In a move that surprised exactly nobody, Mathijs Kok made an announcement on the Aerosoft forums that Mega Airport Johannesburg is cancelled. According to him, Aerosoft does not have and is unable to obtain the necessary imagery to finish this airport up to their standards. Though the project is now officially done for, Mathijs keeps hoping that someone will be able to deliver the required imagery that is needed to finish this airport.
Aerosoft announced Mega Airport Johannesburg back in 2014. After some updates it became very quiet around the project. In early 2016 Mathijs made the announcement that the original developer was not able to complete the airport, but some time later he announced that the project was still ‘in progress’ and made some hints it would be coming in 2016 (which was later changed to ‘hopefully 2017’). In June this year the project was still ongoing and Mathijs made another announcement just in November stating the project was not dead.
Now let’s hope that this is not an indication of what’s going to happen with Brussels airport since we’ve been waiting on that one for quite some time as well.
Thanks to Dean for the tip!
