Third-party developers have shared news about upcoming airports for Microsoft Flight Simulator, while a couple more have been released.
We start with MK Studios, which announced Philadelphia International Airport (KPHL) in Pennsylvania, United States.
This major passenger and cargo airport was revealed with a single screenshot and a "5" with a landing emoji, which likely means it's going to be released in May, albeit we can't be sure.
We also get a new video of East Midlands Airport (EGNX) by Pyreegue showing the Skylink bus. The animations certainly are impressive for such a small detail.

Aerosoft's partner developer Aviation-Sim-Design revealed new images of Norden-Norddeich Airfield (EDWS) in Lower Saxony, Germany. Interestingly, we learn that the airport is about to enter beta and the people that appear in and around the terminal (or lack thereof) change with the time of day.
The first release of the day comes from France VFR, and it's Tarbes–Lourdes–Pyrénées Airport (LFBT) in France. While it isn't a massive airport, it's known as a popular destination for Pilgrims visiting the nearby sanctuary and for being a relevant storage facility for mothballed airliners.
It's priced at $11.05 on Simmarket and offers the following.
- High resolution ground textures reworked aerial images from IGN.
- Detailed ground markings.
- Photo-realistic 3D buildings specific.
- Vegetation reworked on the platform and its surroundings.
- Realistic night lighting reworked.
- Runways profiles (slopes) reworked.
- Compatible with our VFR FRANCE product range.
- Geo-referenced data for maximum compatibility with future add-ons installed on the same area.
- Development process 100% SDK (System Developement Kit) specifications compliant, ensuring maximum compatibility with new releases.
WingSim released another airport in Colombia, and it's Perales Airport (SKIB) serving the city of Ibagué. It's Available for $16.07 on Simmarket.
You can check out a few screenshots below.
