Firstly, this is my first ever topic, so if there’s anything I can improve, do let me know!
Secondly, a while back I realised that I was always flying from/to the same airports and decided that I wanted to get out there and see the world, but I couldn’t really decide on a good way to see each part of the world in one tour with so many airports implemented in Live. So, I let Wikipedia do the thinking for me: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_busiest_airports_by_passenger_traffic
I will be flying to each one of the fifty airports on the list in order (1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd etc) over the course of however long this will take, I can’t be entirely precise on a timescale, but I will update this thread approximately 24 hours before I plan to do each leg of the journey, in case any of you wish to join me (all flights will be on the expert server, unless stated otherwise).
The tracker below will be updated so you can see what stage of the tour will be coming up next (and so I don’t forget myself!) and I’ll keep a handy little percentage running also, just for the fun of it!
Hope to see you in the skies soon! Note: All flight times given will be calculated based on a 787-9 flying long-haul routes and an A320-200 on short-haul routes.
The first twenty routes can be found below, the remaining thirty will be published as time goes on.
