Hey everyone!

We’re opening up this week’s FNF choice to our community. This is always a fun thing to do, and we very much enjoy hearing all the suggestions! This week, all FNF suggestions must include the following rule:

Airports must lie on the coast of their country

You can have just one hub, or you can spread it across many so that a few smaller airports can be incluided.


Guidelines

To get your suggestion seen by staff, we suggest you make it as detailed as possible! Here are a few tips we have for making a suggestion:

  1. State the name and code of the airport

  2. Give well-written reasons as to why the airport is a good choice

  3. Make sure the suggestion meets the criteria for an FNF airport. These include, but are not limited to, multiple runways, multiple frequencies, a large number of parking gates and an area that has not been recently used!

  4. Add a photo!

Suggestions will be taken until every Wednesday at 1700Z. A poll will then be in place until Thursday at 0900Z.


So, without further ado, we would love to hear suggestions for this week’s FNF below! Multiple airports are allowed.

Hub: Kuala Lumpur - WMKK

image

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) (Bahasa Malaysia is Malaysia’s main international airport and one of the biggest airports in Southeast Asia and worldwide. It is located in Sepang District of Selangor, approximately 45 kilometres (28 mi) south of Kuala Lumpur city centre and serves the Greater Klang Valley conurbation.

Why Kuala Lumpur?
I have never really seen WMKK as featured on the FNF before. SE Asia in general is pretty underrated, so let’s give Asian VAs a chance to shine!

This may be controversial but:

Beirut, Lebanon

Airport:
Beirut, Lebanon (OLBA)

Reason:
The airport is well-equipped for a lot of people to fly-in and flyout.
It would also serve as a way to share the sorrows of those affected by the Beirut blast that happened yesterday. I’m sure many IFC users would appreciate an FNF that reassures that the IFC is there to help.

Airport has also been featured on the IFC before as main hub. It can handle the traffic with the 3 runways.


EDIT: Many people are saying that Beirut would not be able to handle a lot of traffic & ATC would be overwhelmed.

In that case, I highly recommend checking out @George’s post for the West Mediterranean FNF. This would include Istanbul, Beirut, Amman, & other airports to make sure that traffic doesn’t cause a nightmare.

LEPA (aka Palma de Mallorca)

About

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palma_de_Mallorca_Airport

A stunning parrellel runway airport situated on the Island of Mallorca, it is clearly a busy airport. With 4 terminals and international and domestic travel coming in everyday it would be a fantastic choice for this weeks FNF. With runways around 10000 ft long it is great for your Big boi A380 and your babybus A318! Multiple frequencies can be open and it has been shown to handle traffic very well when being a featured airport.

Don’t forget its in Spain so get those sunglasses on and that sunblock out its sunbathing time. Who doesnt want a Mallorca FNF! Whoop Whoop.

I present Christchurch Airport!
image



Christchurch Airport, CHC, NZCH is a Bravo Class airport situated on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand. This airport serves the city of Christchurch, which is the 2nd biggest city in New Zealand after Auckland. This airport is a focus city for Air New Zealand, as well as Jetstar and many other airlines. CHC also has a large international reach, with flights operated daily from the likes of Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai (Via Sydney). These routes were only operational before COVID-19, now it is a bit quieter unfortunately. CHC also has a strong GA presence, with 2 of its 3 runways dedicated to the Christchurch Aero Club, which is one of the biggest aero clubs in the country! There is a additionally a big military presence, with the USAF using CHC as a base for flights to Antarctica, and NASA operate their 747 SOFIA Sky-telescope here quite often, to make the most of NZ’s clean sky’s!

Fun fact, Christchurch was the smallest city in the world to receive a daily Emirates A380 service, Cool right?! American were also going to begin an 787 service from LA, but uhhhhhh, Corona happened :( Hopefully we all can have the chance to visit this awesome place!

India. There hasn’t been an FNF dedicated to India in a long long time. Airports include VABB, VIDP, VOBL, and even obscure ones like Leh, Poet Blair, Agatti etc. There’s a wide variety of scenery all through as well - it’ll make for a beautiful FNF

Airport:
Zurich International Airport, LSZH

Reason:
Descent into LSZH is beautiful, you fly past the Swiss Alps, the Austrian Alps and you also get to see the beautiful scenery of Switzerland. It has 3 runways, perfect for a fly-in/fly-out. It has many gates that can handle from GA aircrafts to the biggest of the biggest, A380.

Anchorage

Airport: Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (PANC)

About
History

Built in 1951, the airport was served in the 1950s by Alaska Airlines, Northwest Orient, Pacific Northern Airlines and Reeve Aleutian Airways, using aircraft ranging from Douglas DC-3s to Boeing 377s,[5] and was also a refueling stop for Canadian Pacific Air Lines service to the Far East (one such aircraft being involved in a 1951 disappearance). From 1955 to 2011, the eastern end of the airport’s southernmost runway connected to the Kulis Air National Guard Base.

Anchorage was a common stopover for passengers flying to East Asia until the late 1980s because airspace in China, Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc countries were off-limits and because the first generation of jets and widebody airliners did not have the range to fly non-stop across the Pacific Ocean. Carriers using Anchorage for this purpose included:

  • Northwest Orient, the first airline to operate scheduled trans-Pacific service after World War II, used Elmendorf Field[6] and later Anchorage International as a stopover for service between US points (Seattle, Chicago and Minneapolis at various times) and Tokyo as late as the mid-1970s.[7]
  • Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) began a transpolar flight from Copenhagen to Tokyo via Anchorage in 1957.[8]
  • Japan Airlines served Seattle through Anchorage in the early 1960s,[9] and offered service through Anchorage to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Düsseldorf and other European cities from the 1960s until as late as 1987.[10]
  • Air France, British Airways, Iberia, KLM, Lufthansa and Sabena all used Anchorage as a stopover point between Europe and Tokyo into the 1980s.[11][12]
  • Korean Air used Anchorage as a stopover point for flights between Seoul and both Europe and the continental US in the 1980s.[13] On September 1, 1983, one of these flights, Flight 007 was shot down by a Soviet pilot who had mistaken it for a spy plane, after unintentionally violating Soviet airspace.

Most scheduled passenger service from Anchorage to Europe and Asia ceased in the early 1990s following the end of the Cold War. Korean Air continued to serve Anchorage on a scheduled basis until the early 2000s. China Airlines, the last Asian carrier to serve Anchorage on a regular basis, used Anchorage as an intermediate stop on its Taipei-New York route until 2011, when it rerouted these flights to stop in Osaka.[14][15] While a few charter passenger aircraft still stop at Anchorage on flights between Asia and the eastern United States, scheduled cargo carriers – which benefit from more volume and thus shorter route segments – continue to use Anchorage frequently. Condor still uses the Frankfurt-Anchorage route on a Boeing 767.

In the 1990s, Alaska Airlines and Aeroflot operated service from Anchorage to several destinations in the Russian Far East, including Khabarovsk, Magadan, Petropavlovsk, Vladivostok and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.[16] Alaska Airlines pulled out of these markets in 1998 due to insufficient demand,[17] while the Aeroflot services were primarily intended as technical stops en route to Seattle and San Francisco and were cancelled once newer aircraft and nonstop rights became available. Reeve Aleutian Airways, Dalavia and MAVIAL Magadan Airlines also offered service between Anchorage and the Russian Far East at various times, catering to Kamchatka oil exploration and other niche markets.[18]

The airport was renamed in 2000 by the Alaska Legislature to honor then long-standing U.S. Senator Ted Stevens.[19] Stevens survived a crash at the airport in 1978 that also killed his then-wife.[20]

In October 2018, Alaska Governor Bill Walker and Heilongjiang Province Governor Wang Wentao announced plans to connect Anchorage and Harbin Taiping International Airport with year-round, nonstop flights as early as the summer of 2019.[21]

On November 30, 2018, the airport suffered minor damage and was temporarily closed following a magnitude 7.0 earthquake in the area.[22] In June 2019, American Airlines switched the Boeing 737-800 on their seasonal route to Phoenix with the Airbus A321neo making them the first and only airline as of July 2019 to use the A321neo at Anchorage.

During the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, the airport was briefly the busiest in the United States due to sustained volume of cargo flights through Alaska while passenger travel sharply decreased in other American airports.[23

Passenger Traffic

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport’s passenger traffic hovered around the five million mark between 1998 and 2008, apart from in 2002 when the airport suffered a 13% drop in traffic. Fairbanks and Juneau are the next busiest airports though neither managed more than half a million passengers last year. Anchorage traffic peaks in June, July and August when passenger numbers are twice as high as between October and April.[24] Most major U.S. passenger carriers serve ANC, with the majority of passenger flight operations by Alaska Airlines to and from Seattle (an average of 20 flights per day) and Fairbanks (5-7 flights per day).

Anchorage is also envisioned as a future connecting point for air traffic to the Russian Far East. During the summer season of 2008, there was one weekly flight to Russia by Vladivostok Air. Yakutia Airlines resumed summer seasonal service to Russia in 2012.[25] Many of Alaska’s North Slope workers live either in Anchorage or elsewhere in the Lower 48 states and fly through the airport to their jobs in Prudhoe Bay.

As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 2,599,313 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2008,[26] 2,282,666 enplanements in 2009, and 2,342,310 in 2010.[27]

International Cargo Hub

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is a major cargo hub.[28] As of 2015, it ranked as the fourth busiest airport in the world by cargo traffic, after Hong Kong, Memphis, and Shanghai–Pudong.

FedEx Express and UPS Airlines operate major hubs at Anchorage International for cargo heading to and from the Far East.[24] NWA Cargo used to operate a major hub at the airport until December 28, 2009 when it closed all operations for Northwest Cargo at all airports. FedEx Express is the airport’s largest cargo facility and can handle as many as 13,400 packages per hour, employing more than 1,200 people and providing a full customs clearance system. United Parcel Service’s hub handles about 5,000 parcels per hour. Both companies forecast a large growth in traffic over the next several years as trade with China and other Far East countries increases and plan to expand their Anchorage facilities comparatively.[ citation needed ] The United States Postal Service also operates a large sectional center facility (SCF) for the 995xx ZIP Codes. It processes mail and parcels headed to and from all Alaska cities.

Facilities and aircraft

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport covers an area of 4,608 acres (1,865 ha) at an elevation of 151 feet (46 m) above mean sea level. It has three runways: 7L/25R is 10,600 by 150 feet (3,231 x 46 m) with an asphalt surface; 7R/25L is 12,400 by 200 feet (3,780 x 61 m) with an asphalt/concrete surface; 15/33 is 10,865 by 200 feet (3,312 x 61 m) with an asphalt surface. The airport also has one asphalt helipad that is 100 by 100 feet (30 x 30 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending April 30, 2019, the airport had 261,961 aircraft operations, an average of 718 per day: 38% scheduled commercial, 32% general aviation, 29% air taxi, and <1% military. At that time there were 109 aircraft based at this airport: 61% multi-engine, 14% helicopter, 15% jet, and 10% single-engine.[1]

The FAA projects operations to increase to 334,279 by 2030, or 918.882 operations per day.[29]

Terminals

The South Terminal (domestic) serves Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Condor (Departures), Delta Air Lines, Icelandair (Departures), Sun Country, and United Airlines. All regional intrastate carriers also use the South Terminal.

The South terminal contains three concourses: Concourse A, Concourse B, and Concourse C. The area of what is today Concourse C stood the original airport terminal constructed in the 1950s. A hexagonal satellite terminal was constructed across the main structure shortly afterward. In 1969, the terminal underwent a major expansion, forming what is today Concourse B - notable new features included a curved arrival/departure structure with an elevated departure ramp for vehicles. The sweeping structure was designed to connect with the existing hexagonal satellite, now the end of Concourse B. In 1985, Concourse A was added. In 2009, This portion of the South terminal received seismic and aesthetic upgrades.

Concourse C was completely rebuilt in 2004, design by McCool Carlson Green Architects, while Concourses A and B were built in 1985 and 1969 respectively and renovated in 2009.[30] Architects HNTB and RIM Architects performed the architectural work for A/B Concourse.[31] The south terminal also contains two L gates, numbered L1 and L2. These gates are outside security on the lower level and adjacent to Concourse A.

The North Terminal (international), designed by McCool Carlson Green Architects, serves Condor, Eurowings, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Icelandair, Yakutia Airlines, all international seasonal charter flights, and military flights. In addition to these airlines, a few cargo airlines use the north side of the terminal for parking while their aircraft have small problems that need maintenance for a day or so. This terminal was built in 1982.[30]

Airlines and destinations

Roughly thirty-seven destinations are accessible from ANC via nonstop or direct flights, including destinations in 14 U.S. states and the countries of Canada, Germany, Iceland, and Russia. U.S. mainline carriers operate a combination of year-round and seasonal service to the lower 48 states and Hawaii. Foreign carriers operate seasonal flights and seasonal charters to Canada, Asia, and Europe, the latter two sold as bundled services.[32]

Reason

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (PANC) is an airport located in the state of Alaska (US), it has 3 runways and a lot of gates. Alaska is mabye the place with best scenery in Infinite Flight so it is a great place both for VFR and IFR! It almost ever has ATC or traffic and is very underrated.

The airport has almost never gotten featured on IFC before as a main hub.

Canary Islands


Airports -> GCLP, GCTS, GCFV, GCRR, GCXO, GCLA, GCHI.


I think a Canaries FNF would be amazing as there is lots of airports to choose from, amazing scenery and It serves alot for Tourism within the European Citys. Lots of Airlines fly there, for example, Jet2, easyjet, Vueling, British Airways, Iberia, Binter and many more Popular Airlines!
It would be great to have a few featured airlines too as there is a diverse group of operators there, especially Binter!
GCLP (Gran Canaria) is the biggest out of all with a huge apron, with lots of space and Dual Runways.
It would be great to see airports like Leeds and Birmingham open too as Jet2 operate flights to there.


A few Pictures of the surounding area:


The last two are mine, I went To Gran Canaria last year (Leeds -> Gran Canaria).

Well, I’ve got the perfect airport for you!

Meet the one & only costal Sydney Airport located on the east coast of New South Wales, Australia in the beautiful Botany Bay with an abundance of beaches nearby! SYD//YSSY is one of the world’s longest continuously operated commercial airports and is the busiest airport in Australia, handling 42.6 million passengers and 348,904 aircraft movements in 2016–17. It’s also a vital role of Qantas’s flight operations as Sydney is Qantas’s main hub for all flight operations and currently 46 domestic and 43 international destinations are served to Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport


  • Sydney airport is the literal definition of a costal airport with half of our airport on top of Botany Bay, ultimately providing some awesome costal views of New South Wales & beyond!
  • Recently, Qantas retired their last B747 aka, the Queen Of The Skies, so this would be an awesome way to say our final goodbye to this icon that so many of us know & love.
  • Sydney airport is Australia’s busiest & largest airport, subsequently it will be very well suited for the huge & diverse range of traffic that comes along with Friday Night Flights.
  • The airport additionally has numerous gates, freqs, runways and of course comes with the Australian Spirit that we all love!
  • YSSY additionally utilises parallel runway operations which provides excellento opportunities for some absolutely stunning photos and exciting flights across the east coast of NSW.
  • You’ll be treated to some of the best views of Sydney Harbour, the Northern & Eastern beaches, cockatoo island, Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains & a ton more of landmarks across of New South Wales! Shoot me a PM if you’re looking for a beauty sightseeing flight ;)
  • Sydney airport has destinations and connections from all over the globe, eg - Fly Sydney to Los Angeles, or you even fly to Singapore and then onwards to London on the famous Kangaroo route!

All in all, Sydney Kingsford Smith would be a complete banger of a candidate for an overall stunning, costal and exciting FNF. Overall, a unique & breathtaking location for an engaging event for the entirety of the Infinite Flight Community!

Secondary airports? Here’s a few ideas from @TRDubh:

Secondary Airports

On top of the lovely Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport, Australia is home to gorgeous scenery and lovely airfields across the country.

Here are some of the great airports that would compliment Sydney in this Friday Night Flight:

__

Melbourne Tullamarine Airport - YMML

Multiple airlines in Australia fly this route to Australia’s second-largest airport, with the largest being Qantas. This route sees a strong frequency of flights on the daily.

Brisbane International Airport - YBBN

Brisbane is Australia’s third-largest airport, with a strong load of flights connecting these two major cities down under.

Adelaide Airport - YPAD

Adelaide is Australia’s fifth-largest city, with lovely views of Australia’s southern coast. This route is also served by a large variety of airlines. The largest of which being Qantas, Jetstar, and Virgin Australia.

Canberra Airport - YSCB

Canberra is the capital city of Australia. It has a large frequency of flights from other airports in Australia and has lovely views surrounding it. I wouldn’t miss it - the flight to Sydney is stunning.

Hobart Airport - YMHB

While often forgotten about, Hobart is a nice town and capital of the island of Tasmania. It has a good connection of flights to the mainland from Jetstar, Qantas, and Virgin Australia.

Coffs Harbour - YCFS

The flights from Coffs Harbour from Sydney are always stunning. Qantas(link) and Virgin Australia are the largest commercial operator of flights to this small airport in Northern New South Wales.
