Here is another airport to guess:

Good guesses. But, not correct. You are guessing in the right country though.

To make it clear this games uses STATUE MILES (mi) not nautical miles.


Here's one:

Correct! TAS must be the most centrally located major airport on Eurasia.

Quoting j0rdan (Reply 3):
YFB

Correct again! The very far north YFB gets some interesting diversions due to its location on the Europe-West Coast route.

Yes, thanks for clarifying that.

Some clues:
Geographically isolated, secretive, and strategic. Plus, it is only 2888 miles to KBL and 3349 miles to BGW.

Correct! Diego Garcia, located in the Indian Ocean south of the Maldives, is a very strategic, restricted-access airport for the U.S./U.K. military. Yet, I doubt most Americans/British have ever heard of it.

   Oops! I mean JNB as 5167mi as you noted, sorry about that.

But otherwise    the airport was DYU/UTDD Dushanbe, the main gateway to Tajikistan.
