Cyra Underwood Municipal Airport (CYR) is an airport located in the city of Cyra in the eastern Old World. The airport has two terminals, with Terminal 1 servicing IntraAir and Eastern Airways and Terminal 2 servicing Viaggio.
In late 2014, when the airport ban was lifted on the old world, Skelezomperman convinced kiwirainbow, one of the mayors of Cyra, to sign an agreement saying he would not build an airport in Cyra, so that Crystal City could hold a monopoly on air traffic in the area through Crystal City Municipal Airport. Despite the city's notability and prominence on the Old World, it never had an airport to connect it to the server's fast-growing flight network for two years.
In August 2016, IntraAir and Eastern Airways formed the Eastra Development Corporation, to identify notable areas of the old world that were lacking in airports, in order to expand the flight networks of both airlines to previously non-served areas.
Cyra was chosen as the first town for the Eastra Development Corporation to consider, and plans were formulated to develop the airport in the northeastern area of the city. Co-mayor kiwirainbow was reluctant to approve the airport, due to the agreement he had signed with Skelezomperman; however, while stopping short of giving a "yes", would not say "no" under the condition that the other co-mayor, unjinz, approved, upon the condition that his airline, Viaggio, receive gates at the new airport. unjinz approved the airport, leading the Eastra Development Corporation to begin construction.
The airport began construction with Terminal 1, along the airport roadway. The terminal was built to consist of two check-in areas on each side, one for IntraAir and one for Eastern Airways, and two long concourses were built perpendicular to the roadside portion of the terminal, with A and B gates for IntraAir and Eastern Airways, respectively. A separate Terminal 2, complete with its own check-in area and security checkpoint, was built for Viaggio, and is split into C gates adjacent to the terminal, and D gates across from the terminal, connected to the terminal via a shuttle. Each terminal was built with its own runway, with the Terminal 1 runway parallel to the road bridge carrying I-3 south into Cyra and the Terminal 2 runway along the eastern world border south of the terminal.
There are three entrance points to the airport. IntraAir passengers enter at the west end of Terminal 1, Eastern Airways passengers enter at the east end of Terminal 1, and Viaggio passengers enter at Terminal 2. Each entrance has its own check-in and security checkpoint, and is marked with the airline it serves.
There are check-ins located at each entrance, corresponding to the sponsoring airline. The check-ins are split between general and priority lanes and counters. Priority passengers have a shorter line and can check-in at dedicated counters.
Following check-in, all passengers proceed to security, where they are screened for travel. A unique aspect of this airport is that priority passengers are screened separately, for extra fast screening.
In each concourse, there are seating areas next to the gates for passengers to wait for their flights. Each gate has a desk with information regarding the flight at that gate. There are two boarding lanes at each gate, one for priority passengers and one for all other passengers. At each gate there is a walkway from the terminal which goes to the stairs up to the plane. In Terminal 2, the D gates can be accessed by a shuttle from the terminal.
