Features of the rendition
NMG Simulations’ latest airport rendition for Microsoft Flight Simulator features a highly detailed terminal building, high-definition PBR texturing, accurate custom-made runway and apron lighting, and is fully compatible with AI traffic. From the screenshots provided by the developer, we can see that the rendition also features various 3D buildings and objects modeled and scattered throughout the airport, custom-modeled land-side buildings, static aircraft, a modeled land-side car park, and custom vegetation both land-side and air-side. The developer also states the airport features an accurate layout in terms of runways, taxiways, and hangars reflective of the real-world location.

It replaces Durban International Airport (FADN) and uses the same IATA airport code. The airport offers scheduled commercial flights to 15 destinations around the world. It is served by several air carriers including Airlink, Emirates, Qatar Airways, South African Airways, and Turkish Airlines.
