iniBuilds Southampton - Where History meets the sea! 🌊 🏗️ 

Welcome to today's new scenery project announcement and mini project update from our scenery team!

It was only a few weeks ago we released one of our most popular sceneries to date - iniBuilds Honolulu International Airport 🌴It was a great project, and we are super thankful to all of you who supported us on that project; but also participated in our humanitarian efforts for the Hawaii Wildfire crises whereby we donated 10% of all revenue in the first month to the American Red Cross. ❤️

We have made numerous updates to a whole host of sceneries in the past few weeks and are currently working on a large, significant update to JFK, to support users on certain PC configurations on performance. This should also have a positive impact to those on Xbox.


Without further delay, we are super excited to announce iniBuilds Southampton Airport! 🌊 🏗️.

Southampton Airport (ICAO: EGHI) is an international airport located in the south of the UK! A focus city for BA Cityflyer today, the airport has had a varied history going back to 1910, and held great significance in the World Wars. 🛫

Today, the airport serves over 700,000 passengers a year with a wide variety of regional and international carriers from British Airways to destinations in France and Spain to airlines such as KLM flying to Amsterdam. There are also extensive operations to the Channel Islands with numerous carriers such as Aurigny and Blue Islands! 🌊 Perfect to take the ATR out on some short hops 😉 




We have gone into extreme detail into this scenery and you can see that we have covered a lot of detail in all areas of the airport. When we teased this scenery last week; people questioned why we selected this airport? iniBuilds is a global team, with our staff coming from all over the world but our Head of Scenery Development and a few staff actually have Southampton as their local airport! So you could say its our scenery team's local airport 😉
