Königsreh–Albert Polschnitz Airport (Hesurian: Flughafen Königsreh–Albert–Polschnitz, IATA: KGR, ICAO: KRAP), also known as Königsreh Airport, is the largest international airport in Mascylla and one of the busiest airports in Erdara. Opened in 1969 and built in its current state in 1992, it is located 14 km (8 mi) northeast of Königsreh. The airport is named after Albert Polschnitz (1890–1976), one of the key opposition leaders during the Mascyllary Revolution, co-founder of the Crowned Republic of Mascylla and Minister of the Realm from 1945 to 1961.

Königsreh–Albert Polschnitz Airport lies within portions of the surrounding Kreise of Sankt Höhge, Flammenberg and Güstrow, still within the borders of Königsreh as a whole. It functions as the main principal hub for Maskillea Airlines and a destination for other main carriers, as well as a focus city for various high-cost and low-cost carriers such as Erdarair, Esera, and Skytrain. The airport covers an area of 2,300 hectares (5,683 acres) of land and features two passenger terminals with a capacity of approximately 35 million passengers per year, three runways and extensive logistics and maintenance facilities. The airport and its adjacent infrastructure is operated and managed by KönigsrAIR Group under the brand Königsreh Flughafen.

According to statistics from 2018, the airport handled 31,983,405 passengers and recorded 460,192 aircraft movements, thus making it the busiest airport in Mascylla and one of the busiest airports in Erdara in terms of passenger numbers. In terms of cargo traffic passing through, Königsreh–Albert Polschnitz Aiport is one of the busiest airports regionally as well, with handling 980,311 metric tonnes of cargo in 2013. As of 2018, the airport offers direct flights to every Iraian country, and more than 70 destinactions on five continents. Markus Groß has been the director-manager of the airport since his appointment on 27 July 2016.

Incidents and accidents

  • 14 August 1979: the Lilienwald air disaster was a mid-air collision between Interflug Flight 662, a Be-185 from Lannbrück to Rakonitz, and DAT Flight 21 from Ulich to Königsreh, over the border between Mascylla and Lilienburg. Main causes of the collision were pilot error when trying to avoid the crash and the confusion of the air traffic control regarding the locations of the planes involved. The worst aviation accident in Lilienburgish history and the world's deadliest mid-air collision, it killed all 281 people on board both planes.
  • 29 April 1984: during take-off of Interflug Flight 436 the right turbine exploded, after progressing metal fatigue of some its fan blades caused them to shatter and be sucked into the turbine. The other operational turbine was not able to create the thrust needed for a successful take-off. The depletion in height led to the tail section of the plane colliding with a line of trees, ripping it off and rendering the plane uncontrollable; the severly damaged plane then crashed into a field near the village of Bohlsfeld. The accident, also known as the disaster of Bohlsfeld, was the single deadliest aviation accident on Mascyllary soil, killing 251 people and crew on board and 3 farmers on the ground.
  • 15 June 2014: Skytrain Flight 252, a C858-300 (registration MB-25M), operating a flight between Pokrovsk and Königsreh, caught fire just before take-off due to an electric arc caused by overloading of the wiring by the newly-installed in-flight entertainment system. The fire was located only 12 minutes after take-off, at which point it had already reached the cabin, as well as the middle fuel tank, and had caused major damage to the hydraulic and electrical systems of the plane. During an attempt to turn the aircraft back to Pokrovsk, the crew lost control at an altitude of 1900 meters, after which the plane crashed in a forest. All 294 passengers and 15 flight crew died in the incident, making it the worst incident in the history of Skytrain.
