Club Penguin City International Airport (ACAO code: CPC), also known as Club Penguin International Airport, as an international airport serving Club penguin, the communities of King Geoge's Island and their area. Previously located at Kingston, the airport shifted location to an offshore island a few kilometers away due to space constraints on the mainland, which had 4 terminals and 3 runways. The new airport has 5 terminals and 5 runways, with a capacity of 110 million a year. In 2013, 83 million passed through the airport, prompting local authorities consider building a new sixth terminal, which will have a capacity of 25 million. With this capacity, the 2 feeder airports at the Amherty and Harborfront can be closed and the land can be redeveloped. The airport is a major transiting point to the island of Latin Antarctica, Wedell and Sub-Antarctica, and is a hub for CP Airways, Skyjet Airways and SAIA.
The airport will from 2014 serve as the final stop on the Trans-Continental Air Cargo Route
Prior to 2008, to get to King George's Island and Club Penguin, penguins had to take ferries to the islands from the mainland. As Club Penguin and Club Penguin City grew in size, the ferries started to get congested, and the South Pole Council decided to give funding to the government of the Sub-Antarctic Islands to build an international island. Several areas were considered, such as a new proposed server called ACP (not to be confused with the snowball fight army), Snow Island, Amherty on KGI and Kingston on KGI. Eventually, Kingston was chosen, and work started in 2006, finishing in 2008. To connect the mainland with the island and airport, Highway 3, a controversial highway that connected all the islands of the Sub Antarctic to the Antarctic Peninsula, Trans Antarctica and South Pole City, via (ironically for the Sub Antarctic portion) ferries, was opened.
The airport officially opened on the 22nd of June 2008, with the first flight being Club Penguin AirFlights Flight 008 touching down at 3:48pm from Penguinville, Polaris SAD. The airport had 4 terminals and 3 runways, and had a capacity of 70 million a year
As many airlines began to move into Club Penguin City International Airport, air traffic and delays became a problem. It began to have an environmental impact due to aircraft circling around the city waiting for clearance. It also lowered property values in the city due to noise, and pollution issues. Therefore, the government announced a plan for a new airport on North Kings Island, a small uninhabited island to the north of the airport. In 2010, a former USA Air Force air base was converted into Club Penguin City-Amherty Regional Airport, located in the town of Amherty, and provided an alternative for regional short-haul flights,as well as to cargo airlines as well. 2011 also saw the opening of a second feeder airport - Club Penguin City-Harborfront International Airport. Several airlines moved to the airports, but this created little relief for the overcrowded airport.
In 2014, the new airport on North Kings Island was complete, replacing the old airport which was handling double it's capacity. Terminals 1 through 3 opened on January 2 2014, marking the move of SkyJet Airways, Club Penguin AirFlights and CP Airways to the airport. All other airlines at the airport moved a week later on January 10 to Terminal 4, which had 3 concourses. Finally, the airlines at the Amherty and Harborfront airports moved in on March 1 to Terminal 5, which had 2 concourses, one and a half months after its planned opening on January 16.
