Orbx Teases Gold Coast Airport for MSFS

Orbx has published a teaser thread on their forums showcasing Matteo Veneziani’s work on their upcoming rendition of Gold Coast Airport (YBCG) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, the seventh busiest airport in Australia.

It was initially built as an airstrip (Coolangatta Airstrip) in the 1930s, being heavily used by the Australian Royal Air Force during World War 2.

Post-war saw its return to civilian use, progressively expanding to meet the ever-growing demands for passenger traffic in the region, especially in the 50s and 60s.

International status was granted in the 1980s after they had built its current terminal (Eric Robinson Building), inaugurated by acting Prime Minister Douglas Anthony. The airport was serving up to 650,000 passengers yearly at that point.

The main terminal was expanded to 27,000 square meters in 2010, doubling its size, adding 40 check-in desks, and incorporating domestic and international operations. It houses Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin Australia, Rex, Air New Zealand, and Scoot.

There’s no information about the pricing or a potential release date, but Threshold will keep you informed!
