MagMexico Previews Simón Bolívar Airport for MSFS

Scenery developer MagMexico, renowned for its other Latin American scenery releases such as Tijuana International Airport (MMTJ) and Monterrey International Airport (MMMY), has announced the development of Simón Bolívar International Airport (SVMI) for MSFS.

Simón Bolívar International Airport (SVMI) is situated 13 miles west of downtown Caracas and serves as the primary gateway to both the city and Venezuela. Originally inaugurated in 1945 as Aeropuerto Internacional de Maiquetía, the site’s selection was recommended by Charles Lindbergh to the then-operating Pan American Airways for airport construction. Notably, the airport’s development and construction were subsidised by the United States of America as part of its Airport Development Program.

Presently, despite limitations due to the ongoing political crisis, the airport remains operational, serving both domestic and international carriers that operate flights to various destinations. It acts as a hub for numerous Venezuelan airlines, including Avior Airlines, Aeropostal, Conviasa, and LASER Airlines, among others. International carriers such as Turkish Airlines, offering service to Istanbul, Air Europa and Iberia with routes to Madrid, and TAP Air Portugal serving Madeira and Lisbon, also frequent the airport.

MagMexico, an MSFS scenery developer, has unveiled its plans to develop this significant regional aviation hub. Accompanying the announcement are early in-development screenshots, primarily highlighting the detailed interior of one of the airport’s terminals. If the exterior matches this level of detail, this scenery might become a noteworthy addition in the near future.

Currently, limited information is available about the overall depth of the scenery, and neither release date nor price point has been disclosed. When questioned about potential availability on the Prepar3D platform, the developer confirmed that this would remain an MSFS exclusive release.

As always, we will endeavor to keep you informed on any new developments regarding this project, including it’s anticipated release date and pricing.
