News! - Scenery Released : LGZA - Zakynthos, Greece by Flyx Simulations Greece was all the vogue in 2020, and here is another for your collection from Flyx... LGZA - Zakynthos. Zakynthos (also spelled Zakinthos) is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. It is the third largest of the Ionian Islands. Zakynthos is a tourist destination, with an international airport served by charter flights from northern Europe. The island's nickname is "the Flower of the Levant", bestowed upon it by the Venetians who were in possession of Zakynthos from 1484 to 1797. The airport is close to the town and beach of Kalamaki. Kalamaki beach is part of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos. The endangered loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) lay their eggs at the beaches of the marine park at night during the summer months. This has resulted in aircraft movement restrictions. Flights are not permitted to take off or land between 10:00PM to 5:00AM. It is at the jurisdiction of the Greek authorities to allow aircraft movements at night under extenuating circumstances. The airport opened in 1972. An expansion of the airport's apron area to 35,100 m² was completed in 2003, and a new 22,150 m² terminal building was completed in 2008. The airport is 4.3 km from Zakynthos town and other seaside tourist destinations such as Laganas, Tsilivi and Kalamaki. The main approach into the airport is Runway 34. Aircraft usually have to fly over Laganas bay and make a 180-degree turn, before their final approach over sunbathing tourists on the busy Kalamaki beach. The Flyx scenery includes features such as; an accurate and up to date rendition of the apron , accurate and up to date 3D objects, PBR Ground and building textures, Custom animated ground traffic, 3D Vegetation, and some of the surrounding areas near to the airport.
