Punta Arenas is a small to medium sized city located in the southernmost parts of Chile. The city has very low business ratings that never exceed 100, but have higher tourism ratings that fall in the moderate range of between 100 and 200. Punta Arenas is only available in Air Tycoon Online 2.

Airport

The default airport here is Presidente Carlos Ibanez del Campo International Airport (PUQ).

Trivia

The airport is named after Carlos Ibanez del Campo, a Chilean Army Officer who served as President twice, first between 1927 and 1931 and then another from 1952 to 1958.

Strategy

Punta Arenas tends to get more popular than it should be, but not much. Low ratings means revenue made from routes from and to the city will be limited, especially for cargo routes. Competition range from virtually non-existent to very light, but the city will not be able to sustain it. Punta Arenas is in a very isolated position. There are no routes to make from the city to any more cities to the south. There are, however, a few good cities to the north of the continent such as Santiago, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. A popular use of Punta Arenas is as a stopover between cities from South America to Oceania (e.g. Sydney and Wellington) or Asia (e.g. Singapore and Denpasar). Beginners are not advised to fly many flights to this city due to the low ratings as this will limit growth of airlines that are based here.

Presidente Carlos Ibanez del Campo International Airport will usually never get upgraded beyond its initial status of level 2 due to the very weak demand for slots. This also makes any additional airports useless. As such, players are advised to never consider this city when building or buying airports if credits are valued.

Large capacity planes are not recommended for routes to this city. Expensive long ranged planes are also discouraged except in the case when the city acts as a stopover between two large cities as the limited number of slots that the planes can fly between the two cities are very limited. Good long ranged planes that are good to use are the Boeing 767, Airbus A330 and the McDonnell Douglas MD-11. When flying to large cities, medium sized planes are recommended and great examples are the Boeing 757, Airbus A310 and the Lockheed L-1011. Flights to small and medium sized cities should be serviced by small capacity planes such as the Boeing 737, Bombardier CRJ Family and the Embraer E-Jet.
