Having spent many years flying to Alicante (LEAL) in various capacities, it’s an airport I have a strong affection for. We have been using a version of the airport for many years from Eiresim, but it hasn’t seen any love for many years. Luckily for us, developer PILOT’S stepped up and has spent the best part of a year developing the Spanish seaside airport.

Let’s look at some facts. It’s a hugely busy airport for tourists. Although it peaks in the summer season, it sees frequent flights from a variety of airlines including low-cost, charter airlines and legacy carriers. Whether people are travelling to party up in Benidorm, or travelling south towards Torrevieja, it is no wonder it holds the crown as the fifth busiest airport in Spain. Over 13 million passengers hurtle down the runway at some point throughout the year and that number is increasing all the time.

As it is such a desired destination in my scenery library, I couldn’t wait to get in and try out the airport.
