  • Boundless Announces Glasgow Prestwick Airport for X-Plane 11 & 12


    Boundless has announced the development of Glasgow Prestwick Airport (EGPK) for X-Plane 11 and 12. As the second busiest airport in Glasgow, Scotland, it serves an average of 445,211 passengers annually.

    Prestwick Airport officially opened in 1935, though it had operated as an airfield since the early 1910s. Passenger facilities were added in 1938 and later upgraded to accommodate jet aircraft. During World War II, the RAF used Prestwick as a trans-Atlantic gateway for US Army personnel and as a training base for RAF pilots. 

    After the war, Prestwick began commercial operations, including a transatlantic route to New York. The main runway was extended in 1960 from 2,100 meters to its current length of 3,000 meters.

    In the early 1990s, the airport faced significant challenges until Canadian entrepreneur Matthew Hudson took over, constructing a railway station that made it the first Scottish airport with direct rail access. Ryanair began operating at Prestwick in 1994, gradually expanding routes to destinations like Dublin, London Stansted, and Paris-Beauvais.

    Ownership of the airport changed several times, with the Stagecoach Group taking over in 1998, followed by Infratil in 2001, which revamped the terminal in 2005. The Scottish government acquired the airport for a nominal sum in 2013.

    Today, Ryanair serves Prestwick with flights to destinations such as Alicante, Faro, Lanzarote, Málaga, and Tenerife-South.

    Currently, there is no information on the release date, pricing, or features of the Boundless rendition of Prestwick Airport.
