Mykonos Airport (IATA: JMK, ICAO: LGMK) is the international airport of the Greek island of Mykonos. It is located 4 kilometers southeast from the town of Mykonos at a 405ft elevation. It serves flights to domestic and European metropolitan destinations due to the island being a popular leisure destination.
The airport first operated in 1971. It nowadays has a single runway designated 16-34 which is connected to the apron via two small taxiways, so backtrack is needed for every departure and landing.
The apron has been redesigned in 2020 to hold seven (7) parking positions, all of them requiring a pushback procedure. A renovated Terminal and a brand-new Fire station have been completed and delivered in May 2021.
Mykonos airport is equipped with and NDB (FREQ:401) a VOR (FREQ:110.00) navaid and has several instrument procedures (recently including RNAV).
Mykonos island is called “the island of winds”. Most days of the year strong gusting winds (usually from North/Northeast) blow at the island and the airport vicinity. Those winds along with the short runway length (6.244ft) and the hills around it make the landing a challenging procedure!

Conclusion by FlightSim.com: "The scenery looks great no matter what time of day or night, and in terms of performance, you won't be disappointed to know that even in 4K resolution, you can still get a pretty decent framerate with a nice smooth overall experience.
So, in my opinion, Aerosoft Airport Mykonos for MSFS is definitely something you should pick up for the simulator."
