Airport Tycoon 3 is a desktop game for users running Windows. The game, which is published by Global Star, lets players experience the challenges and goals of managing a commercial airport. The game serves as the sequel to Airport Tycoon and Airport Tycoon 2. In this installment, the player is given the task of running the largest airport in the world by solving challenges such as keeping air traffic in check and maintaining the smooth operation of logistics at the terminals of the airport.
In addition to the basic premise of managing an airport that is similar to that of its two predecessors, Airport Tycoon 3 now allows users to customize the appearance and design of their airports. However, the size of airport terminals is constant and may not be modified.
Many elements are offered by default in the game, which allows players to start managing the airport right after the program is installed. Some of these elements include prefabricated terminals, control towers that are fully equipped, land-based vehicles and airplane models at the player’s disposal, and a staff of airline employees that can commands immediately, to name a few. Additionally, players have the option to choose from over 50 airline carriers before the game tarts, all of which are based from real-life companies.
