Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Will Feature All the Airports of the World

Microsoft has released another material on Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, as part of the Feature Discovery series. The theme of the video are airports. It turns out that in the game we will see all the airports of the world, and a large part of them will be manually customized or created from scratch based on the appearance of places in the real world.

We know what Microsoft Flight Simulator airports will look like.


  1. Microsoft Flight Simulator will feature all the airports in the world;
  2. 37,000 objects will be customized manually to ensure greater realism;
  3. The 80 most popular airports will be the result of meticulous, manual work of the developers, based on satellite images;
  4. These locations will also have vehicles and staff.

Microsoft presented another video from the Feature Discovery series (you can watch it below - it's really worth it), dedicated to Microsoft Flight Simulator. This time the subject is airports. It seems that in the game we will see all the objects of this kind that can be found around the world.

But that's not all, because as many as thirty-seven thousand airports will be manually edited - thanks to that they will look much better and reflect the characteristics of real places more faithfully. In addition, the eighty most popular airports will be handcrafted by the developers, based on satellite images. All this to ensure the highest possible level of realism.

It is worth noting that the presentation of airports will not be limited only to geography - we will find there, among others, moving vehicles (at night, they will be driving with lights) and staff performing their duties. A curious player will be able to see all kinds of activities related to the flights themselves as well as the preparation of the planes (e.g. refuelling or transporting luggage on board).

We would like to remind that Microsoft Flight Simulator is oming for PC and Xbox One. The game should be released this year, but there is no specific release date yet.
