KANSAS CITY, MO. – MetroAir Virtual Airlines announced today that from May 1st there will be a full new set of schedules in operation at their FLL focus city. These changes are part of there ongoing efforts to bring  pilots the best possible service and realism. For many months it has been common knowledge amongst the ops team that they had more schedules operating out of FLL than they had available gate space.

The changes at FLL include new domestic departure gates, more intonational departure gates, 7 cities served from FLL being removed and in total a 32% reduction in service to the airport. The changes will enable the airline to bring back realism element to the gate management and give them the opportunity to further expand to existing cities or new cities in the future.

“So what are they losing” I hear you all ask, we’ll we will see reduction in service to the following Destinations: Barbados, Cancun, Dallas Fort Worth,  Jacksonville, Montego Bay,  New Orleans, Punta Cana, Nassau and St Maarten.

The following cities will be lost from FLL:
