Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras" (Greece - LGRP) 1:500 scale.

Rhodes "Diagoras" has always been a priority among my handmade airports, along with Skiathos, Santorini and Corf¨.
Skiathos is especially known for the extreme landing, airplanes passing only few meters over the spotters heads, a "Saint Marteen of the Aegean sea". The airport, with just two (three) parking stands, has been renewed few years ago adding a completely new apron with more parking stands.
Santorini is famous because airport of one of the most beautiful islands of the world, an airport where the airplanes park along two parallel rows at the apron borders, leaving the central zone for taxiing; the airplane parking stands don't have marks, just the ground crew organize the parks. Even Santorini Airport will be renewed with a reorganization of the apron and new parking stands.
Corf¨ is, probably, the second most important Greek leisure airport after Rhodes, an important charter/leisure traffic and the apron is really particular, with the Greek feature to have slanted parking stands with the tail section of the airplanes facing the terminal building. Even Corf¨ will be reorganized by Fraport-Greece with a new terminal building, a new apron and new parking stands.
Rhodes Airport was similar to Corf¨, even if bigger and with more traffic: similar terminal building, similar apron and similar airplane parking stands. I was ready to realize the apron but then, spending a holiday week at Rhodes, i was amazed to look at the new apron: Fraport-Greece already changed the airport with a reorganization of the apron, new parking stands, different service road. Now the airplanes park in front of the terminal building, the nose section facing the terminal windows; there are 16 parking stands in front of the terminal building (two of them are slanted) and 6 parking stands parallel to the runway, behind the "internal" taxiway.
The taxiway before closed because of the widebody parking stand now can be used, there are two apron taxiways instead of a single central one.
Unfortunately there aren't updated Jeppesen charts, available maps or other infos about the new apron/parking stands.
Even using Google Maps or Bing Maps the satellite vision is old or not available (Google Maps obscured all Greek airports because in Greece the airports are under military rules):
Google Maps



Bing Maps



This was Rhodes Airport before the reorganization, few days ago:



These are Fraport-Greece sketches for the new airport:



the apron is intuitive but there aren't enough infos for those, like me, building almost perfect replica of the real airports!



I realized some sketches of Rhodes, before to know it has been updated:



This is (was) the incredibly difficult apron grid:



These the airlines serving Rhodes Airport:

Re: Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras" (Greece - LGRP) 1:500 scale.

Sad not to have help from you, fellow collectors, just for the reason that sharing infos is beautiful and useful, but i imagine you did not find latest news and projects of this airport.
Anyway i am using the videos i have realized, despite the fact that in Greece each airport is military place, even the civil airports.
I am recreating Rhodes new apron and especially the parking stands, marks, taxiways and service road watching the videos.

I honestly have no idea what Rhodes Airport looks like, so I'm sorry I can't be of help hence why I didn't comment.

Re: Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras" (Greece - LGRP) 1:500 scale.

Here Rhodes "Diagoras" as i recreated from videos, Fraport-Greece sketches and intuition: it is clearly much different from the old Rhodes, with a completely new apron and parking stands.
I realized even the terminal building.

Re: Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras" (Greece - LGRP) 1:500 scale.

I can't wait to receive the two Novair A321neo's, Laudamotion A320 and, why not, maybe Volotea or neos or Blue Panorama or Jet2holidays or JetTime...i continue to hope herpa will announce more leisure/charter airlines.
All traffic essential for these European holiday airports.

Great attention to detail Charter, looks like that would have been alot of effort to create the layout. Agree it would be great if we had a few more leisure airlines, or a A320 Aegean would be great for these type of airports.

Looks very good indeed. I like how you keep expanding your workings by making custom terminals as well!

Thanks my friend.
I swear i will no more complaint if Herpa will realize JetTime B737-700WL, ASL Airlines France B737-700WL, Aegean A320WL, Volotea B717, TUI Airways B737-800WL, Blue Panorama B737-800WL, neos B737-800WL, Jet2holidays B737-800WL or B757-200WL, Arkia A321LR or B757-300WL, Aviolet B737-300, easyJet A320WL.
So, according to the fact that Herpa will never produce B737-300's, unfortunately i will never stop to complaint.

Thanks dear Thom, i am very happy for the result of buidling Terminals by my own, trying to recreate them similar to the real ones.

Anyway, even if i am satisfied of this layout i am not sure the new Rhodes is really this.
For this reason i decided to realize also the "old" apron with old parking stands.
Even my friend Guido, flying for Thomas Cook with a leased A321 (Avion Express LY-VEC), still doesn't know the new Rhodes apron + parking stands. He told me the traffic at Rhodes is incredible, full of charter and leisure airlines. And i am a bit disappointed of the new more modern airport: in my opinion it is the same of eurowhite vs original liveries, old chaotic busy Rhodes is/was original, the new Rhodes realized by Fraport-Greece is similar to the "politically correct" eurowhite liveries.

Re: Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras" (Greece - LGRP) 1:500 scale.

Does he not have any updated charts (by Jepessen for example)?

It doesn't, Jeppesen produced Rhodes charts regarding the old apron; the new apron has been opened to the traffic few months ago.

I like the ground markings that you are making. This looks like another exciting airport to follow--great work!
