Bonaire is a small island in the Southern Caribbean and is a popular holiday destination among surfers and divers, thanks to its clear water and magnificent coral reefs. First colonised by the Spanish, in 1636 it was occupied by the Netherlands which it still belongs to today.
Exactly 300 years later, the first airport was built by the Dutch. It served as a hub for American forces in the Second World War, which it was too small for, though. Therefore, a new airport was constructed – “Flamingo Airport” was born. Today, this airport operates several short-haul flights across the Caribbean, and serves as a stopover for the Dutch KLM on long-haul flights.
This scenery offers a highly detailed recreation of Flamingo International Airport (BON / TNCB) near the city of Kralendijk on Bonaire.
Based on thousands of on-site images, highly detailed & true to original building models and high-resolution textures were created. Realistic and dynamic night lighting, custom taxiway signage and passenger animations bring the airport to a virtual life.

Conclusion by Twinfinite.net: "Every time I see an airport by Jo Erlend Sund, it feels like he managed to break new grounds in what is possible to do with the scenery in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Aerosoft’s Bonaire Flamingo Airport may not be a big airport, but it’s exceptionally good and beautifully detailed, with many “extra” features included that contribute to creating a package that is very easy to recommend."
