Gaya Simulations Announces Nine New Greek Airports

Gaya Simulations Greek Island Airports Msfs (4)

After their huge product announcement stream during the weekend, Gaya Simulations announced a further nine airports all in the Greek Islands. It is also confirmed that the airports will be packaged together in 3 separate packs, providing customers with 3 airports in a single package.

Greek Islands 1

The first of the three packages announced will include the following airports:

  • Ikaria Island National Airport (LGIK)
  • Kalymnos Island National Airport (LGKY)
  • Leros Municipal Airport (LGLE)

Ikaria Island National Airport primarily sees flights to Athens with Olympic Air and Sky Express and is limited by the 4,530ft runway.  As for Kalymnos Island Airport, the runway is even shorter at just 3,720ft and sees Sky Express visit Kos, Rhodes, and Leros. Finally, Leros Municipal Airport sees similar routes from the 3,320ft runway. Gaya Simulations shared a handful of renders from the airports in Greek Islands 1 package.

Greek Islands 2

The second of the three packages announced will include the following airports:

  • Mytilene International Airport (LGMT)
  • Syros Island National Airport (LGSO)
  • Old Paros National Airport (LGPA)

Mytilene International Airport is one of the biggest airports compared to others in the package with many seasonal routes to and from the airport. European airlines such as Finnair, Jet2, TUI and Eurowings visit during the summer months. In contrast, Syros Island National Airport only sees Sky Express fly to Athens, whilst Old Paros National Airport is now a redundant airport due to the fact New Paros Airport opened up in 2016.

Greek Islands 3

The final package announced includes the following airports:

  • Milos Island National Airport (LGML)
  • Astypalaia Island National Airport (LGPL)
  • Naxos Island National Airport (LGNX)

With only a 3,380ft runway, Milos Island National Airport sees traffic only to Athens, but passenger numbers have been growing over the past few years. Astypalaia Island National Airport also features a short runway, but sees a handful of other destinations such as Kos, Leros, Rhodes and Athens. Finally, Naxos Island National Airport is similar to that of Milos with only routes to Athens.

That concludes everything announced from Gaya Simulations. It is expected that all of these airports will be coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator, whilst Prepar3D and X-Plane 11 conversions are on the plans but will depend on how the market shapes over the next few months. This brings the total number of airports in development by them up to 16. You can read more about the announced airports such as Munich, Zurich and Stansted in our previous post.
