Chudoba Design Releases Göteborg Landvetter Airport for X-Plane 11 & 12

March 23, 2023

Chudoba Design has recently released their rendition of Göteborg Landvetter Airport (ESGG) for X-Plane 11 and 12, serving the city of Gothenburg in Sweden. It’s the second largest airport in the country after Stockholm-Arlanda, averaging nearly 7 million passengers yearly.

The airport, built to replace the Torslanda Airport, was inaugurated in October 1977 by King Carl XVI Gustaf after five years of construction work. It’s located in Härryda, a municipality near Gothenburg, yet named after the neighboring administrative district (Landvetter) because it was easier to pronounce. Air traffic was launched three days later, with a SAS DC-9 being the first airplane to land on the runway. The first day of operations saw around 60 movements in total. 

Landvetter originally had two terminals, built to handle up to 3,500,000 passengers yearly. Eventually, they merged into a single terminal with eleven air bridges and many remote stands. 

It’s a focus city for Norwegian Air Shuttle, Ryanair, Scandinavian Airlines, SunClass Airlines, and TUI fly Nordic, sporting a considerable inter-European route network. The visitors’ list includes major European carriers, like Air France, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Brussels Airlines, Finnair, KLM, Lufthansa, and Swiss. 

The scenery features PBR textures, SAM integration, performance-oriented optimization, custom buildings and objects, custom jetways, accurate night lighting, and compatibility with X-Plane 11 and 12.

It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $17.25, requiring at least 1.8 GB of free hard disk space to install.
