Pyingshum International Airport (Kojolese: Pyingshum Mijizággai A'éropō) is a large international airport that serves Kojo's capital Pyingshum, and also serves as a hub for most intercontinental flights to and from Kojo and its airline KojAir. Since its latest expansion the airport features 95 gates at 6 terminals.

Rail connections

The airport is a hub for regional KC and KCP trains and is also served by some IC services coming from the south towards Aku-Dyanchezi; as a result, smaller airports in cities along these IC lines such as in Kippa or Jaka have a significantly lower passenger count in relation to the population in the area they serve than airports in other parts of the country, because many travelers just take an IC train to the much larger PSM Int. Airport.

The following list lists all IC services connecting the airport; all IC services from Aku-Dyanchezi pass through the airport, and trains that don't stop here pass at speeds of up to 200 km/h.

There are no CC trains passing through or stopping at the airport.

The airports is connected to the city's Papáchē network. Routes A and C have a terminus at the airport transportation hub, which has the network number 11. That means any train of route A or C which has 11 as their direction is bound for the airport.

To make use of the spare capacity on the IC and CC services between Aku-Dyanchezi and the airport, customers heading only towards the business quarter around the station and not onward into the city centre can use the high-speed trains for the same price as the equivalent Papáchē tickets, cutting the journey time to only 11 compared to roughly 16 minutes.

Trivia

  • Terminals 1, 2, A and B do not feature a gate 13, despite having more than 13 gates. This is because of miscommunication between the government and the planning company, which applied international building recommendations that were not asked for by the authorities, amongst others to avoid the number 13, despite the number not being traditionally thought of as a number of bad luck in Kojo. It was decided against to change the plans later however, to avoid costs. Terminal 2 features a gate 213. Other gate numbers that are missing do so, because they were used for virtual bus-only gates that since there are enough landing bridges have been dismantled.
