Hexagonia City Bassam International Airport (WAAT: HCB, ANACA: MTHC) is an international airport six miles south of Hexagonia City, Cinq Îles, Tigeria, near Bassam. It has flights to points in Tarephia and Antarephia, and is a major gateway to Ereva, Kartumia, and Uletha.

The airport serves Hexagonia City and the governorate of Cinq Îles. It is located on Lointaine Island six miles south of Hexagonia City. The airport serves as a hub for Nimiri Halaban Air Tigris (the flag carrier of Tigeria) and Nimiri Halaban Freight Lines.

Owing to its long runways and to it's central position on the Straits of Lyc in the Tarephias, the airport is one of the few on the Straits of Lyc that can handle long-distance cargo operations. Thus, Hexagonia City is a popular stopover for transcontinental cargo flights.

The airport's slogan is "La Tigrisie, les Tarephies, et toi."

History

Hexagonia City Bassam International Airport was designed as a replacement for the former Hexagonia City International Airport (commonly known as Ao Lam Airport). Located on the hilly north side of Yontiaus Island, Ao Lam had limited room for expansion. In addition, noise mitigation measures restricted nighttime flights, as severe noise pollution affected hundreds of thousands of people in Hexagonia City's downtown.

After a series of studies, the government of Hexagonia City identified the south side of Lointaine Island as a possible airport replacement site. Flight paths would be routed over the Bight of Tigeria instead of populous urban areas.

Runways

HCB has adopted a noise abatement procedures program to reduce noise while flying in and out of the airport. During the day (0630 to 0000), the airport follows the "Easterly Operations" plan, named for the prevailing east winds. Under this plan, departing aircraft take off towards the east, and arriving aircraft approach from the west. During night hours (0000 to 0630), the airport follows "East-In East-Out Operations" to reduce noise from arriving aircraft. Under "East-In East-Out", departing aircraft continue to take off towards the east, but arriving aircraft approach from the east unless weather conditions or reduced visibility require an approach from the west.

Under normal operations, the airport can accommodate up to 45 arrivals per hour.
