US Federal Aviation Administration as a “major hub” facility serving commercial air traffic.

Great thread @AviatorNikola! he only thing is, the Fort Lauderdale to London service doesn’t exist anymore. You should change it to Fort Lauderdale to Paris.

Ok I will, yeah it sucks it doesn’t exist.

That was a great route, it also had competition for a while with British Airways. But sherries operated Fort Lauderdale to one Gatwick for a few years, before they retired the route

Then, shortly after, Norwegian retired route. Also, you can add another option for the Fort Lauderdale to Dubai route, which is the most special route out of here.

Actually should I do to Oslo Gardemeon?

You should use the Emirates to Dubai

Yeah I will do Dubai, how could i forget!

Ikr, That’s the most special route!

Have a fun day tmr man 😀 and any time 😊
