Hello There guys ElectroSeptic here and welcome to Cork International Airport, a real airport in Southern Ireland which is Ireland's 2nd Biggest Airport. This Airport is located underneath the City of Cork and is in the part of Cork called Farmers Cross.
On Irish the Airport is called Aerfort Chorcai.




As it says, the IATA is ORK and ICAO is EICK, there are 2 runways: 17-35 which is the main runway used in the Airport and there is 07-25 which is a smaller runway that is mainly only used by smaller airplanes such as Aer Lingus Regional.

There is 1 Terminal which is only 10 years old, the older Terminal is a bit south of the Newer Terminal which is not in use, as you see the ATC is on the old Terminal so if you're wondering where it is, it's not there as I did not have the space to make the old Terminal. This all started with the first part of Runway 17 that I made was way too big but I was able to fix it all which is why I couldn't make the Old Terminal.

There are 8 gates out of the Terminal, and some other gates for emergency landings or small turbo-prop planes.

There are 38 destinations from Cork to the U.K, France, Spain, Portugal, Poland and Croatia.

Every year there are approximatly 2.5 Million Passangers every year.

10 Airlines fly here including Ryanair, Aer Lingus and CityJet.

The Operator is the same as every Airport in Ireland being DAA, Dublin Airport Authority




As you can see I wasn't able to make the old Terminal or the Hotels, I wasn't able to do the Hotels as I wanted to do the interior too but I was never in those particular hotels (Cork International Airport Hotel & Radisson Blue Cork Airport Hotel). As well as that you can see that the first part of Runway 17 I made way too long but then equalized it by making the second part smaller.



Now again seeing how I messed some things up, also seeing that the outside parking was a bit too big. So let's list the things I couldn't or didn't make:
- Old Terminal & Old Terminal Parking
- TNT Deliverys Hangars
- 2 Hotels
- Cork Airport Buisness Park
- Extra Roads



At Night of course the Runway lights up and so does the Terminal and everything else that is supposed to.

When I started building the airport it honestly looked like some kind of Bus Station, I'd show you a picture if I had one... oh wait I do:


There is only ONE major flaw in this map which is that the Arrivals somehow didn't work out too well and not just that on Google Maps the Street View in the Airport doesn't go further then the Luggage Carousel.

I Honestly think that I might actually make the Hotel and some other things if I get the chance at the end of my holidays.


I'm probably not going to stop advertising this project until I get about 50 or 70 Diamonds, maybe even 100 because I honestly think this is my best project and think that I just worked extremely hard on this.


Hope You like it!

This is amazing! Could I use this in my own world please (I'll give you credit) Also could you try build either Dublin Airport or Madrid Airport please?
As long as you give me credit I'll be totally fine with it just if you could tell me what you were planning to do with it?

And yes I am definetly making Dublin Airport but Lanzarote might just come before, but I am definetly making Dublin Airport.

Oh and love your name and profile picture ;)

I love the airport and everything inside, but the plane could use some work. Nice job!
Thanks ;)

And I know, like I said before that was just for me because that's the plane I'm using to go on holidays :P
Oh and every gate inside the Terminal has every real detail of the flight number and stuff like that.

cool
cool! could you build either shannon airport or dublin airport?
Actually I was thinking about it and I'll probably do Dublin Airport, I can't really do Shannon since I was never there though, might try one day. But yeah I'll most likely do Dublin Airport but I can't promise you that I will finish it soon, it'll probably be done in April or something since I might be going back to Dublin Airport in April, might do it sooner.

If you have some other Airport suggestions though if I've been there I'd be happy to build it ;)

I'd suggest to increase the ramp size and make the aircraft longer (which fit to common scale atm)
Good suggestions, only problem with making the aircraft longer (and the aircraft was actually kind of only made as it's the plane I'm using to go on holidays, hence the gate inside the Terminal) is that realistically it wouldn't be able to taxi smoothly out of the gate to the runway.

I read this as cook, and you made me hungry.
Nice build, Electro~ c:
Smh you always take puns out of my builds >:(

Np ;) btw as one of my better friends you might as well know that this is my actual International Airport, I live in the city above :P Cork.

Hah, sorry cx

Ahh, I see.. I don't believe I'm near any international airports. xD
:P

What about an airport? Doesn't have to be International (but then again you are in California and there are a lot of Airports in Cali.

Yeah, I'm near a relatively big one, but not too sizable.
Which one? If you'll tell me :P

Mine isn't big either compared to Dublin or London or Mallorca.

Oh and plz show this map to your other friends or something, I just feel like this deserves many diamonds :P

Nah, I prefer to keep that to myself. :P

I'll send the link to my friends. c:
Also, I reccomend you check out some Dark Psytrance music. It's really good thinking music. :D
I don't mind just like Airports and wanted to see what it looked like :P

Thankies :⊃
Oooh I'll be sure to check that out, I also advise you to check out music made by Madeon, he's French, I think. Anyway he makes really good dubstep and electro music ;)

I might be able to take a picture sometime. ^^

Darnit! You have a fancy keyboard that can do that xD
Sounds interesting! ^^
Yay ^.^

And lol so true XD
Nicely done! But I am given a feeling that building on a larger scale (not player) would help it be more detail.
Thanks! and yeah it probably would but since this itself took so long, I could only imagine what it would be like then when the scale would be bigger XD.
