About Abu Dhabi Zayed International
Zayed International Airport, also formerly known as Abu Dhabi International Airport is the primary international airport serving Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. It is the second busiest in the country after DXB and is the hub for Etihad Airways, the country’s second flag carrier, as well as Wizz Air Abu Dhabi and Air Arabia Abu Dhabi.
The airport is located 30 kilometers east of the city and covers a massive 3,400 hectares of area. The airport is served by 28 airlines including Aeroflot, Air India, Gulf Air, IndiGo, Saudia, and Vistara which offer services to 128 destinations across more than 40 countries. The airport was very recently renamed to Zayed International Airport after Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE’s founder.
iniBuilds’ Abu Dhabi Zayed International features hand-made ground textures with crisp, bespoke texture sets for the runway, aprons, paths, and roads. The airport rendition is a true-to-life airport recreation complete with custom ground decals, signposts, vegetation, parking barriers, and more.
Furthermore, the scenery features accurately modeled and positioned dynamic airport lighting, highly detailed models of all airport buildings and objects, and an up-to-date airport layout referencing the latest charts. Moreover, custom-built jetways with realistic variations using PBR texturing and animations have also been added. The developers have also included an official GSX Pro profile in the scenery folder.
iniBuilds’ Abu Dhabi Zayed International is available to purchase on the iniBuilds Store or on their desktop add-ons manager iniManager. The product retails at GBP 14.99 exclusive of taxes. iniBuilds has also released a limited-time weekend bundle that also includes their Dubai International scenery and costs GBP 19.99 exclusive of taxes for both UAE world hubs.
