'''What is a Terminal?'''

By default, your gates are leased from airports. Leased gates are subject to airport gate capacity and per-airline limits, as well as automatic confiscation of unused gates. You can optionally choose to build or buy your own terminal at an airport to get around these limits and acquire exclusive rights to all gates in the terminal. In addition, monthly fees for gates in your own terminal are half the rate of leased gates at the same airport.

===Building a terminal===
To build a new terminal, click '''Manage Terminals''' on the left menu. Select the airport, click '''Build Terminal''', and enter the total number of gates to build in the terminal. Because all of your flights at existing leased gates will be moved to your new terminal, you must build at least the number of gates you are currently using. After reviewing the construction cost quote, click "Build Terminal" to build the terminal.
