MM Simulations Teases Liège Airport for MSFS
April 9, 2023
MM Simulations has recently teased the progress on their rendition of Liège Airport (EBLG) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, the 5th biggest cargo airport in Europe and 22nd in the World.
Originally a military airfield, it was used by the Germans during World War II as a base for their Luftwaffe aircraft. After the war, the Belgian Air Force used the airport until the 1960s, when it was converted into a commercial airport. In the 1980s, Liège Airport became known for its cargo operations and became a major European freight transport hub. Today, the airport is one of the largest cargo airports in the World, handling over 900,000 tons of goods each year and serving as a vital link in the global supply chain.
TUI fly Belgium is the only airline offering scheduled flights to and from Liège, with routes to Alicante, Gran Canaria, Málaga, and Tenerife-South. The traffic figures sit at less than 400,000 passengers yearly.
The developers have been showcasing the scenery on their Facebook page, with many screenshots of the terminal interior, cargo area, and some of the cargo apron. A selection of these screenshots will be posted alongside this article.
