Would it also help knowing metro area populations? Anyway Ardisphere currently is approx 20 million, with more than half in metro Villa Constitucion. Mahhal population is around 35 million, with Derindonderak metro area about 15 million, Askendom metro about 3 million. Tarrases is quite small but serves as gateway to metro Massamba a short ferry to mainland Mahhal, maybe metro 800,000.

In the two cases (Latina and Mahhal) where there's more than one destination in a country, the metro populations help. I'm dividing the total traffic for the country between the cities, based on their percentage of the total metro area populations. Where there's only one destination, in Ardisphere for example, I'm assuming that all air traffic to Paxtar would go through Villa Constitucion, so I only need the total for the country.

Here is the largest airport in terms of passenger traffic in the nation of Ismikk if you would like to add it to your destinations:
Airport Code: RPC
City Name: Palmerston City
Population: 2 Million
Nation of Ismikk

I added airports in Norad (main international gateway of Garlis), Tarott (Tarott-Kemburg International Airport, main international gateway of Kalm and not yet drawn in the OGF map as well as Tarott-Hipplanken, second-largest airport of Tarott), Forberg-Golbrünn International airport (my most detailed airport work so far, a smaller international airport in Kalm) and the regional airport of Helster island to the Wiki list.
I would be glad if you include international connections to Tarott and Norad into your timetable - and later maybe other airports of Kalm.

I would like to submit RBK as the Airport code for Reback.
The Estimated population of Drevet is 2.1 Million people.
Comment from okiazr on 21 April 2015 at 10:13
i Just add Pakuan Airport, which is the biggest airport in Pasundan-Padjadjaran.
Pasundan-Padjadjaran has about 60 million population, while Pakuan city has 3,3 mil inhabitant and Pakuan metro around 6 million inhabitant...
Airport Code: PAK/PPPK
City Name: Pakuan
Latitude: 25.9028 Longitude: 126.9113
Comment from Portopolis on 21 April 2015 at 11:17
AVEwood would be the code. also NoVogoraD in the northern island contains the main airport on that island as it is not easy to access as it is in a different "country" or subcountry if you want to call it that here are the coordinates
Comment from Leowezy on 21 April 2015 at 15:01
I've added Pyingshum International Airport to your list above, here's the data you need if you'd like to add it to your list:
Pyingshum International Airport
36.5986 N, 119.0652 E
37.5 million ( ~10mil in metro region, but our countries are so far apart that all flights from your country would probably either transfer inbetween or perhaps go directly to PSM)
Comment from Paxtar on 21 April 2015 at 15:05
@Canclaret: Palmerston City has been added.
@joschi81: Tarott and Norad are added. Can you provide population estimates for Kalm and Garlis?
@okiazr: Pakuan has been added.
@Portopolis: I've updated Avewood. At about 700m, the runways in Novogorad appear to be too short to accommodate long range aircraft.
Comment from Easky30 on 21 April 2015 at 15:42
I like GCX for Gobras City.
Ahagonara (AHA)? International Airport at the southeastern tip of Orinoco will be the 3rd major airport in Orinoco and possibly the busiest in the country due to its location and being one of the closest stops before the new continents. Ahagonara will also serve as the airport for Duralta World Park. World Park will be a major theme park several mIles wide.
Comment from Paxtar on 21 April 2015 at 16:03
@ Leowezy: I've been using Khaiwoon as a refuel stop since I'm so far away. The wiki airport list isn't mine, but I've been using it as a reference. Pyingshum is added to my destination list.
@Easky30: Because of the distance, I'd like to limit myself to one airport in Orinoco. I that's First Harbor, do you have an airport code in mind for that? Or should I update to Ahagonara? If you have a general idea of what the population of Orinoco is, that would also be helpful.
Comment from Easky30 on 21 April 2015 at 16:26
First Harbor is FHO.
Orinoco's population is just over 79 Million.
Comment from antoon on 21 April 2015 at 17:37
I hadn't thought about a code for my international airport near Senford, Neberly. I don't even have a location yet, but i think it will be near the town of Beeston. This would make the airport code: SFB (SenFord/Beeston). The population is easier: there are over 22.5 million inhabitants in Neberly, as mentioned in the wiki-article.
Comment from isleño on 21 April 2015 at 17:58
I can't wait to see the result of all this number crunching. :-)
If you're going for realism, btw, you may want to assign each destination a "closeness" variable, which you could calculate by adding up points for geographic proximity, linguistic similarity, economic linkages, attractiveness to tourists, social/cultural/historical ties, etc. Some of those would obviously need to be wild guesses (perhaps that makes it unfeasible?) but in reality of course these types of "closeness" would determine demand much more than population. Anyway just a thought. Good luck!
Comment from Paxtar on 21 April 2015 at 19:53
@antoon: Thanks for the code, and sorry I missed the article.
@isleño: Too many variables! :)
I was able to get some real-world traffic data between counties and cities and found there is some correlation between total city sizes and air traffic between them. Domestic city pairs have higher percentages of travel than international ones, but domestic traffic volume also differs significantly between countries. Based on what I was able to find, Australia has a higher percentage traffic, based on city populations, than the US. Germany much lower than both, but is smaller and has amazing rail service.
Distance between cities seemed to have some effect, but there seems to be less correlation. Most likely the other factors you pointed out. I am assigning a demand variance to cities, to tweak the numbers up and down a little, keeping 'closeness' in mind. I don't expect my numbers will be especially realistic, but I'm hoping to be within the realm of the possible. Mostly I want to avoid things like 20 daily flights to a country with 5000 residents.
Once I know where I'm flying, and determine how often, I at least want to make sure there are enough aircraft for the schedule, and that they show up and leave realistically. Even if everything else is mostly guesswork. :)
Comment from isleño on 21 April 2015 at 22:31
Glad to hear you'll be tweaking. In any case, have fun!
Comment from tom_m7 on 22 April 2015 at 01:37
The three-letter code for the Duerst airport is DNC.
I haven't actually mapped the airport yet, so the latitude and longitude will change. I am also working on recounting my population, but that will take a while as well.
Comment from tom_m7 on 22 April 2015 at 01:39
^The population count may increase at least 2x or 3x.
Comment from Paxtar on 22 April 2015 at 03:22
@ tom_m7: Code is updated here. Lat and Lon should get me in to the right neighborhood. Can make updates again later. The population has been updated to 30 million. I'm not posting the population numbers anywhere, just using them to create estimates. Thanks!
Comment from Pawl on 22 April 2015 at 07:05
I've added four airports to the list for Tircambry. Tircambry's population is 11 million :
Bresilli (BSI) - metro population 256,000
Caerarthen Lleifwr (CLL) - Caerarthen population 1,170,000
Porthbrenhin (PRN) - metro population 305,000
Trefeirion (TRF) - metro population 626,000
Comment from clik on 22 April 2015 at 11:08
The airport of Tilia (TIL) would be glad to have at least a weekly flight with Paxtar. It's not mapped yet, but it will soon be. Tilia's urban area is about 1.5 million, situated in the most populous part of the country (5/6 million), which means that the cities around use the same airport. Egani is around 20 millions inhabitants.
Comment from Sarepava on 22 April 2015 at 23:21
Sorry to be a pain, but I've just changed the airport codes for the two Säntjana airports. SAT seemed illogical for a recently-opened airport when it was closer to the name of an older one. So Anola-Fiorii is now SAF and Tougu is SAT. I presume you still want to fly into the shiny new one...
It would be nice to serve Vasireii (pop 1 million) too, but up to you as to whether you think a transcontinental service to two cities only 500km apart in a country of only 18 million is feasible. Don't forget that many airlines operate codeshares, so a route operated by Air Karolia or another carrier could count as a Paxair flight even if the plane has red paint on the tail.
Also, did you ever finish the Air Karolia/Kärolijas Lennuvai WA-39 picture? I would like to illustrate the airline's page with it.
Comment from Paxtar on 23 April 2015 at 01:26
I've been using SAF for Safrisco since I first set up the airport. Any way you pick another code for Anola-Fiorii? I've been searching the Airline wiki before picking codes for airports.
I'm still working on my flight scheduler, but once I have everything set up I'll have a better idea on Vasureii. I like the idea of a code share. One more thing to figure out how to program.
I think I sent you a link with a final version of the W39 a while back, but if you're ready to use it, I'd like to update the background of the image. I picked a cloud background that was available for use, but didn't make a note of where I found it. I can drop in an image that's original work, to avoid any problems.
Comment from Paxtar on 23 April 2015 at 02:49
Sorry, Airport wiki!
Comment from Sarepava on 23 April 2015 at 22:46
Oops, I'll change it to SAN which is also logical for both city and airport names. Just post the WA39 on this wiki using upload image and I'll link the page to it.

Would it be possible to add Petersburgh, Drevet?
Comment from Voytek on 1 May 2015 at 18:50
I don't like to focus on one thing so I work in few places. Currently I'm finishing raceway north of Ashbourne and then I'll come back to finish the airport. It needs a lot of details. Can you add Ashbourne International Airport? It's listed in airports list :)
