History[]

Construction and Early Success[]

South Pole City-Metropolitan International Airport was first known as New Antarctica International Airport, after the New Antarctica Marina, which it displaced when it was built. The airport was the replacement airport for the South Pole Airstrip, which is now South Pole City-Orion Freddy Regional Airport, and closed down in 2001, due to safety concerns with the ice runway, and airport traffic concerns. The city was left without an airport for 7 years until the construction of the Metro Airport. Then, in late 2007, the name was changed to South Pole City International Airport, by a vote by the South Pole Council in 2006. After the official opening of the airport on August 7, 2006, the airport began as a hub for the former MammothAir, now SkyJet Airways, Club Penguin AirFlights and Air Antarctic the major carriers at the time, and began both domestic and international flights the following morning. After a month international carriers, also began operating from the airport as well.

The International Years (2007-2009)[]

Prior to the construction of Blizzardville International Airport, the re-opening of South Pole City-Orion Freddy Regional Airport and the opening of the reliever airport, South Pole City-Dellas International Airport,the Metro airport was called simply South Pole City International Airport. The airport was re-named due to the South Pole City Airports Act, which created the South Pole Airports Network, which therefore changed the airport's name to South Pole City-Metropolitan International Airport in 2010, when the law was finally enforced.

Accidents and Incidents[]

OnAugust 2, 2009, Penjet Express Flight 556, originated from Beachville and was to make a stop-over in South Pole City and continue on to Lichenblossom, then,when the aircraft, a Pengwing 737-800 was cruising at 30,000 feet,suddenly a large hole blew near the wings,about the size of a king size mattress,in the fuselage, then, the plane made an emergency landing in Bern Municipal Airport ,All 120 passengers and 5 crew on board had no injuries what so ever. This incident is still under investigation by the National Safety Board and the Federal Air Transport Board.

On September 15, 2009, MammothAir Flight 287 was descending into South Pole City originating from Neo Domino City , when the plane crashed into a tall hill, just 30 miles away from South Pole City International Airport's Runway 18. The aircraft was an Snowing 747-400, the aircraft has 22 crew, 20 cabin crew, two pilots and 517 passengers on board. 123 were injured and are making a full recovery. The National Safety Board has condemned the pilots flying the aircraft for" Flying too low, 6,000 ft. below a recommended height of 7,220 ft." Since the hill was 1,990 feet high, most aircraft landing at Runway 18, were to fly at an altitude of 7,220 ft., as told to the cockpit crew by South Pole Approach in the area, but during that incident, the aircraft was at a height of 1,200 ft, due to a stall while the aircraft was making a banked turn used while approaching at Runway 18, making the aircraft hit the side of the hill, thus crashing the aircraft.

On January 27, 2010, Dorkair.co.dk Flight 344, bound for Googolplex overshot the Runway upon takeoff. The aircarft was a Snowing 747-400, and had 423 passengers and 20 crew.The aircraft landed on a small road, and damaged the starboard wing and fourth engine.The accident is still under investigation, but may be because of pilot error, due to foggy conditions on that day.
