RDPresets Announces Salzburg Airport for MSFS
RDPresets has recently announced their rendition of Salzburg Airport Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (LOWS) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving Salzburg, Austria, with a yearly average of 300,000 passengers.
Salzburg Airport was a race track when the first powered aircraft taxied on its surface in 1910. Sixteen years later, Lufthansa inaugurated a route from Munich to Bad Reichenhall with a stop in Salzburg. Austrian Aviation AG followed suit a year later with a Vienna-Salzburg-Innsbruck route.
The Luftwaffe seized it in 1939, where it was used by the Luftgaukommando VII and routinely visited by the Messerschmitt Me 262 during its development phase. The United States Air Force heavily bombed the city in 1944 (15 air raids), but the airport somehow remained undamaged. It was the first Austrian airport to return to scheduled traffic after WW2.
A new control tower was built in 1958, and a new passenger terminal was opened in 1966.
It’s a hub for Eurowings Europe and is served by Air France, British Airways, easyJet, Finnair, Lufthansa, Ryanair, Transavia, TUI Airways, and Wizz Air. Most of them only operate seasonally.
The scenery will feature an accurate rendition of the airport, with high-detail buildings, interiors, 3D people, custom ground textures, and more.
The release date is scheduled for Saturday (10/02). The pricing isn’t known yet.
