There are three main points of ground vehicle entry to the airport - the first is through the underground parking lot which terminates behind the control tower where the helicopters are; the others are through two direct freight ramps in the center of the airport, one leading to the runway, the other to the hangars. One note: the gates governing these points of entry are only accessible once the player has passed [[Flying School]] and is considered a pilot. Through ingenuity, the player can access the tarmac, but all aircraft are locked until pilot status is achieved, with the exception of the [[Maverick]] in the area near the hangars.

This airport, as aforementioned, is modeled after San Francisco International Airport, which is located several miles south of the city. The main landing strip of Easter Bay Airport (pictured) extends out into [[Easter Bay]], a distinguishing feature of San Francisco International Airport, whose main tarmac extends into San Francisco Bay. The airport is situated on an artificial island connected to the mainland by a small land bridge that provides the only road access.

Easter Bay location

Easter Bay International Airport is based on real-life San Francisco International Airport (SFO). It is located in San Fierro, San Andreas, and is the largest airport in the state. It is situated at the southeastern corner of the city, just east of Foster Valley and a major freeway, and just south of Easter Basin. From here, the player can purchase Juank Air flights to and from Los Santos International Airport and Las Venturas Airport, but no flights actually take off or land without the player instigating it. As befits a busy airport, there are numerous aircraft parked in various locations, and Baggage carts trundling about.

There are three main points of ground vehicle entry to the airport - the first is through the underground parking lot which terminates behind the control tower where the helicopters are; the others are through two direct freight ramps in the center of the airport, one leading to the runway, the other to the hangars. One note: the gates governing these points of entry are only accessible once the player has passed Flying School and is considered a pilot. However, the player can simply jump over the security cabin or park a car and jump from the car roof to the fence or by making a ramp with a Packer and drive over the fence. Through ingenuity, the player can access the tarmac, but all aircraft are locked until pilot status is achieved, with the exception of the Maverick in the area near the hangars.

This airport, as aforementioned, is modeled after San Francisco International Airport, which is located several miles south of the city. The main landing strip of Easter Bay Airport (pictured) extends out into Easter Bay, a distinguishing feature of San Francisco International Airport, whose main tarmac extends into San Francisco Bay. The airport is situated on an artificial island connected to the mainland by a small land bridge that provides the only road access.

Events in Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

The airport plays a role in two missions. In the mission Mike Toreno, Carl and T-Bone Mendez track Mike Toreno in a yay van in the airport. Carl destroys it, and heads back to the pleasure domes in Battery Point. In the mission Ran Fa Li, Carl picks up a package from a Manana inside the parking lot of the airport, and has to take it back to a garage in Esplanade North, all while constantly being confronted by the Da Nang Boys, fierce rivals of the San Fierro Triads.

TriviaEdit

  • In the beta version the landing area was smaller.
  • No aircraft ever take off or land at the airport, despite the fact that many different planes can be seen flying over various parts of San Andreas.
  • There is an alternative way of getting inside the airport if you aren't a pilot, even though there are many more possibilities. This way can be done by going to a ridge that is located in Red County to the left of Easter Bay Chemicals. The ridge is extremely close to the airport so using almost any car, one can drive the car off the ridge and land in the airport.

  • There is another ramp that can give access to the airport if you are not a pilot, though this way you will need a fast vehicle or a fast motorcycle. The ramp is located to the right of the bridge that connects Red County and The Panopticon, east of Easter Bay Chemicals.
