Alternate Airports

Pilots should always search for & file an alternative airport.

Recommended company alternate airports are specified on the flight dispatch page under the Crew Centre for all our flights. However, if you are flying a tour flight or non-schedule flight, you may need to search and enter an alternate airport on your flight plan yourself.

In the real world, legislation gives some exemptions from this (such as during certain good weather conditions, multiple runways & short flights) however, most real-world carriers make it policy to always file alternatives.
