RFscenerybuilding Releases Treviso Airport for MSFS

May 23, 2023

RFscenerybuilding has recently released their rendition of Treviso Airport (LIPH) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the city of Treviso in Italy and the neighboring towns of Venice and Padua, with a yearly average of 3 million passengers.

Built in the 1930s to meet the needs of the Treviso Air Club and inaugurated by Benito Mussolini himself, the airport only got its first passenger terminal nearly twenty years later, in 1953, the same year when Treviso got its first international flights (to London and Vienna, operated by BAE and Austrian, respectively). 

For a long time until the opening of Tessera (Venice Airport), Treviso was also the airport of choice for passengers visiting Venice. 

In 2007, the airport got a new terminal named after Antonio Canova, a famous local sculptor. It expanded its passenger handling capabilities and became Venice's de facto secondary airport, fully embraced by low-cost carriers like Ryanair. 

It's served by Ryanair (Alicante, Amman–Queen Alia, Beauvais, Berlin, Billund, Bucharest–Otopeni, Budapest, Charleroi, Cork, Crotone, Eindhoven, Fez, Hahn, Kraków, Málaga, Malta, Marrakesh, Palma de Mallorca, Porto, Poznań, Prague, Riga, Seville, Sibiu, Sofia, Tallinn, Tel Aviv, Tenerife–South, Thessaloniki, Trapani, Valencia, Vilnius, Warsaw–Modlin) and Wizz Air (Bucharest–Otopeni, Cluj-Napoca, Iași, Skopje, Suceava, Timișoara, Tirana), with a significant route network encompassing most of Europe and some of Africa. 

The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with custom buildings, custom ground textures, a true-to-life taxiway layout, custom ground clutter, and custom airport vehicles.

It's available on SimMarket for roughly $16.23, requiring at least 161.53 MB of free hard disk space to install.
