Sim-Wings releases Barcelona-El Prat Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator

No, you’re not seeing double. Just a few days after MK Studios released their depiction of Barcelona-El Prat Airport, in Spain, today it’s Sim-Wings’ turn to deliver their own version of the airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

By now, you must be very familiar with this scenery, but for those who are not, Barcelona-El Prat Airport, colloquially known as just El Prat, serves as the main international gateway to Spain’s second-largest city and the Catalonia region.

As the primary airport serving Barcelona, it plays a crucial role in connecting this vibrant cultural and economic hub with the rest of the world. Proof of this is that the airport has nearly recovered its pre-pandemic passenger numbers in 2023, reaching almost 50 million passengers served, easily placing it in the top 10 busiest airports on the old continent.

Sim-Wings has produced a series of great airports for MSFS, and El Prat seems to be no exception. For this new product, the developer utilized color-corrected custom aerial imagery for a realistic depiction of the ground textures and a seamless transition to the simulator’s default landscape.

Additionally, Sim-Wings has built a detailed recreation of numerous structures and facilities, including the recently built jetways at Terminal 1. In this scenery, you will also find animated boarding bridges, a variety of static elements like apron vehicles, and authentic dynamic lighting effects at night.
