As Platinum Airways’ Peak Traffic Destination of the Week Series, that visits airports close to the world’s highest mountains, is in its final week, the Open Skies airline announces that it is to be revisited. However, Peak Traffic Revisited will be completely different: the March series airports will take pilots to four airports that are the world’s busiest in their respective category.
Whilst the original Peak Traffic series focused on the word peak, Peak Traffic Revisited pays more attention to the word traffic. Platinum Airways’ March DOTW series will stop at four extremely busy airports that claim top spot in four different categories of traffic. The series’ first destination is Van Nuys Airport (KVNY) near Los Angeles, the world’s busiest general aviation traffic movements airport. From there, we will travel to London’s Heathrow Airport (EGLL), the world’s leading airport in terms of international passengers. The third Peak Traffic Revisited airport is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (KATL), by far the world’s busiest from a general traffic movements perspective. We end the series with the world’s busiest airport during a special event: Wittman Regional Airport aka Oshkosh (KOSH), with its annual airshow, the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
DOTW missions qualify for a 5% bonus if completed within the allotted time span. They come with charts, links to scenery files for FS2004, FSX and X-Plane if available, and a selection of YouTube videos.
About Platinum Airways:
Keen to deliver on its mission to keep the fun in the hobby, Platinum Airways is probably the only virtual airline to combine an Open Skies policy, allowing its pilots to fly any mission of their choice with the aircraft of their choice at the time of their choice, with a strategic hub network. The carefully selected hubs, Newark (KEWR), Dallas-Fort Worth (KDFW), Vancouver (CYVR), Perth (YPPH) and Brussels (EBBR), should be attractive to a global membership. In addition, Platinum Airways offers its pilots an often cheeky Destination of the Week, Relief, Military and Cargo missions and a soon to be launched Flight Dispatch division. Sticking to the KISS principle (Keep It Straight and Simple), Platinum Airways hosts an active forum and a screen shot of the week competition, with the winner providing the main picture on its home page for the next week.
