Created by Michael Kopatz and Peter Werlitz, Mega Airport Lisbon X has all the details including docking systems, buildings, installations and all the features a user expects from a modern scenery development in FSX and FS2004.

Lisbon Portela Airport, also known as Lisbon Airport, is the main international gateway to Portugal and one of the largest airports in southern Europe. In 2010, Lisbon Airport handled 14,035,273 passengers and 93,871 tonnes of cargo. The airport is the main base-hub of the national Portuguese airline TAP-Air Portugal. Located in the city of Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, Lisbon Airport has two main runways which can accommodate large size aircraft such as the Boeing 747.

Before Lisbon Airport was established, Lisbon was served by an aerodrome called "Campo Internacional de Aterragem" which is located in Alverca. In the late 1950’s, this aerodrome was closed and all the air operations were transferred to Portela.

In this scenery add-on, the ground texture for the airport is based on very detailed aerial images. All lighting systems, layout of taxiways and runways, navigation beacons and buildings have been recreated to rigorous and excellent standards.

A user can deactivate static aircraft to create more room for the AI traffic. Runway 03/21 in Lisbon has two special Rapid Exit Taxiways which allow the aircraft to leave the runway at high speed. The frame rate remains first-rate in spite of a wide range of objects, details and features.
