MagMexico Releases Tijuana International Airport for MSFS
MagMexico has recently released their rendition of Tijuana International Airport (MMTJ) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the San Diego-Tijuana transborder agglomeration with a yearly average of 12.3 million passengers.
It was inaugurated in 1951 as “Aeropuerto Federal de Tijuana,” with a 2000-meter long runway and a single passenger terminal, that was eventually replaced in 1970 by a much bigger one, part of a $8.7 million project that also included a runway lengthening.
In the 1980s, Tijuana was the fastest-growing city in Mexico, which led to further expansions in that decade.
The airport was privatized in 1995, becoming part of the Pacific Airport Group, which consists of 12 airports, with its headquarters in Guadalajara.
Under the new helm, it was expanded and renovated in 2002, with many changes to accommodate the Boeing 747. By then, Tijuana was one of the most important airports in Mexico.
A cross-border express bridge was inaugurated in late 2015, allowing passengers to access the airport directly from the United States, with a North American terminal.
Aeroméxico, American Eagle, Calafia Airlines, Mexicana de Aviación, Viva Aerobus, and Volaris serve the airport.
The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with PBR textures, animated jetways, dynamic lighting, detailed hangars and buildings, custom ground textures, precise AFCAD, static aircraft and vehicles, animated radar facilities, native volumetric grass and vegetation, and more.
It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $21.26, requiring at least 1.24 GB of free hard disk space to install.
