Rayo Airport/Aeropuerto de Rayo


Rayo Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto de Rayo) (IATA: RAY, ICAO: TPAR) is an airport located in south Rayo Distrito that serves the country of Rayo Par, an island about 40 miles north of the Dominican Republic (north of Laguna Redonda).

About
Rayo Airport is the only airport in the country of Rayo Par. Located in the busy capital of Rayo Distrito, the airport is a busy port for the islands due to the amount of tourists it receives. The passenger numbers at the airport have been rising tremendously over the past few years, which called for a renovation of the terminal. The airport is the main method of entrance to the island, although there is one ship port in Rayo Distrito (the was previously another in Porte Sur).

About the island
Rayo was originally captured by the Spanish, whose language is now spoken on the island. The country declared its independence from Spain in the late 1800's.
Rayo has two psuedo-islands which are connected by a land bridge. Rayo Oeste, the west 'island,' is by far the most populous and has 10 districts (cities), or distritos. Rayo Este, the east 'island,' is far smaller, with only four districts. Rayo Este is also mostly mountainous.

Runway
Rayo has only one runway, 9/27, and it is very short at just under 4,500 feet. The 9 end is preceded by the main highway and is surrounded by the mountains of Llano Monta˝osa. The 27 end drops off into the ocean. Runway 27 is used for landing and runway 9 is used for takeoffs. The runway was extended once, in 2007, to reach its current length.

Runway 9.

History
The airport was built in 1965 and was owned by the government of Rayo Par as a passenger airport, to complement the twice-daily ferries that ran between Santo Domingo and Porte Sur.
The airport was built with four gates, two facing east and two facing west. The terminal was on the side facing west. This configuration lasted until 2006, when passenger numbers started rising. FedEx was also interested in starting cargo flights. The terminal was demolished and the airport was closed for an eight-month period lasting until August 2007. The terminal had yet to be completed, but the airport decided to just make use of the completed section of the terminal. A cargo hangar was also built. The airport completed totaled five stands.

The five stands.

Airlines
Currently, Spirit Airlines and United Airlines are the only carriers at the airport. The government of Rayo Par purchased a 737-300 from US Airways and started it's own airline, named Rallas. Spirit flies to Fort Lauderdale, United flies to Washington-Dulles, and Rallas flies to Miami.

All three airlines
Previously, US Airways, WestJet, and Delta offered flights from Charlotte, Toronto, and Atlanta respectively.

US Airways previously offered service.

Delta flew 757's to Rayo, but with payload restrictions.

You can see on sign says 'Spirit' and one says 'American Airline' and there's an AA logo along with the Spirit 'digital' logo.

Nice airport, cool run down feel and Rallas Air looks pretty sketchy!

Re: Rayo Airport/Aeropuerto de Rayo

The runway is very nice and I love the detailed map, however it makes me eek when I see a US 737 stripped down.
Nice job so far!

Re: Rayo Airport/Aeropuerto de Rayo

Thanks! Sorry about the US 737, but I couldn't keep operating it plus I needed an airplane to start the national airline

Re: Rayo Airport/Aeropuerto de Rayo

I hate to be a kill-joy, but given the runway length you talk about, ALL those aircraft would be operating payload-restricted. Typical shortest runway lengths for those types (with the exception of a few unique points with special market characteristics) would be 1,800m as a minimum. Ironically the 757 would be one of the best as it has incredible runway performance.

Like the back-story though.

I know. The actual length would be about 2100ft but I think 4500 would be adequate.
