Sierrasim Simulation Releases José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport v2 for MSFS

Sierrasim has recently released an updated version of their rendition of José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport (SEGU) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the city of Guayaquil in Ecuador with a yearly average of 3.7 million passengers.

The airport was inaugurated in October 1937 as a small airfield, initially serving as a military base.

Sixty-six years later, the airport administration made plans to build a new terminal and extend the runway, both deemed too small for the city’s needs. At first, they had agreed to build a 28,000-square-meter terminal for international flights while using the old terminal for domestic operations. But later, they settled on a bigger terminal for both, occupying 50,000 square meters.

The current terminal can handle up to 5 million passengers a year. Once it reaches its maximum capacity, there are plans to build a new airport 20km from the city.

It’s a hub for Avianca Ecuador and LATAM Ecuador, flying people to many destinations in Latin and North America. The visitors’ list includes American Airlines, Copa Airlines, Iberia, JetBlue, KLM, and Spirit.

The scenery features improvements on all airport models (compared to V1), high-quality PBR textures, custom jetways, terminal interiors, new apron and airport lights, cargo terminal improvements, improved ground textures, and more.

It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $18.48, requiring at least 845.02MB of free hard disk space to install. V1 owners are entitled to a free upgrade.
