The airport Lugano is a small international Swiss airport in the canton Tecino. Its location is between the three towns of Agno, Muzzano and Bioggio. The fascinating part of this airport is surely the breathtaking approach, probably one of the most beautiful approaches in the world. Landing on 01 takes you across the picturesque Lake of Lugano where you get the most out of the reflection and shadowing techniques in X-Plane 10 Global.

The most frequent aircraft in Lugano is the Saab 2000 operated by Darwin Airlines offering Code-Share flights with Alitalia to destinations like Rome, Cagliari and Olbia. The most important route though is the flight to Zurich for Swiss International Airlines.

2010 saw the airport handling more than 170.000 passengers taking off from the 1.350 m long runway.

Players can expect highly detailed airport scenery of Lugano for X-Plane 10 with high resolution photo textures for the 3-D models. All airport buildings are presented as they are in real life, while there are new vegetation details with approx 20.000 grass polygons. There's also night lighting in real time, a sloped runway and a full manual and charts for the flight simulator completist. That's plenty of detail to provide an authentic experience.
