Firstly, my apologies for rehashing an older topic.
I’d like to get a firmer understanding of why transfers aren’t permitted at YTZ, beyond “too much work/detail”. I’ve been playing AS for a couple of years now, so I do understand the game fairly well.
As a point of comparison, a number of other 4 bar airports permit transfers. I appreciate the difference in “airport size”, but the argument that there should be a cutoff based on passenger numbers is simply unsupported in real life.
Representing Toronto City (2.8 million pax/year) as an airport prohibiting transfers is at odds with transfers being permitted at airports including Eugene (1.1 million pax/year), Fresno (1.3 million pax/year) etc… the list goes on.
Obviously, YTZ is much smaller in area, and hence has a smaller airport size, but Porter uses the airport for connections quite successfully. The short runway length prohibits most aircraft larger than 80 seats simulated in AS from using the airport anyway, so I don’t see the aircraft size growing beyond what’s realistic.
Porter has won a decent market share in the past years with their easier connections through YTZ in comparison to YYZ, and they’re especially popular for people connecting to northern Ontario.
Is the transfer hard coded into some airport size restriction?
Thanks for explaining this restriction more thoroughly.
