Store: Expansion

Airports is the 10th expansion pack for Cities: Skylines. It was announced on 2021-12-10[1] and was released on 2022-01-25 alongside the Vehicles of the World and Content Creator Pack Map Pack CCPs, as well as the Calm the Mind Radio and On Air Radio music pack DLCs.

Expansion features[edit | edit source]

The Airports expansion allows you to build your own airport areas, set up gates and connect them via concourse networks. Design your dream airports, from small airfields to large international hubs.

  • Modular Airport Building: Place and design your airport, connecting its various buildings by using concourse networks.
  • Airport Progression: If your airport gets the approval of business travelers and tourists alike, you’ll be rewarded with expanded building options and bigger airplanes, creating a boon for the local travel industry.
  • Public transport: Make life easier for would-be travelers by placing dedicated airport buildings, allowing you to connect your airport to the city through base game transport types like bus, metro, and train stations.
  • Cargo Air Traffic: Tired of hiding your cargo terminals by themselves on the outskirts of your city? Create cargo terminals that are connected to the larger airport complex that fit in visually with other airport buildings, eliminating the need for older eyesores while hauling in new goods and materials.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Airports is the first major expansion that does not add any new district policies.
  • The old planes are classified as medium planes, so they can use Medium Aircraft Stands. Due to this, the new medium planes in this DLC can use the old airports. Both of these are also true for cargo planes, Cargo Aircraft Stands, and the old cargo airports from the Industries DLC.
