Hamilton is a small to medium sized island city located in the western part of USA on the island of Bermuda, UK. The city has moderate to high tourism ratings that range between 150 and 250. Business ratings fall in the low to moderate range of around 50 to 150.
The default airport here is L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA).
The airport was formerly known as Bermuda International Airport. In 2007, the airport was renamed to its current name in honour of L. Frederick Wade, who was the leader of the Progressive Labour Party in Bermuda.
Having a moderate to high tourism rating may be a good thing for starter airlines. If a player plays his cards right, such as opening passenger routes to large cities whenever possible. Hamilton can be a great city to start in. It's location allows players to connect to cities in North America (e.g New York and Charlotte) and Europe (e.g London and Frankfurt). Competition in this city is also virtually unheard of as the city is not very popular for many players. However, the city's ability to sustain competition is very limited. Cargo operations in and out of this city is not recommended due to it's relatively low business ratings.
L.F.Wade International Airport usually attains a status of level 2 and sometimes a level 3, but it will not go any higher than that. For this reason, buying over the airport from the national government is not advised as it will not be worth the credits spent. Since the primary airport is more than enough to meet the slot demand in this city, having additional airports are a waste of cash and credits. Therefore, it should not be built by any players.
Aircraft flying into or out of this city should, besides having high satisfaction, have a medium to large capacity when flying from large cities (e.g Boeing 767, Douglas DC-8 and Airbus A300) and small to medium capacity when flying to similar sized cities as Hamilton (e.g Boeing 707, Airbus A320 and Lockheed L-1011). For cargo operations, aircraft should be restricted to the small capacity planes such as the Boeing 737F and Airbus A310F in order to minimise maintenance costs and depreciation.
