Balkan Peninsula

A while ago, @turkish534 proposed the addition of a Mediterranean Sea Region. While it would be awesome to have something as big as this area, current devices wouldn´t be able to properly handle it, due to its extension.
The region I suggest includes Western Turkey, Greece, Albania and Macedonia, with multiple islands in Greece for island hopping, and Istambul, the only city in the Middle East to be in Europe.
In total, the region should have 103 airports, international, regional/public use and military.

  1. Alexandroupoli Airport: one asphalt runway, 07/25, 8471ft/2582m.

Please comment and give feedback.

P.S: I know there´s something big going on, with the recent off-region flights of Matt. But we aren´t sure if the Devs have figured out a way to go global or its just inter-regional.

What’s the approximate dimensions of the region?

2 Likes

Bigger than SoCal, but smaller than London, Paris and Amsterdam if ever combined.

If we got more Turkish Airlines and Greek liveries, it would be useful. Not entirely yet, however.

The region doesn´t have to be restricted to Turkish or Greek airlines.

4 Likes

It doesn’t, but it would be more popular and attract more attention if there were airlines that have a hub in the region.

SoCal should be flooded by US only airlines, and I see Swiss, Turkish, British, Air France, and many other liveries. The popularity of the region is based on how big it is and how many airports does it have.

Beauti job and great idea, Ive thought also beetwen Greece and Turkey but we have in Turkey very low Airports. But Istanbul(AtatürkIST & Sabiha GökcenSAW), Izmir, Bodrum, Dalaman, Antalya are most popular Airports of West of Turkey. Would be nice Region for next Future, if there open 3rd Airport in Istanbul, then want to see on Infinite Flight.

No airports in the Former Yugoslavic Republic of Macedonia or Bulgaria?

If it was moved north a little, it could fit Skopje.

This is probably the best region request I’ve seen! I’d love to see this added (if a region is going to be added before global flight). How about the international tourism airports such as Bodrum and Dalaman in Turkey? Those are in the area you marked out. Nice job :)

Milas Bodrum is great.

Yeah especially the new terminal. I go there every summer because my parents bought a summer villa out there.

It’s Macedonia and yes we have 2 airports so it would be a nice addition.

I’ll add those two in an hour. Are there any more airports in Western Turkey?

I’ll see what can I do to extend the highlighted area.

Well the official name is FYROM.
