You’ve been waiting for this one!

Melbourne International Airport is coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Modelled by our Orbx team led by Sascha Normann, YMML has been meticulously recreated, from the intricacies of the terminals to the sprawling runways and taxiways.

Located to the northwest of Melbourne CBD and a stone’s throw away from Orbx HQ at Essendon Fields, YMML is the second busiest airport in Australia. Taking over from Essendon in 1970 as the main airport for Melbourne, “Tulla” was expanded to 4 terminals with 68 gates in 2023 with just over 40 airlines operating from the airport. It is the gateway to the buzzing and contemporary city of Melbourne.

We are proud to bring our second-home to MSFS, with every detail of the airport being carefully crafted, as it captures the essence of the airport, with precise runway markings, accurately placed signage and faithfully replicated buildings.

Explore this part of the world down under and go domestic or international for your next destination. Fly over the Melbourne CBD enhanced by the city landmarks pack.

Not to be missed, this is a must have in your Orbx collection.
