  • Two North Antarctica airports are missing

    Antarctica is a challenging place to fly to. So far there has been no airports here on the Radar visible. Finally IATA: OOO ICAO: AT27 Troll Airfield (scientefic flight only), has got its "blue pin". But there is two other airports that recieve even passenger jets, even with tourists, departing Punta Arenas in Chile with BAe-146/RJ85/RJ100 aircrafts, that in my opinion should have also blue pins. These are Base Marambio IATA: -- ICAO: SAWB (the base itself is a round the year operating "city") and the other is Isla Jorge Rey, Teniente R. Marsh Airport, IATA: TNM ICAO: SCRM. Even there is perhaps no tracking currently, it is obvious that such could by the permanent stations be arranged, if they get first the "blue pin" on the radar.
