Orbx Releases Banja Luka International Airport for MSFS
Orbx has recently released their rendition of Banja Luka International Airport (LQBK) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with a yearly average of 460,719 passengers as of 2023.
Construction started in 1976, and the airport was initially part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, operating as a strictly domestic airport for many years. After the Bosnian War and the creation of Republika Srpska, Banja Luka was established as the capital, and the airport was granted international status and opened for civilian traffic in 1997.
The airport underwent heavy upgrade work between 2002 and 2003 for Pope John Paul II's visit in June 2003.
Aegean Airlines (seasonal), Air Cairo (seasonal), Air Serbia, Freebird Airlines (seasonal), Nouvelair (seasonal), Ryanair, Tailwind Airlines (seasonal), and WizzAir currently serve it.
Developed by indie Radoslav Tucakov, the scenery features fully custom terminals and buildings, interior details, exquisite perimeter details, a custom village and air base near the airport, PBR texturing, and more.
It's available on OrbxDirect for roughly $9.78, requiring at least 1.35 GB of free hard disk space to install.
