Today developer MS Games released a new trailer for its upcoming simulation game AirportSim. 

The trailer, which celebrates the upcoming showing of the game at Steam Next Fest (which will happen between February 6 and February 13), provides a look at the activities you have to perform in this simulator that shows airport operations from a different perspective from the usual flight sim. 

You play as a ground handler, and you have to take care of loading, refueling, and all of these activities that ensure that aircraft turn around and depart on time. Funnily, the trailer shows what not to do with luggage, but it's certainly funny that you can.

You can check it out below.

The demo, which will be released bright and early on February 6, will provide a look at a tutorial scenario at the remote Vágar Airport in the Faroe Islands, including the demonstrations of the game's mechanics on the Boeing 737 MAX-8 airliner. These activities include securing an aircraft after arrival at the gate, ground power hook-up procedures, passenger stairs docking procedures, and baggage de-loading.

It's worth mentioning that Microsoft Flight Simulator users may find some of the environments very familiar, as MS Games is working with popular scenery creator MK Studios, which has made some of the airports included in the game. 

Besides Vágar, the final game will include Keflavik Airport, Warsaw Chopin Airport, and Key West Airport, with more to come via DLC. The Airbus A320 Neo will also be available to handle.

AirportSim is releasing in Q3 2023 exclusively for PC.
