Utica's Airports

Utica has a total of three airports, Utica International, Utica Regional North and Utica Regional South. All three of them are aligned so that no plane has to fly over Utica itself and all three have direct tramway connections into the city's network. All three are also far outside of the city.

Utica and the fifty kilometers around it, form one large Air Exclusion Zone, like over all major cities in the Sultanate. Flying over it without a special permission will result in a fine and in being either forced to land or shot down.
