Alpha Release! Product is not in a finished state!

Welcome to Nepal!

Tribhuvan International Airport (IATA: KTM, ICAO: VNKT, colloquially referred to as TIA) is an international airport located in Kathmandu, Nepal. The airport is named after Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah, the former King of Nepal. It is operating with a tabletop runway, one domestic and an international terminal. As a sole international airport, it connects Nepal to over 40 destinations in 17 countries.

The airport is a hub for two international airlines, the flag carrier Nepal Airlines and Himalaya Airlines, along with several other domestic and regional carriers. The airport is considered as a starting point for Mount Everest, with several daily flights to Lukla. Several airlines also offer Everest sightseeing flights out of Kathmandu.

What's in it?
This is an alpha version, the airport is not finished. Currently the package contains following features:
* Handcrafted buildings of the International Terminal, Tower and entrance gate and many more with optimized 4K PBR materials.
* Custom runway & taxiways  with correct naming and textures matching reality as close as possible.
* Custom aprons with textures matching reality as close as possible.
* Correct ground markings amd lines.
* Basic night lighting and correct approach lights
* Correct parking spots.
* Correct comm. frequencies
* Handcrafted model of prominent UNESCO World Heritage Boudhanath stupa that can be seen on any approach.
* Many ground objects to make airport more lively.

What's not in it (yet)?
* Handcrafted versions of the domestic terminal, military area and smaller hangars.
* Taxiway signs.
* Correct approaches and departures. (just the generic ones, which are not necessarily correct)
* Corrected ground services.
* Car park needs some love.

Many of these things will be added in future updates.

Where should I fly to?
My personal favorites are: Lukla, Pokhara, Jomsom, Jumla, Paro

Enjoy your flights around Nepal!

I must applaud the attention to details in the creation of this airport. The handcrafted model of the UNESCO World Heritage Boudhanath stupa is so beautiful. Also the details of the tarmac artifacts and hanger is most welcome.

May I suggest removing ALL the moving ground vehicles, as even with the latest Version 0.4 there are movements of vehicles that collide with parked aircraft. With the introduction of GSX, the developer could incorporate them directly into the airport avoiding collisions.

Thank you.


cheers for the update boss

It would be great to have stairs working. I think for this the only thing that needs to be changed is the type of parking position.

Not working after Sim Update 9. Kindly update it. Thanks!

Can confirm that there are very confused tugs, stairs, and buses moving back and forth!😅 Hopefully we can get Stairs working again, that would be amazing.

Having said that, great model overall! Only other critique would be the terminal area in front of gates 1-3 is a bit too tall. Maybe 50%.

4.5 stars right now! Definitely insight of perfect I think. Thank you!

9 month(s) ago / Thanked by Troglodytus

Just spawned in theres phantom push back tugs rolling around everywhere think it needs an update 😋

11 month(s) ago / Thanked by Troglodytus

still waiting for the update, will be sad if this project was ditched 😞

Nice work!!!😃

I'm not sure what went wrong, but tugs, luggage trucks, stairway cars are going crazy all over the place. 😊

Looking forward to an update.

how far away is the next update? Otherwise great scenery.

Airport works fine with SU5, here is a video I made of the RNP approach arriving on your beautiful scenery:


Great job !

can we please get an update in this scenery 😞

Very good scenery ! Still have some work to be done, but it's very good for an alpha I'm impatient that you correct approach ! (Autoland is terrible at the moment)

Tugs rolling down the hill without control are really annoying... its a good scenery otherwise

Nicely done! Thanks!

Thanks for taking your time to make this airport, just one issue for me, there seems to be a lot of small tugs (pushback machines) just wondering on its own in the domestic apron side (north west apron).

this is one of my favorite airport love to see a model for it in the flight simulator.

These items are currently on the list and will be processed soon!
Suggestion, bugs and ideas for the future.

  • Version 0.4 February 26, 2021

    Changes v0.4 (Hotfix):

    Some fixes for reocurring issues introduced in previous versions. I am very sorry for that!

    * Improved texture on runway. It is still dirty, but not as prominent anymore
    * Fixed a texture issue on VIP Gate
    * Removed most of the Ground Vehicles. Apron is now more emptier, however, the immersion should be less broken now by vehicles going crazy.
    * Corrected TIA sign. Hopefully the spelling in Nepali language is correct now. Please let me know!

    I am very sorry for misspelling. It was not my intention to offend anyone, it is simply a limitation of both, my language skills and fonts in Blender (Modelling Software).

  • Version 0.3 February 26, 2021

    Changes v0.3:

    * Added custom VIP Terminal
    * Added custom VIP Entrance

    * Added custom buses for Yeti Airlines, Bouddha Airlines and Airport owned ones
    * Added custom Mi 17 Nepalese Army Air Service Helicopter
    * Refined Textures on Ground - Aprons are now dirtier
    * Added Service Lanes for Ground Vehicles to drive on - It improved the issue with baggage carts all over the place, but not solved it completely...
    * Many small Bugfixes and Improvements

  • Version 0.2 January 27, 2021

    Changes v0.2:

    * Correct taxiway names.
    * Correct communication frequencies.

    * You can fly the Tara Air Cessna 208B Caravan by the way. The livery is included in the package and just needs to be dropped in the community folder as well!
